Despite toiling with the last place Lac du Bonnet Blues this season, Brent Wold was named the Most Valuable Player in the Carillon Senior Hockey League this year.

Wold showed just how valuable he is to the Blues by scoring the winning goal in double overtime Thursday night in St. Malo as the Blues edged the Warriors 5-4 in the opening game of the CSHL playoffs.

Lac du Bonnet and St. Malo are squaring off in a best-of-three preliminary series to determine the final combatant in the semi-finals as the winner of the series will face the first place Grunthal Red Wings.

Wold scored the winner, his second of the game, five minutes into the second overtime period. It was a see-saw affair as Lac du Bonnet led 2-1 after the first and the Warriors took a 4-3 lead into the final 40 minutes.

Wold and Roger Tagooma each had two goals and an assist for the Blues. St. Malo goals came from Cedric Gauthier, Skyler Eastman, Jared Magne and Tyler Kemball.

Incredibly, Julian Guimond made 68 saves in net for the Blues in his 85 minutes of work as the Warriors outshot the Blues 72-44.

Game two in the series will be played Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Lac du Bonnet. If the Warriors prolong the series, the deciding game will be played Sunday at 6:00 p.m. at St. Malo.

Meanwhile, the semi-final series between the second place Ste. Anne Aces, the two-defending champions, and the third place Red River Wild, will get underway Feb. 24 at Ste. Anne.
