Stars skate past Panthers Peter Kim had a four-point night and Derek Martin and Nels Hansen each had three points as Soldotna cruised past Skyview Saturday at the Soldotna Sports Center in North Star Conference action.

The Stars are now 8-3 overall, while the Panthers are 1-8.

"They have a lot of speed and talent," Skyview coach Dave Waltemyer said of the Stars. "Their offensive attack is tough to shut down."

Kim finished with a goal and three assists, while Martin and Hansen each had two goals and an assist. Dan Jensen, Daniel Potton, Anthony Murray, Eric Newby, Dustin Sena, David Newby and Blain Johnson all had two-point nights for the Stars. Goalies Egan Gleason and Kenny Bishop combined to stop 11 shots for the shutout.

Skyview freshman goalie Kyle Kay had 33 saves.

"As a freshman, I thought he did really great," Waltemyer said of Kay. "It was taking them two or three rebounds to score on him. It was a good start for a freshman goalie."
