BCIHL: Selkirk Saints ground EWU Eagles

The Selkirk College Saints struck first and struck often as they dominated the Eastern Washington University Eagles on Saturday.

In BC Intercollegiate Hockey action, the Selkirk College Saints struck first and struck often as they dominated the Eastern Washington University Eagles at the Castlegar Rec Centre on Saturday with a 7-1 victory.

Trail native Ryan Edwards and Shawnigan Lake product Alex Milligan each scored twice for the Saints while former Beaver Valley Nitehawk Mason Spear, Thomas Hardy, and Matt Martin picked up the other markers for Selkirk College.

The line of Milligan, Spear, and former Trail Smoke Eater Jesse Knowler accounted for six points on the night, with Milligan getting first star honours, and Edwards and Spear receiving second and third stars respectively.

James Prigione got the win in net for the Saints as they outshot the Eagles 33-15 on the night.

Selkirk was coming off an exciting last-second 6-5 win at EWU last week, and the two victories lift the Saints into third place in the BCIHL with a 3-3-0-1 record.

Former Smoke Eaters Darnell Dyck, 2-8-10, and Logan Proulx, 3-5-8, lead the team in scoring after seven games.

The Saints host a pair of matches against second-place Simon Fraser University this weekend at the Castlegar Rec Complex with games going Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m.
