Tuesday night’s scheduled boys and girls basketball meetings between Hotchkiss and host Roaring Fork high schools were postponed to a later, yet-to-be-determined date.

Hotchkiss chose not to make the trip to Carbondale with snowy roads complicating the travel process.

The Glenwood Grizzlies midget major A hockey team hosted its longtime valley rival, the Aspen Leafs, Saturday night at the Glenwood Springs Community Center ice rink.

Despite a third-period rally, the Grizzlies suffered a 2-1 defeat.

Aspen arrived averaging more than seven goals in six games, securing its first-place position in the Continental Divide Youth Hockey League (CDYHL) standings.

The Grizzlies were playing only their second league game and were looking to redeem themselves after a disappointing loss last weekend in their league opener against the Mountain States Renegades.

Aspen came out strong in the first period, but the aggressive defensive play of the Grizzlies and the stingy goaltending of Michael Brunk limited the Leafs to just one first-period goal. Aspen continued the pressure in the second period, but was again held to only a power-play goal in the frame.

Similar to the team’s first game against the Renegades, the Grizzlies took charge in the third period. Dylan Cook capitalized on one of the many scoring opportunities Glenwood put forth. Cook’s unassisted goal was the only score of the third period on a snowy Saturday.

Glenwood’s midget major A team is off until Jan. 4, when it travels to Lakewood to take on the Junior Eagles.

A picture cutline in Sunday’s edition of the Post Independent misidentified a photo of Glenwood Springs High School swimmer Keevyn Scholl as being of Christina Smith. The Post Independent apologizes for the error.
