SoHi hockey falls to Chugiak

The Soldotna hockey team fell 6-2 to the Chugiak Mustangs Thursday night in a nonconference clash in Chugiak.

A power play goal by Galen Brantley III in the first period left SoHi trailing 2-1, and Wyatt Medcoff tied it early in the second, but the Mustangs came back with three goals — starting with Tyler Huffer’s tiebreaking shot with 8:04 left — of the period to take a 5-2 edge into the final frame.

Stars head coach Indy Walton said the game was closer than the final score indicated, and Chugiak ended up leading the shots tally 22-14, including an even third period.

SoHi goaltender Josh Tree stopped 22 shots on goal, while Chugiak goalie Daegen Love warded off 14.
