SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — The Tahoe Grizzlies high school hockey team won three of its four games against California opposition at the Lake Tahoe Invitational Jan. 15-18. The Grizzlies swept Bishop and split with Villa Park in round robin play, including a 2-1 win over the Spartans in their tournament finale Monday, Jan. 18, at South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena.

For Tahoe, Monday’s win avenged a loss to Villa Park to open the tournament. The Grizzlies scored in the first and second periods, and held on after the Spartans found the back of the net midway through the third.

In their tournament opener Friday, Jan. 15, the Grizzlies lost to Villa Park 3-2. Tahoe tied the game late in the first period on a goal from Janez Demsar, but the Spartans scored twice unanswered — including a tally with 43.6 seconds left in the third period that put the game away.

The Grizzlies bounced back from defeat in their debut with a pair of wins over Bishop in consecutive days. On Saturday, Jan. 16, Tahoe beat the Broncos 3-2 with goals from Demsar, Nolan Olson and Mickey Sullivan.

On Sunday, Jan. 17, Tahoe beat Bishop 7-2 in its finale. The Grizzlies had a 3-0 lead after the first period en route to a comfortable win.

Paval Pustovoy had a hat trick in Sunday’s win, scoring all three goals in the third period. Demsar, Sullivan, Edward Parkerhill and Spencer Olson also found the back of the net in Tahoe’s second game against Bishop.
