San Jose sweeps two-game series with Tahoe Blue

Tribune staff report

The Lake Tahoe Blue and San Jose gave nearly 100 spectators excitement to the finish in a pair of semi-pro hockey games last weekend at the South Tahoe Ice Arena.

Andy Barrie, Emilio Beaver and Matt Quinn scored goals for the Blue in a 5-3 defeat to San Jose on Friday. John Illvento, Gary Gramprie, Derrik Wagner and Ken Venus collected assists.

San Jose iced the game late by scoring into an empty net.

The visitors again needed a late empty-net goal to put away the Blue 6-4 on Saturday night.

Beaver, Gramprie, Jim Dunleavy and Mark Seppe scored Blue goals, while Barrie, Wagner and Mark Heidt had assists.

The Blue was originally scheduled to play Seattle this weekend. Seattle can’t make the trip, but the Blue will play a team from Medford, Ore., instead. Game times are 9 p.m. Friday and 5:15 p.m. Saturday at the ice arena.
