After sitting out a year, the Craig Puck Ewes have returned to the ice for the 2013-14 season in the Women’s Association of Colorado Hockey.
The Puck Ewes have played five games so far and jumped out to a 1-4 record in the Women’s Association of Colorado Hockey Mountain division. They have three more to play in 2013, before breaking over the winter holidays and resuming play in January.
Most recently, the team lost at the Glenwood Springs Ice Queens Sunday 7-0. It was their second loss to the Ice Queens this season, to go along with two losses to the Steamboat Bobcats and win over the Steamboat Storm.
The Ewes play at the storm again Friday, followed by a home game against the Vail Twin Peaks Saturday at the Moffat County Ice Arena.
