Kodiak 10, Kenai 5

The Bears notched a Northern Lights Conference victory on Friday.

Miles Jones took the loss on the mound, going 5 2-3 innings and giving up 12 hits and 10 runs, eight earned. Zack Selinger recorded the other out on the mound.

Homer boys 9, Soldotna 7

Tommy Bowe had a two-run home run with two outs in the top of the seventh inning to give the visiting Mariners an NLC victory Saturday.

Homer entered the seventh inning trailing 7-5, but got four runs to take the lead.

Soldotna (0-4) got two runners on in the bottom of the seventh, but could not move them around.

Klayton Justice pitched the full game for Soldotna.

“I probably made a mistake leaving him in in that last inning, but he’s a tough kid and I thought he could get out of it,” Soldotna coach George Stein said.

SoHi led 5-0 after the first inning. Justice Miller had a two-run home run for Soldotna, while Justice also had a hit that scored two.

“We hit the ball halfway decent, we just left a lot on base,” Stein said.
