Selkirk Saints win in Nelson as pre-season ends

The Selkirk Saints scored four unanswered goals Friday night in Nelson to score a 4-0 victory over the Trinity Western Spartans.

The Selkirk Saints scored four unanswered goals Friday night at the Nelson and District Community Complex to score a 4-0 victory over the Trinity Western Spartans in a hard hitting pre-season affair.

The Spartans managed to hold the BC Intercollegiate Hockey League defending champs off the scoresheet for the 40 minutes, but three minutes into the final period Mason Spear got the home side on the board.

Former Nelson Junior Leaf Connor McLaughlin tallied seven minutes later when he scored on a deflection to give the Castlegar-based Saints the 2-0 lead.

With five minutes left in the period, Darnell Dyck gave his team a 3-0 cushion when he made good on a breakaway. Jackson Garrett completed the scoring with 30 second left in the game.

On Saturday night the action switched to Castlegar where the Saints topped the Spartans 5-1.

The BCIHL regular season starts this weekend. The Saints host Eastern Washington at the Castlegar rec complex.
