Selkirk College goaltender James Prigione leads all BCIHL goalies with a 2.30 GAA

Saints look for wins against UVic

Selkirk Saints face off against UVic Vikes Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at noon in Castlegar.

The Selkirk College Saints will be shooting for a strong finish to the first half of the season this weekend when they take on the University of Victoria Vikes at the Castlegar Recreation Centre.

The defending British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) champions are getting set to head into the Christmas break and currently sit six points behind the first place Trinity Western University Spartans.

Challenged by an unusual amount of injuries and struggles on the road, the Saints are eager to regain the top ranking they’ve become accustomed to over the past two seasons.

“There is so much parody in our league this season,” says Saints head coach Alex Evin. “Each weekend the standings change, so it makes each game important. One winless weekend in the Lower Mainland put us from second place to fourth place.

“Our players realize that we must play a full focused weekend or we will be left behind. We have had some great games in our home rink so far this season and I expect that to continue this weekend.”

This weekend the Saints hope to rekindle their offence. Former Trail Smoke Eater Darnell Dyck leads the Saints in points with 13, followed by Trail native and former Smoke Eater captain Logan Proulx, with 5-6-11.

The puck drops this Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at noon.
