BCIHL: Selkirk Saints bomb EWU Eagles

The Selkirk College Saints hockey team exacted a measure of revenge for a 5-2 loss to Eastern Washington University last week.

The Selkirk College Saints hockey team exacted a measure of revenge for a 5-2 loss to Eastern Washington University (EWU) last week with two decisive victories over the Eagles on Friday and Saturday.

The Saints travelled to Cheney, Wash. on Friday and trounced EWU 8-2, before returning to Castlegar where they put an exclamation point on their previous victory with an 11-0 shutout on Saturday at the Castlegar Rec Complex.

Former Beaver Valley Nitehawk Ryan Edwards had his second five-point night in a row, while former Trail Smoke Eater captain Logan Proulx scored twice and added three assists, Surrey native Thomas Hardy scored four goals, and goalie James Prigoni stopped 25 shots for the shutout to lift the Saints into soul possession of third place in the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League with 20 points.

The Saints jumped out to a 2-0 first period lead on goals from Proulx and Hardy, but a six-goal explosion in the second that included back-to-back short-handed markers from Edwards and Marc-Antoine Guimond, put the game away for the Saints. Former Nitehawk Mason Spear made it 3-0, and two more goals from Hardy and one from Darnell Dyck would give the Saints an 8-0 lead heading into the third.

Proulx would add another short-handed marker at 14:02 while Dyck and Hardy would complete the scoring for the Saints. Dyck scored twice and added an assist and continues to lead the Saints in scoring with 9 goals and 25 points.

Selkirk outshot the Eagles 35-25 and went 2-for-6 on the power play, with three short-handed goals. EWU was 0-for-10 with the extra man.

On Friday in Cheney, Edwards scored four times and added an assist to halt a three-game Selkirk slide as the Saints dumped the Eagles 8-2.  the Saints held a 2-0 first period lead, and extended it to 5-2 in the second, before icing it in the third. Ryan Procyshin, Jamie Vlanich, Arie Postmus, and Dyck rounded out the scoring for the Saints, and went 4-for-7 on the power play while EWU was 1-for-7. Selkirk outshot the Eagles 29-26, with Prigone getting the win in net.

Trinity Western, 14-2-0-2, leads the BCIHL with 30 points, nine points up on University of Victoria, and 10  points up on 9-7-0-2 Selkirk.

The Selkirk College Saints next home game goes against Simon Fraser University Feb. 7 at the Castlegar Complex.
