BCIHL: Saints shut out on road weekend

The Selkirk College Saints failed to score a goal on the weekend, as the team dropped a pair of road games in BCIHL action.

Incredibly, the Selkirk College Saints failed to score a goal on the weekend, as the team dropped a pair of road games in BC Intercollegiate Hockey League action.

The Saints were shutout by Trinity Western University on Friday 4-0 at the Langley Events Centre before falling to the Clan of Simon Fraser University 1-0 on Saturday in Burnaby.

Trinity Western University goaltender Silas Matthys earned his first BCIHL shutout and the Spartans blanked Selkirk for the first time ever, as TWU moved into top spot with a 6-2-0-1 record, two points up on the Saints who sit tied for second with University of Victoria at 5-5-0-1.

Matthys made 39 saves to earn the shutout win and was named the BCIHL Player of the Week for his efforts.

The rivalry between SFU and Selkirk College is alive and well, and was on full display Saturday at Bill Copeland Arena. SFU took advantage of a quick turnaround and the return of star forward Jono Ceci to make amends for their two defeats in Castlegar a week previously with a hard fought 1-0 victory.

While Ceci returned, SFU was without leading scorer and former Trail Smoke Eater Nick Sandor and captain Tyler Mah and the Clan needed a few other members to step up, and take the lead against the Saints.

Selkirk College fired 32 shots at Clan goalie  Andrew Parent but could not beat the former Revelstoke Grizzly and Mike Sandor’s second period goal would be all SFU needed.  The Clan worked the puck down low and fore-checked Selkirk’s defence hard, which allowed Tyler Basham to get the puck out in front to a wide-open Sandor, who beat Saints goalie James Prigione for the only tally of the night. Prigione leads all BCIHL goaltenders with a 2.30 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage.

Selkirk has the weekend off and will return to the ice Nov. 29 and 30 for a pair of games against U.Vic at the Castlegar Rec Complex.
