Homer skaters drop two on the road

Houston 6, Homer 1 (Friday)

Houston 9, Homer 1 (Saturday)

The Homer Mariners dropped two weekend road games to the Houston Hawks, losing Friday 6-1 and Saturday 9-1.

Taber Webb scored Homer's lone goal in Friday's game, while Nate Miller got Homer on the board Saturday.

Homer head coach Elliot Jackson said Saturday's game was much closer than the score indicated.

"It was kind of a weird game," Jackson said.

Jackson said Homer had two goals disallowed in the first period, but were still tied going into the second. Then Houston rattled off seven unanswered goals in a ten minute flurry to bury Homer.

"That was a hard to minutes," Jackson said.

Goalie Ben Miller had 33 saves in the first game and 18 in the second for the Mariners.

Micmacs fall to Mi/SWACO

The Peninsula Micmacs lost their first game of the season Friday night, dropping a 5-3 decision to Mi/SWACO of Anchorage at the Soldotna Sports Center. The Micmacs are now 6-1 on the year.

Mi/SWACO goalie Pete Gonzalez, a Skyview High School graduate, stopped 28 shots to pick up the victory.

The Micmacs next play Jan. 9, when they'll face Wassup of Anchorage at the Sports Center. Game time is 7:30 p.m, and tickets are $5.
