Midget A’s open with two wins
Vail swept a pair from Southern Colorado 5-3 and 7-3.
In the opener, Michael Morgen did the honors, scoring the first goal of the year. Vail broke the game open with three markers – by Kyle Gilcrest, Christopher Chase and Jeffrey Savonen – in the second period. Stevie Reid finished it off with a third-period goal.
Vail trailed in the nightcap 1-0 after one period. The Rangers took care of that with a five-goal eruption in the second stanza. Greg Garman scored two goals, while Morgen, Reid and Matt Heelan also lit the lamp. Gabe Rovick and Reid scored in the final period.
Goalies Karl Eklund and Tyler Lantz both picked up wins.
