A Saturday trip to the Front Range produced a tie and a loss for the Glenwood Springs Youth Hockey Association’s Midget Minor A team.

The Grizzlies skated to a 2-all draw with the Junior Eagles in the afternoon and emerged on the bottom end of a 5-1 score against Mullen in the evening.

Getting goals from Joseph Capraro and Cam Avery, the Grizzlies more than held their own with the Junior Eagles.

Capraro opened the scoring in the first period. Dawson Quint assisted.

The Junior Eagles had an answer in the second period, with a goal by Grady McGuire knotting the game up.

An unassisted tally from Avery recaptured the lead for the Grizzlies early in the third. The advantage held for more than 11 minutes before Cooper Hoogenbloom found net to knot the game up.

More than eight minutes of scoreless hockey followed.

The shots-on-goal battle was tight, with the Junior Eagles racking up 23 to Glenwood’s 22. Grizzly goaltender Alex Parrish finished with 21 saves.

Against Mullen, Capraro scored Glenwood’s lone goal. The power-play strike, which came in the third period, was assisted by Tanner M. Wood.

Mullen jumped out in front with four unanswered goals – one in the first period and three in the second.

The Grizzlies lost the shots on goal battle, 31-14, in the game. Parrish made 26 saves in the face of constant peppering.
