Summit High Tigers roar past Columbine in hockey matchup
December 25, 2012
The Summit High School Tiger hockey team faced Columbine on Saturday evening and emerged the victors with a 7-5 win.
Blake Horan received a pass from Travis Potts and skated and jived past two of the Columbine defense men for the first goal of the game and a 1-0 lead at the end of the first period. Following Summit’s strong start, Columbine came out strong in the second period, scoring two goals during the first two minutes of play. Sean Farley had an opportunity to tie the game with a penalty shot but was denied by the Columbine goalie Charlie Marchese.
However, Summit did respond by scoring its next three goals in a matter of three minutes of play. George Kamins and Karl Olsson Deem provided an assist to Travis Potts and then Potts fired a slap shot from the top of the circle to take the lead. Horan dumped the puck and retrieved it with a pass to Peter Grotemeyer for the fourth goal of the game.
Columbine answered with two more goals but Summit’s Marc Demers took a shot from the point and scored his first high school goal to take the Tigers into the locker room with a 5-4 lead at the end of the second period.
Columbine scored first in the third period but that’s all they had left. Potts, however, scored a hat trick as his third goal was assisted by Kamins and Ben Schoeffield.
With the goalie pulled for Columbine, Jack Nevicosi took advantage of the empty net and scored the final goal for a Summit win of 7-5.
Freshman Wyatt Dickerson was in goal for the Summit team and had 36 saves for the evening.
“This was a must win game for us. We are now 2-2 for league play going into the holiday break,” said head coach Chris Ruhly.
The Tigers will face Regis at the Family Sports Center on Jan. 4.
