The Homer Mariners hockey team avenged a loss to Soldotna over the weekend with a 3-1 nonleague win over the Stars Tuesday night on the Homer Spit.

After being handed a tough 4-3 loss by the Stars last Thursday in the Peninsula Ice Challenge tournament, the Mariners returned the favor by establishing the early lead and never giving it up. Two first period goals from Clem Tillion and Robbie Larson provided the difference.

Ethan Brown scored for Soldotna’s lone goal before four minutes were up in the second period, getting the assist from Justice Miller and closing the gap to one goal. However, Garrett Butcher added the insurance goal for Homer with 6:33 remaining in the period and a 3-1 lead which would hold up in the final frame of play.

Markian Polushkin earned the win for Homer in net, saving 15 of 16 shots on net. Soldotna sophomore Will Rogers got his first start of the season and took the loss, saving 27 of 30 shots sent his way.

Both teams won’t see their next game action until the End of the Road Shootout tournament in Homer, starting Thursday, Nov. 20.
