The Soldotna volleyball team split a pair of Northern Lights Conference matches in Kodiak on Friday and Saturday.

On Friday, the Stars topped the Bears 25-21, 25-18, 16-25 and 25-23. Soldotna avoided a fifth game by outscoring Kodiak 11-3 to end the final set.

Hayley Ramsell had 14 kills and 15 digs for the Stars, while Makenna Rosin had 12 kills, Skylar Shaw had nine kills, two aces and 24 digs, Bailey Rosin had four kills and 20 digs, and Alex Ashe had 39 digs.

For Kodiak, Kalameli Matautia had nine kills, Richelle Walker had seven kills, Izzy Riina had 32 digs and Kyla Villaroya had 28 assists.

On Saturday, Kodiak won 27-25, 25-22, 25-22.

SoHi coach Sheila Kupferschmid said that Kodiak lost their setter to an injury when she landed awkwardly on her leg.

“We were right in there with them,” SoHi coach Sheila Kupferschmid said. “It’s just that we’re travel weary, we’ve been lying on the floor when we’re not playing, some of that. But overall I was very much pleased with my kids’ attitudes. They just played hard to the ball.”

The SoHi defense showed up Saturday. Libero Ashe came up big with 36 digs, while Skylar Shaw had 20 digs, Ramsell notched 15 digs and 13 kills, and Bailey Rosin had 20 digs along with three kills. Makenna Rosin also added nine kills.

Kupferschmid said Kodiak’s year-old gym is a tough atmosphere to play in.

“It’s tough to be in every match, and volleyball is such an emotional game, it was an emotional weekend,” she said. “I think my kids handled the atmosphere very well.”

Homer 3, Cordova 0

The host Mariners cruised to a Southcentral Conference victory on Friday. The game scores were 25-22, 25-11 and 26-24.

Cordova won Saturday 25-18, 26-24, 14-25, 14-25, 17-15.
