After clinching first place and home ice advantage with a 3-2 win over Eastern Washington University on Saturday, the Selkirk College Saints fell flat the next day in the return match-up, losing 5-1.

Uriah Muchaga of EWU opened up the scoring at 8:01 of the first period. Saint forward Logan Proulx tied the score at 1:48 of the second with a power play marker assisted by Ben Starbuck and Jordan Wood.

After that it was all Eastern, as the Eagles pulled away with four unanswered goals including two from Bret Kellogg and singles from Jake Flynn and Ryan Pajimola.

Alex Sirard was in net for Selkirk and stopped 27 out of 32 EWU shots.

 

The Saints try to get back on the winning track with a road trip next weekend when they take on Thompson Rivers on Friday in Kamloops and Simon Fraser University in Burnaby on Saturday.
