Craig Youth Hockey Association’s teams hosted the Glenwood Springs this weekend, with the Cougars finding varied results.

The Squirts won a pair of Saturday games against Glenwood’s silver team, the first a blowout of 11-4 and the second, a narrower 1-0 victory. The 4-2 team will next travel to Vail on Jan. 10 and 11 for matches against the red and black squads.

The Peewee group had its highest-scoring game of the season with a 9-2 loss, which led to a seven-goal shutout in Glenwood’s favor. Now 0-7 on the year, the Peewees will head to Steamboat Springs on Jan. 11.

The weekend was a good one for the Bantam team, which took down the Grizzlies, 8-0, on Saturday night and 11-6 and 6-2 on Sunday morning. The age group is currently 4-2-4-1 — four wins, two losses, four ties and one overtime loss — and will play its last game of 2014 in Steamboat on Saturday.

Initially scheduled to meet with Aspen, CYHA’s Midget team has yet to play a game in the Colorado Prep Hockey League, after cancellations by both Aspen and Steamboat. The Bulldogs tentatively are scheduled to play in Steamboat on Jan. 3 and 4.
