On Jan. 8-9 at the Chuck Lewis Skating rink in Kremmling, it was wicked cold, making the ice fast and crunchy.

Game 1 for the Peewees had Kremmling against Grand Valley (Grand Junction). Kremmling prevailed 4-0. Scoring for the Cattle Kings were: Nate Kelly with 2 goals and 1 assist; Joseph Borgerding, 2 goals; Lucas Waterman had 2 assists; Luke Borgerding, 2 assists; and John Coon with 1 assist.

Continuing on his shutout ways was goalie Code Culbreath with 19 saves on 19 shots.

Game 2 this day for the Peewees , the puck was dropped at 2:20 p.m. In this contest the Cattle Kings had more than they could handle with the team from Durango. Kremmling lost 5-2. Goals for the Cattle Kings went to Logan Miyauchi and John Coon, assists to Shawn Mahorney and Victoria Robinson.

Kremmling met with Durango the following morning and again did not have the answer to this fast-moving offense. Bode Culbreath was very busy between the pipes, stopping 26 shots on goal.

In their second and final game of the weekend, the Peewees where able to outscore Grand Valley 6-3. Scoring points in this game (point for a goal and 1 for an assist) where Joseph Borgerding with 4, which included a hat trick and 1 point each went to Jacob Bentler, Sawyer Cousineau, Logan Miyauchi, Lucas Waterman, Shawn Mahorney, and Victoria and Ryan Robinson.

“This was a total team effort today including the skating of Wyatt Killinen, Edward Matthews and Luke Borgerding,” said assistant coach Kenneth Bentler. “The kids are looking better and better each game.”

New additions to the rink include a wall on the southeast end and the installation of the new scoreboard, which for the first time in club history since 1992 has penalties displayed, said longtime Cattle Kings treasurer/scorekeeper Terry Tanton .

“It was so cool to have the scoreboard with the penalties displayed, the coaches/players/referees know when a penalty is over and a team is no longer shorthanded and icing is no longer a legal play. I love it,” she said.

The skating rink is open to the public free as long as the Cattle Kings/drop-in hockey/figure skating club, is not using the rink.
