The storied Ste. Anne Aces, gunning for their fourth straight Carillon Senior Hockey League title, won the opening game of the CSHL championship series Wednesday night at Ste. Anne with a 7-4 victory over the Grunthal Red Wings.

Miguel Rondeau opened the scoring for the Aces just 59 seconds in, tied later in the frame by Derek Gingera as the two teams were knotted at 1-1 at the first intermission.

But that's when the powerhouse Aces went to work scoring four unanswered goals in the second as they went on to score six straight goals to go up 7-1, before the Red Wings responded with three goals to close out third to make it a 7-4 final.  

Miguel Rondeau, along with Steph Pattyn and Keith Grondin each had a pair of goals for the Aces while Russell Trudeau added a single. Derek Gingera scored twice for the Red Wings and Joel Schreyer and Remi Laurencelle contributed singles.

The Aces outshot the Red Wings 51-37 in the series opener, in a re-match of last year's championship series that saw the Aces win in six games.

Game two in the series will be played Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in Grunthal with game three in the best of seven series back in Ste. Anne Sunday at 8:00 p.m.
