The visiting Kenai Central hockey team bolted from the gate Saturday to defeat Juneau 7-3 and avenge a Friday night loss to the Crimson Bears.

The Kardinals (3-3 overall) received a hat trick from Levi Mese in overcoming a hat trick from Juneau’s Josef Monsef.

The Kardinals received two goals from Mese and goals from Miles Marston and Bailey Maxson in leading 4-0 with 1 minute, 57 seconds, left in the first period.

Monsef would score late in the first and in the second to cut the gap to 4-2. But Mese scored again to start the third. Monsef came back with another goal, but goals by Kenai’s Jude Gabriel and Matt Hagel iced the game.

Josh Tree had 26 saves for the Kardinals. Wolf Dostal started for Juneau and gave up four goals on eight shots. Cody Mitchell finished by making 15 saves.

Kenai hosts Soldotna at the Kenai Multi-Purpose Facility at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
