The Carillon Senior Hockey League wrapped up their regular season on the weekend, and it was the Grunthal Red Wings that survived a season-long battle with the Ste. Anne Aces to finish first overall in the league.

Grunthal (16-2-2-0) finished just a single point ahead of the two-time defending champion Aces (16-3-1-1).

The Red Wings clinched first with a 4-0 victory over the Lac du Bonnet Blues on Friday. In other results from the final weekend of the regular season, Red River doubled St. Malo 6-3 on Friday and then edged Grunthal 3-2 on Saturday, while Ste. Anne defeated Lac du Bonnet 7-3.

In the Aces win over the Blues, Keith Grondin had two assists as he won the CSHL scoring title with 37 points in only 14 games, including a league 19 goals, finishing two points ahead of teammate Vaughn Dupre. Dupre, who led the league in scoring most of the season, did not play in Saturday's game. Ste. Anne's Steph Pattyn and Tanner Harms tied for third with 34 points.

Grunthal, Ste. Anne and third place Red River all advance to the CSHL semis. Meanwhile, the bottom two teams, St. Malo and Lac du Bonnet, will square off in a best-of-three play-in series to determine the final semi-final combatant. Game one of that series will be played Thursday at 8:00 p.m. at St. Malo.
