Saints blow three goal lead; fall to Okanagan 5-4

Early success not enough to ensure a win for the Selkirk College ice squad

The Selkirk College Saints got off to a great start on Friday night at the Castlegar Community Complex against the visiting Okanagan College Coyotes.

Goals from Scott Jago, Justin Sotkowy, Nithen Dhaliwal, and Andrew Green put the Saints up 4-1.

Unfortunately, Selkirk couldn’t keep up the momentum as Okanagan slowly chipped away at the lead. Dave Mann tied the game up at 8:18 of the third period for the Coyotes with a power play marker. With just over a minute left, Chris Glen put the visiting team up for good, scoring on Selkirk’s Spenser Wong.

The Saints next action is this weekend when they head to the coast to take on Trinity Western University in Langley on Friday and Simon Fraser University in Burnaby on Saturday.
