Preps roundup: Glenwood hockey suffers a pair of losses
Glenwood Springs High School’s boys hockey team took a couple of lumps on the road Friday and Saturday, dropping a 3-0 count at Steamboat Springs in a 4A Mountain League game, followed by an 11-0 nonleague drubbing at Chaparrel on Saturday.
Despite the shutout losses, Glenwood junior goalie Hunter Oger recorded 57 saves across the two lopsided contests.
The Demons fall to 2-5 overall and 0-3 in league following the weekend action.
