Summit County, Colorado

As the winter sports season rapidly approaches, some Summit High hockey players are showing they’re already primed for play.

The Tigers’ fall tournament team wrapped up a first-place finish in the Aspen Fall Face Off last weekend. Summit, led senior Dak Dice’s seven points, went 3-0-1 over the tourney beating Arapahoe 2-0 in the final.

Senior goalie Andrew Dunlap stopped all 10 shots he faced in the title tilt, and the Tigers’ two first-period tallies from Dice and Mitchell Stashick held up to the final buzzer.

The Tigers started the weekend with a dominant

5-2 win over Cheyenne, Wyo. A slow start to the game left the teams tied at 1-1 heading into the third, before the Tiger offense scored four times to close out the win. Mitchell Stashick scored twice for Summit, while Dice had a goal and an assist. Senior goalie Andrew Dunlap made 14 saves in the winning effort.

Summit continued to roll in Game 2 with five different players scoring goals in a 6-0 romp over Durango. Dice, Sean Farley, Evan Streit and Dylan Junkermeier each had a goal, while Drake Blass scored twice.

Then, after a 3-3 tie with Bishop Machebeuf, Summit beat Arapahoe for the title.

Stashick finished the tournament with four goals and an assist. Junkermeier had five points total, while Streit and Farley both had four.

Blake Horan scored twice.

The Tigers, who finished last season 12-6-2, and with a handful of key players returning, look to be in position for another strong season. They start high school league play on Dec. 3 at Battle Mountain.
