After dropping into the “second-chance” bracket of the Northern Lights Conference volleyball tournament, Soldotna saw its season come to an end with a tight 3-2 loss to the Colony Knights, Friday at Palmer High School.

The No. 3 seed Stars won the first set 25-20, then went back and forth with No. 4 Colony, as the Knights won the second set 25-16, SoHi won the third 25-17, and Colony tied the match up with a 26-24 win in the fourth. The winner-take-all set went to Colony 15-11.

Soldotna beat local rival Kenai 3-1 on Thursday to advance to the quarterfinal round against second-seeded Kodiak, but lost to the Bears 3-0, placing the Stars into Friday’s consolation bracket.
