The St. Malo Warriors have advanced to the Keystone Junior Hockey League finals.

St. Malo punched their ticket to the finals with a massive 3-2 victory over the Selkirk Fishermen Sunday night at Selkirk in the seventh and deciding game of the semi-finals.

In what was a monumental upset, the Fishermen posted the best overall record in the KJHL this season with a 28-3-3 record while the Warriors were sixth overall at 16-13-5.

In Sunday's game seven clincher, Maxime Collette scored the winning goal five minutes into the third period. Tyrel Buckert and Alex Murray had first period markers for the Warriors. David Allaire made 26 saves in net for the Warriors.

The Warriors jumped out to a 3-1 lead in the series, but the Fishermen battled back to tie it winning the next two games by scores of 5-3 and then 4-1 Saturday night at St. Malo to force game seven.

Peguis, who swept the Lundar Falcons four straight in the semis, had the second best record in the league this year at 27-6-1. Dates for the championship series have not yet been finalized.

The two teams met twice during the regular season, with Peguis winning both games as they beat the Warriors 5-1 and 5-2.
