Pikes Peak Miners Remain Undefeated

Four games were played in the Rocky Mountain Junior Hockey League over the weekend and one team is still standing on top – Pikes Peak Miners. With two more league victories the Miners (9-0-0-0) remain perfect while opening an eight point lead in the standings.

Pikes Peak began their weekend road trip to Monument for a showdown with the Colorado Rampage on Friday. In their toughest test to-date, the Miners narrowly escaped with a 2-1 victory.

Drew Martin gave the Rampage a 1-0 lead in the first before a ferocious Miners attack in the second period yielded the tying goal from Patrick Alldredge. Pikes Peak pounded the net with 21 shots in the period yet still were tied 1-1 heading into the third.

Colorado were nearly as dominant in the third, outshooting the Miners 15-5, but Lars Carver scored the lone goal to win it for Pikes Peak.

Erik Anderson (4-0-0-0) stopped 33 of 34 shots to earn the win in net. A Chanhassen, Minn. native, he leads all league goaltenders with a dazzling 0.98 GAA and .978 save%.

On Saturday the two teams were back on the ice, this time ending with a dominant 5-1 Miners win. A hat trick by Alldredge along with goals by Kole Mudra and Christian Gums led Pikes Peak to their ninth-straight victory to open the RMJHL season.

Matty Taylor got the start in net for the Miners and made 34 saves for his fifth win.

Pikes Peak will be on the road again next weekend for a pair against Colorado Thunderbirds.
