Caleb Olien scored four goals and goalie Lucian Olney stopped 22 of 25 shots to help the Boulder Hockey Club's 16U/JV team secure the Toreys Division championship at the 2021 Kingdom Kup on Oct. 3.
It was one of two championship games played in the tournament hosted by Summit Hockey. The Utah Junior Grizzlies 18U team took home the Greys Division title with a 4-3 double-overtime victory over Centaurus' CPHL Tier 1 team.
Johan Stork recorded assists on three of Olien's goals and added one of his own as the Bison trampled the Utah Junior Grizzlies 16U squad in a 9-3 victory in the title game at Stephen C. West Ice Arena in Breckenridge.
Sean Fallon added two assists while Conner Wilkerson and Ryan Cahoon chipped in one goal each. Alex Lemons, James Gibbens and Calen Duran notched assists for the Bison, who went 5-0 in this year's event.
Olien's title-game performance gave him six goals and nine points in the tournament and tied him with the Grizzlies' Jace Saunders for the most scored in each category in the division. Stork also finished with nine points and his six assists in the event tied him with Grizzlies' Jacob Carter for the most tallied in the division.
Olney finished with a 3-0-0 record, a 1.33 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage. BHC's Themba Khumalo posted a 2-0-0 record to go with a 1.10 GAA and a .949 save percentage.

Centaurus' CPHL Tier 1 team found the Utah Grizzlies 18U team wasn't so easy to defeat the second time around.
The Warriors cruised to a 4-1 victory over the Grizzlies in Greys Division pool play, but the rematch was anything but a smooth ride.
The teams went back and forth in the division championship game and a goal from the Warriors' Aden Tilton (set up by Jack Tenerowicz and Oscar Nunemacher) tied the score at 3 and forced overtime. No team scored in the first sudden-death overtime, and when Benjamin Carter scored in the second extra period, the goal clinched the division title for Utah.
Ben Mattison and Julian Zerwekh contributed goals while Thomas Blash added an assist for Centaurus, which finished the tournament 4-0-0-1.
Mattison finished the event tied with Jake Riel and Tilton with a team-best three goals. Riel, Tilton and Blash led the team with four points. Eli Doran posted a team-best three assists, which tied two others for the most in the division.
West Elk Hockey Association's Jack Lambert finished tied for the second-most goals (6) and points (6) in the event.
The Summit Tigers, Mullen High School and the Glenwood Grizzlies 18U Fall teams also participated in the event.
