Steamboat Springs The Steamboat Storm women's hockey team dropped to 2-2-1 in league standings after falling twice to the Arapahoe Chill Saturday and Sunday at home.
The Storm managed 32 shots during the first game, but all of those were stopped by a stingy Chill defense, which helped pitch a 3-0 shutout of the locals.
The Chill scored two of their goals in the opening period, and their final goal came near the end of the game. Storm goalie Angie Hess stopped 25 of 28 shots.
In game two, Marey Whelihan knocked in a goal on an assist from Deb Rose during the first period, and Diane Anderson scored on an assist from Lynne Bosley in the final period.
The Storm lost the game, however, 5-2.
The Steamboat players have another double-header this weekend, including a game against Synergy at 9 p.m. Saturday at Westminster. They play against Colorado College Sunday at 10:45 a.m. at Colorado Springs.
After this weekend, the Storm does not play again on the road until April 1, which will be their final away contest. The team's next home game is at 10:30 p.m. Dec. 16.
Lisa Owen, who plays for the Storm, said the games this weekend will be a challenge for her and her teammates.
"They're both going to be tough games," Owen said. "But we're looking forward to it because it's our last away weekend until April."
