  • Homer Hockey Association’s Coed Adult Hockey League held its second league night Saturday.

    The Red Rockets and Dark Destroyers matched up first with nonstop action as Destoryer’s Chris Owen scored in the first minute of the game. Rocket’s Travis Brown answered with a break-away deke on goalie Michelle Hatton to tie the game 1-1. The score volleyed back and forth with Chris Brown scoring for the Destroyers, followed by Butch Schollenberg and Steve Rich scoring for the Rockets giving the Rocket’s a 3-2 lead.

  • Ski trail or fire station? 

    Going into a meeting earlier this month with the Kachemak Emergency Services Area Board, Diamond Ridge residents and skiers who use the popular Sunset Loop Trail said they worried future construction of the Diamond Ridge Fire Station would cut off part of the trail where it crosses borough land at the fire hall site. 

  • The Homer Coed Adult Hockey Jamboree was held Oct. 25-27, at the Kevin Bell Arena on the Spit. Forty-eight players from Juneau, Anchorage, Kenai, Soldotna and Homer participated in the tournament.

    Not about to be left out of the fun, Sen. Peter Micciche, R-Soldotna, strapped on his gear and played in goal for two of the games.

  • Homer Hockey Association’s Coed Adult Hockey League got off to a energetic start Saturday night as four teams and more than 50 skaters fought for their first win.

Youth Sports

  • First year Mariner Head Coach Mark Putney is readying a large group of ball players for the short high school baseball season. 

    “We are spending time in the gym, waiting for the field to thaw, but this also helps us break down the game into smaller sections,” said Putney.

    Nahoa Jette and Tommy Bowe are the two seniors on the team, serving as co-captains. 

  • For the past few weeks, the school day ends and there’s a group of Paul Banks Elementary School kindergarten, first- and second-graders that aren’t so eager to head home. Instead, they exchange their books for balls, bats and bases. Forming a sort-of straight line between Don Felton and Kate Crowley, the youngsters head out to the field behind the school for some “baseball basics,” a program organized by Homer Little League.
