Aspen hockey beats Glenwood; Demons trounce Air Academy
The Glenwood Springs hockey team lost a crucial conference game Saturday to the visiting Aspen Skiers, 3-2, but earned a big win, 7-1, over Air Academy in a nonleague game Friday at home.
On Saturday, Aspen led 1-0 behind a goal from George Morrison early in the first period before Glenwood senior Cooper Luetke tied it barely 30 seconds later. The Demons assist came from freshman Brayden Dacuma.
Bo Melton then gave the Skiers the lead back at 2-1 in the final minutes of the period.
Aspen’s Nic Pevny scored on a power play midway through the second period to make it 3-1, and Glenwood could only get one of those goals back, when sophomore Jacob Barlow scored a touch over four minutes into the third period, also assisted by Dacuma.
The Demons finished 0 for 5 on power plays, while the Skiers were 1 for 7.
Glenwood Springs dropped to 4-9 overall and 1-6 in the 4A Mountain League. The Demons host No. 9 Summit on Wednesday at the Community Center rink.
With the win, Aspen improved to 5-5-1 overall this season. The Skiers, who are ranked No. 6 in Class 4A at the moment, next host No. 3 Battle Mountain on Friday.
