MEN’S HOCKEY SUFFERS PRESEASON SETBACK AGAINST SELKIRK

TRAIL, British Columbia – Playing in a rematch of last year’s BCIHL championship series, the Trinity Western men’s hockey team were unable to keep up with Selkirk as the Spartans dropped a 9-0 decision in preseason action Friday at Cominco Arena.

The Spartans trailed 2-0 after the first period, but in the final 40 minutes the floodgates opened. The two-time defending BCIHL champion Saints poured in seven more goals en route to the exhibition win.

“We took one on the chin tonight and it’s obvious that Selkirk is not rebuilding – they’ve reloaded,” said Spartans coach Barret Kropf. “They’re a really good hockey team that played well under their new coach. They outskated us. They outhit us. They outworked us. They’re going to be a team that’s going to be tough to match on any occasion. Hats off to them for being ready to play tonight.

“The good thing about it is that it’s an exhibition game and we get the chance to reload without it counting against us in the stats.”

The Spartans will now travel to Castlegar, B.C., where they will play Eastern Washington Saturday at 7 p.m.
