Grizzlies sweep Durango

The Glenwood Grizzlies Midget hockey team raised its seasonal record to 10-3 with a three-game sweep of Durango last weekend at the Community Center ice rink.

On Friday’s series opener, Glenwood goalkeeper Keefe O’Connor made 10 saves and posted his second shutout of the 2003-04 season in a 6-0 Grizzlies win.

Thais Kulwick scored two goals in the contest, one each in the second and third periods, to pace the offense. Ben Guska, Pat Reardon and Andy Buchholz also scored a goal each.

With Brian King in the nets, the Grizzlies earned their second straight shutout of the Durango series with a 9-0 whitewash in game one of a Saturday doubleheader.

King made eight saves in the contest.

Jesse Kline and Guska each scored two goals. Buchholz, Grayson Hussey, Colby Burling, Andy Liberton and Marcus Bosco added to Glenwood’s 2-0 first-period lead with late goals.

Jesse Hansen recorded a three-goal hat trick in Glenwood’s 8-3 win that wrapped up the sweep. Guska added two more goals along with solo scores by Hussey, Tate Fairbanks and Trevor Kroeger.

The Grizzlies conclude the 2003 portion of their schedule with a home doubleheader against Grand Junction on Saturday. Faceoffs for the games are slotted for 2 and 3:30 p.m.
