Admirals Draw First Blood

The Admirals opened the playoffs Wednesday night at the LIBRO Centre with a 5-3 win over Mooretown.

Caleb Paquette scored twice to power the Admirals as he opened the scoring five minutes into the first period, and also had the last goal almost eight minutes into the third.

Josh Talerico, Dean Deluca and Reid Stieler also scored for Amherstburg.

The Admirals lead 3-0 mid-way through the middle period, before the visiting Flags reeled off three straight to tie things at three, after 40 minutes.

Brock Perry, Garrett Miller, and Cade Robinson had the Mooretown goals.

Also, Lakeshore dropped the Sharks 4-3 in Wheatley to grab a 2-0 lead in that series.
