Steamrolling its way through the regular season schedule, Steamboat Springs hockey is 7-3-1 on the year. 

One thing to note about that record though, is all three losses have come to 5A schools when Steamboat competes at the 4A level. 

The Sailors are 3-0 in league play and hold the No. 5 overall ranking in the 4A classification, putting the team in the driver’s seat for a deep run come the playoffs in late February. 

Steamboat’s most recent win came against Summit on Saturday, Jan. 21. The team put in seven goals including a hat trick from senior Kael Pearson, who helped launch the team to a 7-3 victory. 

Next up for the Sailors will be a road game against Glenwood Springs on Friday, followed by Steamboat’s senior night celebration at 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 28, in Howelsen Ice Arena.
