The West hockey team defeated Kenai Central 9-2 in nonconference action on senior night at the Kenai Multi-Purpose Facility.
The Kardinals (6-11-0) received both goals from Logan Mese, with Avery Martin assisting on the first and Landen Cialek assisting on the second.
The Kardinals honored seniors Cialek, Reagan Graves, Caden Warren, Josiah Petty, Zach Rogerss, Ky Calvert, Celina Martinez, Ransom Hayes, Jaden Gardner, Mavrick Gabriel and Jayden Sandahl. Gabriel and Sandahl were at a junior varsity tournament in Palmer.
Kenai coach Scott Shelden said the 11 seniors are out of 42 in the program. That number is up from 25 last year due to a bunch of freshmen and first-year sophomores.
