BCIHL: Selkirk College Saints shatter SFU’s perfect record

The Selkirk College Saints maintained their grip on first place in the BCIHL standings.

The Selkirk College Saints maintained their grip on first place in the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League standings on Saturday night, rolling to a decisive 9-5 victory over previously undefeated (6-0) Simon Fraser University (SFU) in front of a raucous crowd at the Castlegar Rec Complex.

Cody Fidgett scored a pair of first period goals and assisted on three other later in the game to total five points on the night.

With the scored tied 3-3 after one, the Saints regrouped and dominated the second period, outshooting the Clan by a 15-4 margin and striking for a trio of goals.

Former Beaver Valley Nitehawk Mason Spear scored twice in the period and Thomas Hardy put the game out of reach early in the third on another Selkirk man-advantage, and the teams went on to trade a pair of goals each over the reminder of regulation with Connor McLaughlin and Garrett Kucher tallying for the hosts.

Former Trail Smoke Eater captain Logan Proulx and centre Thomas Hardy each finished the night with three points, while Garrett, McLaughlin, Spear and Scott Swiston all enjoyed two-point nights.

The loss was the first of the season for SFU, who had entered the night with a 6-0 record.

Ironically, the nine goals scored by Selkirk on Saturday night were the most allowed by SFU in a BCIHL regular season game since Feb. 16, 2008 — which also came against the Saints in Castlegar, albeit in an 11-9 Clan win.

Selkirk is next in action on Friday, November 22nd when they open a two-game series on Vancouver Island against the University of Victoria.
