The Selkirk Saints maintained their number one position in the BCIHL standings with a convincing 10-1 win over Eastern Washington, Friday at the Castlegar Community complex.

The Saints’ confusing passing plays left their guests bewildered at  times as the goals started appearing on the scoreboard at a giddying pace.

It started 2:25 minutes into the first period with a goal from Selkirk’s Darnell Dyck (unassisted). Then after 9:26 minutes of play Saints’ Thomas Hardy scored (Cody Fidgett, Arie Postmus). With under three minutes left in the first Cody Fidgett scored (Jackson Garret, Logan Proulx)

before the home side closed out the frame with a goal from Dylan Smith (Matthew Luongo, Mason Spear). The score was 4-0.

Saints’ control continued in the second. Left wing rushes down the boards initiated passing plays that became shots on net and the resulting rebounds. Grabbing the loose puck near the crease at 6:09 into the second period, Connor McLaughlin jammed it between the  goalie’s pads. It would be another three goals for the Saints in the second with Cody Fidgett (Tanner Lenting), Logan Proulx) at 8:05 and Jackson Garret (Proulx, David Mead).

Eastern Washington got its sole goal of the night in the second period on an effort by Tyler Mort (Uriah Machuga, Zach Maxwell).
