The Glenwood Grizzlies bantam A hockey team, under the guidance of coach T.K. Kwiatkowski and assistant coach Kim Fetterhoff, made its preseason debut last weekend at the 15th annual Aspen Fall Face Off tournament.

The team enjoyed a solid showing, finishing with two wins, a draw and a loss.

Friday’s afternoon game saw the Grizzlies beat host Aspen 3-1, with two goals and an assist coming Boris Kulwiec. Nathan Haas added a goal and an assist and defenseman Cam Avery had an assist. Alex Parrish chipped in with solid net play, turning away 11 shots in the first period alone.

The Grizzlies returned to action on Saturday with a nail-biting game against Arapahoe that ended in a 2-2 tie. Glenwood goals were scored by Charles Macaulay and Haas.

Later in the afternoon, the Grizzlies found themselves on the short end of a 6-1 score against Cheyenne. Glenwood’s lone goal came from Haas and was assisted by Kulwiec.

Sunday’s final game saw the Grizzlies pull off a 3-0 shutout against Front Range. Cai Cathers, Levi Fetterhoff and Kulwiec all scored goals to complement a shutout in goal by Parrish.

The bantam A squad has three more tournaments this season. The team has its official season openers today vs. Denver Country Club at 10:15 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at the Glenwood Springs Community Center rink. Check out the Glenwood Grizzly website at http://www.eteamz.com/GSYHA/.
