Adult hockey tournament attracts players from afar

Hockey players from as far away as Minnesota traveled to Homer over the Oct. 28-30 weekend for the fourth annual Homer Co-Ed Adult Hockey Jamboree. In total, 56 players — many from Alaska cities such as Juneau, Anchorage, Kenai, Soldotna and Homer — competed on five teams, said Homer Hockey Association Vice President Jan Rumble.

Players’ skills ranged from novice to players who have participated at a professional level. The teams — Nuka Bay Lingcod, Polly Creek Razor Clams, Barren Islands Blackcod, Broken Knife Wolverines, and the Sadie Peak Goats — were constructed by tournament directors to encourage competitive games throughout the weekend, Rumble said.

The Nuka Bay Lingcod won all their games except one in the round-robin tourament. The Lingcods’ only non-winning game was a tie against the Razor Clams. The skilled goaltending of Luke Mese from Soldotna and talent of his smooth skating brother Zach was a winning combination for the Lingcod, Rumble said.
