Members of the Steamboat Springs Chix with Stix women’s hockey team celebrate after a game last month. The team improved its record to 4-3 after it beat the Breckenridge Blizzard, 5-4, on Friday. The Chix were down 4-3 late in the third period before getting shorthanded goals from Jen Travis and Diane Dwire to get the win. Steamboat took an early 2-1 lead in the first period thanks to goals from Sarah Fox and Sue Heineke. Shannon Forbes made it 3-1 early in the third before Breckenridge scored three straight goals to take the lead. Chix goaltender Nikki Knoebel stopped 20 of the 24 shots she faced. Steamboat next plays Sunday when the team travels to Vail.
