Bolts debut, Wranglers win two

The wait is over in Breckenridge. Junior hockey is back with the Breckenridge Bolts making their debut this weekend in Steamboat Springs in a three-game series against the Steamboat Wranglers. Both teams ended the weekend with some satisfaction after Steamboat took two of three games while the Bolts earned three points.

Breckenridge were the last team to hit the ice in Week 3 of RMJHL action giving the team some team to evaluate and scout their four league opponents. They came ready to go scoring the opening goal of the weekend at 8:21 of the first period when Luke Marsh became the first goal scorer in team history.

Steamboat would score the only goal of the second (Grant Longtin) and then took a 2-1 lead early in the third when Donald Nordstrom scored at 2:01. It would take the Bolts less than five minutes to find an equalizer eventually sending the game to overtime. A powerplay goal by Cory Kohut would win it for the home team, but the Bolts had a point in their very first regular season game.

It wouldn’t take long for the Bolts to secure their first victory as they would come back on Saturday night reversing the result to win 3-2. After trailing 1-0 Breckenridge would get goals from Kody Goodwin, Zach Booth and Tanner Caldarola along with the efforts of goaltender Declan Rooney (45 saves) to clinch the historic victory.

 

The teams would meet on Sunday in a matinee matchup that was even at 2-2 early in the third period. Quintin Baker and Ben Lepper would each score twice for Steamboat helping the Wranglers win 5-2.
