Soldotna scored the final three goals of the game to defeat Kenai 10-7 in the 20th Annual Kenai Central and Soldotna High Schools Alumni Hockey Game on Wednesday at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex.

Nate Anderson had a goal and four assists, and Josh Kerkvliet added a pair of goals, to power the Stars. For the Kardinals, Zack Mese had a hat trick.

Kenai grabbed a 3-2 lead after the first period, with Isaac Mese, Jed McGlasson and Jake Eubank scoring for the Kards, and Kerkvliet tallying twice for the Stars.

SoHi had a 6-5 lead after two periods, with Clayton Glick scoring twice in the period, and Dagan Walton and Kevin Stone adding goals. For the Kards, Zack Mese scored twice in the second.

In the third period, Anderson scored with 13 minutes, 9 seconds, to play to put the Stars up 7-5, but goals from McGlasson and Zack Mese got the Kards even with 6:02 to play.

However, Shayne Miller, Matt Vassille and Jonas Perletti ripped off goals at the 4:00, 3:50 and 2:33 marks to let the Stars take control of the Redford Cup, given to the winner of the game.

Proceeds from the game go to supporting the Kenai Central hockey program, with special attention toward assisting players who would have a tough time playing without financial aid. Money also will go toward the construction of permanent locker rooms at the Kenai ConocoPhillips Multi-Purpose Facility.
