The Soldotna Stars picked up a 4-2 victory over Houston at the End of the Road tournament Thursday evening in Homer.

Penalties played a big role, as four of the six goals were recorded on man advantages. SoHi notched a power-play and a short-handed goal, while Houston recorded a short-handed and a 5-on-3 goal.

Sophomore goalie Billy Yoder stopped 28 of 30 shots for SoHi, while the Stars notched 34 shots on goal on offense.

Cameron Knowlton scored twice for the Stars, while Cody Nye and Cory Hanson each added a goal. Hanson struck late in the third period with a short-handed attempt to ice the game.

“It’s good for the kids to come out and skate,” said SoHi coach Derek Urban. “Their work’s starting to show.”

After Knowlton and Nye scored a pair of goals in the first period to put SoHi up 2-0, the Hawks returned the favor in the second, but Knowlton erased the opportunity to tie it up with his second of the night.

The Stars improved to 3-4 with the win.

In other tourney action, Dimond JV topped Homer 3-2.

The Mariners dropped to 2-3-1 overall with the loss.
