Selkirk College Saints stay perfect: blank Vikes

The Selkirk College Saint’s hockey team remain undefeated after shutting out the University of Victoria Vikings 5-0 on Friday.

The Selkirk College Saint’s hockey team remain undefeated after shutting out the University of Victoria Vikings 5-0 on Friday.

After a scoreless first period, the Saints found their stride in the second and got on the board early when former Trail Smoke Eater Logan Proulx slammed home a rebound less than two minutes in. The Saints’ captain doubled the lead minutes later and went up 3-0 when Scott Swiston set up linemate Beau Taylor on a nifty back-door feed to beat UVic starter Sunny Gill.

Connor McLaughlin picked up his third point of the night when he converted on a third period breakaway and another Trail product, Garrett Kucher, netted his first as a Saint with 8.1 seconds remaining.

“I thought we had a slow start and didn’t really get up to full speed until the second period, but once we did the pressure and execution were as good as we’ve seen so far this season,” says Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. “We were able to roll four lines and get everybody involved. Defensively we kept things tights and limited shots and chances.”

Chris Hurry picked up his first BCIHL shutout with a 13-save performance between the pipes, while Gill allowed five goals on 40 shots for UVic.

The Saints next play on Friday, September 18th when they host Thompson Rivers University in the first of back-to-back weekend home games. Face off is set for 7:30 p.m. at the Castlegar Complex.
