The St. Malo Warriors began their playoffs this weekend at OCN as they gained a split with the Storm in their opening series of the Keystone Junior Hockey League playoffs.

It was mission accomplished of sorts for the Warriors, who came into the playoffs as the sixth seed overall following their third place finish in the South Division standings with a 16-13-5 record. OCN is seeded third overall after finishing first in the North Division with a 25-6-3 record.

OCN won the opening game of the series 6-5 Saturday night but the Warriors bounced back with a 5-3 triumph Sunday afternoon to make that mararthon bus ride back home that much more palatable.

Shaquille Houle was the hero for the Warriors in Sunday's game two victory as he scored three goals and set up a fourth. David  Allaire made 30 saves in net for the Warriors.

In Saturday's opener, Alex Murray had three goals and an assist in a losing cause for the Warriors, with all three goals set up by Haden Hildebrand.

The best-of-five series now shifts back to St. Malo for games three and four, which will be played Friday at 8:00 p.m. and then Satruday at 7:30 p.m. at the St. Malo Arena.

Should a fifth and deciding game be required, it will be played this Sunday at OCN, with the time still to be determined.
