Summit Bantams rally to tie Gunnison

SUMMIT COUNTY – Down 4-1 late in the third period of its game against Gunnison, the Summit Hockey Bantam B team mounted a three-goal rally to forge a 4-4 tie Saturday in Breckenridge.

Summit’s Brian Andermeier scored twice in 90 seconds, and Abe Beazley scored the tying goal with just 58 seconds left in the game.

Daniel Headley scored in the second period to keep the Lightning within striking distance at 3-1 in the second period.

Summit won the early game of a doubleheader between the teams by a 5-0 score.

TJ Fisker opened the scoring less than two minutes into the game and had another before the first period ended. Addem Goodell also had two goals, and Hannah Harvey added one.

Robert Benjaman recorded the shutout in net, while Nick Springer stopped 15 of 19 shots in the second game.

Comeback saves

Bantam A’s against Vail

The Summit Bantam A’s continued their push toward the Continental Divide Youth Hockey League playoffs with a comeback win over Vail and a tie of league power Foothills last weekend.

The Lightning was down 3-0 in the second period before scoring five unanswered goals to take a 5-3 win Sunday in Vail. DJ Rogers had two goals and Mike Henthorne, Alex Edwards and Grant McGahey scored one apiece.

On Saturday, Summit played Foothills to a 2-2 tie with Billy Barto and Chase Underbrink getting the goals and McGahey assisting twice.

Pee Wee A’s

continue to roll

After handing Pueblo its first loss of the season last weekend, the Summit Pee Wee A’s beat a powerful Vail team 5-2 Saturday in Vail. Braxton Campbell’s hat trick led the way for the Lightning, as did Jeff Montepare’s pair of goals. Assists came from Brock Barto, Kyle Johnson, Campbell and Montepare.

Campbell scored Summit’s only goal in a 4-1 loss to Steamboat earlier in the day.

Kremmling too much for Pee Wee C’s

The Summit Pee Wee C’s matched Kremmling goal-for-goal until the third period of their game Sunday, eventually losing 4-2. After Kremmling scored first, Rebecca Janes answered for the Lightning on an assist from Kane Dice. Nick Hrycaj answered Kremmling’s next goal with one of his own on as assist from Becca Janes and Garrett Spenst. With the score 2-2, Kremmling took over with two third-period goals. Shellie Dickstein made 18 saves for Summit.

Another strong third period gave Kremmling a 5-2 win in game two. Dice scored both of Summit’s goals and Michael Daniels had both assists, but it wasn’t enough. Dickstein again made 18 saves.

The Pee Wee A’s are 8-4 heading into this weekend’s games against Gunnison.

Aspen overwhelms Squirts

The Summit Squirt B’s hosted undefeated Aspen Sunday in Breckenridge and went down 10-2. Dylan Horan scored both of Summit’s goals, while Zach Dobson, Dak Dice and Jon Gutierrez had assists.

The Lightning is still in the running for a playoff spot with three regular season games remaining.
