Selkirk College Saints win streak ends at 10

The Selkirk College Saints suffered their first two losses of the season on the road last weekend

CASTLEGAR – The Selkirk College Saints 10-game winning streak come to a sudden end in Langley after the Trinity Western University Spartans handed the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League’s (BCIHL) top team its first loss of the season in a 3-2 defeat Friday night.

The Saints traveled west for a weekend roadtrip that started at the Langley Events Centre, home of the second-place Spartans.

The Spartans scored the game’s first goal midway through the first period when Brayden Brown beat Saints starter Brett Huber. Selkirk College captain Dallas Calvin tied the score with just under three minutes left in the opening period, but 40 seconds later Evan Last helped Trinity Western regain the lead.

Florian Niedermaier scored shorthanded early in the middle frame to build a 3-1 Spartans lead in a second period that saw the home side out-shoot the Saints 15-8. Saints first-year forward Grant Iles tallied with nine minutes left in the third period to cut the lead, but Trinity Western all-star goaltender Silas Matthys shut the door on any comeback hopes.

Huber faced 44 shots from the high-flying Spartans offence in his first loss of the season.

The scene shifted to Burnaby on Saturday night where the Saints took on the Simon Fraser University Clan, where Selkirk registered a point in a 3-2 overtime loss.

Veteran Saints forward Dane Feeney tied the game at twos with just over three minutes left in regulation, but in overtime, Mathew Berry-Lamontagna registered the game winner with 31 seconds left in the extra frame.

Despite the pair of losses, the Saints remain five points up on second place Trinity Western. The Saints are on the road to Vancouver Island where they will play the University of Victoria Vikes on Dec. 1 and Vancouver Island University Mariners Dec. 2.
