The first test of the hockey season for the Mid Alaska Conference Juneau-Douglas Crimson Bears was perfect from a coaching standpoint.
Aside from the 5-3 loss, the game had it all: fast action, a top road opponent, and adventure. Road adventure.
“Our bus broke down about 30 miles outside of Homer,” JDHS coach Dave McKenna said. “About an hour before game time. They sent another bus to get us. Five minutes after getting on that bus we almost hit a moose.”
