After a dominant 8-2 win over Beaver Valley on Sunday in Fruitvale, the Selkirk College Saints men’s hockey team are set to take on Thompson Rivers University (TRU) from Kamloops on Friday, Sept. 14 at 7:30 p.m. at the Castlegar Complex.

“I think we’re looking good,” said Saints’ coach/GM Jeff Dubois. “The guys have been on the ice for a couple of weeks now. We’re starting to see things come together now as far as chemistry and production between the lines.”

Dubois says that TRU is traditionally one of the top teams in the BC college league and will be a tough test.

“It’s still early, but they’ll be a good measuring stick for us on Friday night,” he said.

“It’ll definitely be a good hockey game and a good chance to hopefully show off to the students, staff, and the community the caliber of team we have.”

Against Beaver Valley, the line of captain Jordan Wood, Trail’s Logan Proulx and former Nitehawk Mason Spear combined for eight points in the victory. Proulx led the team with two goals and two assists. Also scoring were Lucas Hildebrand, Connor McLaughlin, Cody Fidgett and Thomas Hardy.

Tickets for Friday’s game are $5 and are available at the door.
