Midget Minor team fourth in tourney
February 24, 2005
Steamboat’s Midget Minor team finished fourth in the Continental Divide Youth Hockey League tournament last weekend.
Steamboat opened the tournament with a 5-2 loss to the Junior Eagles and lost by the same score to Foothills in the consolation round.
Greg Ingalls scored both goals in the loss to the Eagles. Zach Beckwith and Jim Terry scored in the loss to Foothills.
The Midget Minor team, which consists of high school-age players, frequently was undermanned during the season, playing with 11 boys when most of the teams had twice that number.
Still, Steamboat managed to finish in the top half of the league.
Goalie Elliot Girard was integral in the team’s success, as well.
Ingalls finished second in the league in scoring this season. Terry was sixth.
