Homer Mariners hockey wins End of Road tournament

The Homer Mariner hockey team won its own End of the Road tournament Saturday by defeating Kenai Central 4-1.

The tournament marked Homer High’s first home games of the season.

Homer took the lead in the first period on a goal by Robby Larson, but Jakeb O’Brien tied it up for the Kards early in the second period. Lee Lowe would score for the Mariners before the period was out, then Ethan Pitzman and Garrett Butcher tacked on goals in the third.

Hunter Warren saved 27 for the Mariners, while Ryan Williams stopped 38 for the Kardinals, who are now 2-4 on the year.

On Friday, the Mariners played Bartlett, winning 6-1. Blakley scored two goals, while Alden Ross, Dimitry Kuzmin, Butcher and Pitzman each scored one goal for Homer.

Homer started off the tournament on rocky ground with a narrow loss to Houston. A goal from Houston broke a 4-4 tie in the final period, causing Homer to lose 5-4.
