U-14, HOT in Chilly Gunnison

GUNNISON – Summit Lightning Youth Hockey’s U14 Girls won three games at Gunnison last weekend.

Against the Gunnison Blades, the lightning struck first when Hannah Harvey picked up a loose puck at the blue line and crashed the net. The Blades kept battling and with only six seconds left to even the score at 1-1.

The second period was much like the first with each team scoring once. Gunnison put a rebound past Lightning keeper Shelley Dickstein. With 39 seconds left in the second, Harvey recorded her second goal after taking a pass from Rebecca Janes.

In the third, defenders Harvey, Anicia Ebert-Santos and Melissa Woodring help Dickstein hold the Blades to one goal while Summit added three.

With just 13 seconds in the period, Harvey recorded a hat trick on a breakaway. The Blades would score at 3:24 for the game’s third tie, but it did not last long as Summit’s Hayley Wolach would get the game winner after taking a pass from Harvey.

The last minute of the game saw Gunnison pull its goalie and add an attacker. After two quick saves by Dickstein, Harvey won a battle in the corner and fed an open Michelle Warpecha for the clincher.

On Saturday, the girls beat Gunnison, 6-3.Harvey and Wolach each recorded a hat trick, with Noelle Herrick and Melissa Woodring picking up assists.

The Lightning’s next game was an 8-1 thrashing over Los Alamos, N.M. Lindsay Peoples, Ebert-Santos, Wareham and Welch had goals. Harvey picked up five assists.

The Summit Lightning’s roster is rounded out with Hannah Charneskie and Leah Wickham. The Summit U14s are in second place in the Mountain States Girls Hockey League with a record of 5-1-1. Harvey leads the league with 21 goals.

The team would also like to thank coach Lester Warpecha and its sponsor, Alpine Anesthesia.
