GLENWOOD SPRINGS — Sam Carmer scored unassisted goals in the first and second periods and Schyler Stratton netted a shutout in net for the Glenwood Springs Grizzlies high school hockey team, which overcame a slew of penalties during a 3-0 victory against the Centaurus Warriors at the Glenwood Springs Community Center Ice Rink on Saturday afternoon.

Glenwood, which plays in the Colorado Prep Hockey League and is a member of the Glenwood Springs Youth Hockey League, also beat the Warriors 8-0 on Saturday night at the Glenwood ice rink in a day-night hockey doubleheader.

In the afternoon game, Grizzlies also got a goal from Chaz Apostolik which came with 4 minutes, 52 seconds gone in the 15-minute third period. The goal from Apostolik, a Coal Ridge High senior, capped the scoring for the Glenwood team.

Glenwood’s roster includes players who hail from Basalt, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs, New Castle, and even Grand Junction. Most of the players on the team attend Glenwood Springs High School.

Carmer put the Grizzlies ahead to stay less than three minutes into the game when he found the net at the 1:42 mark of the period. His second goal, which came at 9:03, was scored when Carmer slid past the opponent’s blue line and scored on a breakaway, with his wrist shot beating Kujo Terekhov on the far side of the net.

That, however, came after the Grizzlies turned the Warriors away on what equated to five power-play opportunities in 11 minutes. There was twice during that 11-minute span when the Warriors had a 5-on-3 advantage thanks to Glenwood’s penalties.

The Grizzlies penalty kill defense, however, held firm. Stratton recorded the shutout in goal for Glenwood, netting 23 saves. Glenwood outshot the Warriors 37-23.

In the nightcap, Cantaurus racked up 23 penalty minutes to Glenwood’s nine. Carmer scored twice with an assist, and Steele Featherstone, Ian Rothman, Joel Rothman, Cole Guy, Tristan Montover and Trevor Carmichael also scored for Glenwood, which improved to 6-1-1 overall this season. Jake Fegan had 14 saves in goal for the Grizzlies.
