Saints face Clan in fight for top spot

The Selkirk College Saints look to take a major step in their quest for their fourth BC Intercollegiate Hockey League title

The Selkirk College Saints look to take a major step in their quest for their fourth BC Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) title.

Over the next two weeks the Saints play Simon Fraser University in three pivotal games that will likely determine who finishes first overall. At stake is the all-important home ice advantage throughout the playoffs that begin March 11.

“These next three games are going to have a playoff atmosphere and it’s a great time for our team to raise the level of play,” said Saints coach Brent Heaven. “If we want to bring home another championship, the next three games will help set the tone.”

SFU is two points up on Selkirk who host the Clan tonight and Saturday at the Castlegar Rec Centre at 7 p.m.
