The upstart Selkirk Saints handed the Eastern Washington University Eagles their first two losses of the season in a home-and-home series over the weekend.

The American squad strolled into the Castlegar Complex on Friday night boasting a 4-0 record in BC Intercollegiate Hockey League play. The Saints came into the contest with a 1-5 record so far this season.

Former Nelson Junior Leaf Scott Jago had a goal, Nelson Minor Hockey raised Caleb Georgetti added two assists and Selkirk goalie Spenser Wong stopped 36 of 37 shots as the Castlegar based Saints skated away with an impressive 4-1 win.

On Saturday night the Saints travelled to Cheney, Washington where they continued to build on the momentum, scoring another 4-1 win to improve their season record to 3-5. Former Leaf defenceman Adam Makaroff, Garret Kucher, Jordan Wood and Nithen Dhaliwal scored for the Saints. Wong was again stellar between the pipes to earn his second win in as many nights.

The Saints now sit tied for third in the BCIHL standings with a record.

Next home games for the Saints are 7:30 p.m. Saturday  and 1:30 p.m. on Sunday at the Castlegar Recreation Complex when they host Trinity Western University.
