The 12U Peewees also had matches changed, with games in Grand Junction now slated for Feb. 4.

The 10U Squirts Sunday games against Telluride went as scheduled, Craig Cougars falling, 5-2 and 2-1 to the Lizardheads, Hayden Urroz scoring two goals and Grant Sis one in the series.

After a tough start to the season, the 14U Northwest Colorado Blizzard made progress while on the road this weekend. Following a 7-1 Saturday loss in Vail, the combined Craig and Steamboat Springs squad took its first win of the regular season — second overall after a Jan. 13 tournament victory over Arapahoe at the DU Pioneer Classic — with a 3-2 Sunday defeat of Summit. Though the group looked to complete a sweep of the Lightning, a second game between the two ended 4-4.

Clay Durham and Jack Cashen each put in two goals during the weekend, Chase Delameter, Alan Duty, Calvin Zuschlag and Ezra Moyer one each.

In goal, John Doane had 87 saves across all three games.

The Blizzard and Bulldogs each head to Glenwood Springs this weekend, while the Squirts host West Elk Jan. 29 in their final home games.
