Game recaps

Thanks to some strong play in net, Steamboat Springs needed just two goals to take down Summit on Nov. 13 at Glenwood Springs Ice Rink. 

Nearly six minutes into the first period of this matchup, Jakob French scored the games first goal for Steamboat Springs on the power play. 

The 1-0 score held until late in the third period. Charlie Moore made it a 2-0 game late in the final minutes with an empty-net tally.

The two goalies stole the show in this matchup. Benjamin Burkart of Summit did all he could to keep Steamboat Springs at bay as Burkart stopped 23 of 24 shots faced. Meanwhile, Cash Lawrence picked up a 22-save shutout for Steamboat Springs.

Besides goaltender play, penalties were also a significant factor as the two teams combined for 20 minutes total. 

After jumping out to a two-goal lead, Glenwood Springs held on despite a late push from Summit to win 2-1 on Nov. 14 at Aspen Ice Garden.

Chase Pennell got the scoring going after the two teams were scoreless in the first period. Lucas Chartier was one of the players to assist on the Pennell goal. 

About three minutes into the third period, Chartier scored the eventual game-winning goal to make it 2-0 Glenwood Springs. Pennell picked up a helper after scoring the first goal. Mikal Martin also earned an assist, giving him two on the day.

Late in the period with the man advantage, Summit got on the board thanks to a power-play goal from Carter Conroy. Jevin Palmquist and Henry Waldorf each tallied assists on the goal.

Though Summit came up short, it wasn't due to the team's goaltending effort. Benjamin Burkart stopped 28 of 30 shots in a losing effort. His counterpart, Glenwood Springs' Catcher Davis, stopped 20 of 21 shots to earn the win.
