Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

The Aspen Mother Puckers B-level women’s hockey team won back-to-back contests over the weekend in Vail and Glenwood.

The MP2 defeated the Vail Twin Peaks, 4-1, on Saturday night at Dobson Arena.

Susan Wilson, of Basalt, got things started just three minutes into the game, with a goal off a pass from Katherine Gleason, of Snowmass Village.

Aspen’s Stephanie Cantor got the game-winner in the second, followed by fellow Aspenite Laurie Geromini. Both goals were unassisted.

Vail pulled their goaltender in the waning minutes of the game and Deanne Kessler, of Woody Creek, flipped a backhand shot into the empty net to bring the final score to 4-1.

Stephanie Costello, of Aspen, served a two-minute penalty for tripping. Returning Aspen goalie Amy Snyder stopped 21 of 22 shots on goal, while Aspen put 24 shots on the Twin Peaks’ net.

The next night in Glenwood, the Puckers blanked the Ice Queens, 2-0.

The game was scoreless until well into the second period, when Gina Guarascio, of Aspen, netted the game-winner off of passes from Cantor and Costello.

Cantor put in an insurance goal in the third, assisted by team captain Julie Cox, of El Jebel.

Aspen player Erica Delak sat two minutes for having too many players on the ice, and Kessler served two minutes for tripping. Margo Cuttita, of Lazy Glen, stopped all nine shots from Glenwood on Aspen’s net.

Ice Queens goalie Sonya Hemmen faced 21 shots from Aspen, stopping 19.

Aspen is now 4-0 in the Mountain League of the Women’s Association of Colorado Hockey.
