Homer goalie Ben Miller racked up 78 saves in two games to help the Mariners split a double header with the Delta Huskies Saturday in Delta Junction.
Homer got two goals from Nate Miller to lead them to a 6-5 win in the early game, and Ben Miller's 38 saves held off a late Delta rally. Miller's 40 saves in game two were not enough to overcome a hat trick by Delta's Jared Creviston, as the Huskies pulled out a 5-4 win to salvage the split.
Taber Webb and Max Drathman both scored one goal in each game. Homer also got goals from Justin Adams, Scott Owen, Drake Piper and Keith Bell Saturday.

Israel Blatchford and Brett Alleman each scored two goals for Nikiski in the loss, and goalie Luke Hardesty made 23 saves.
