The Orleans Blues are heading to the Major Peewee RepB final after beating the Gloucester Blackhawks 1-0 on Thursday to win their first to four points semi-final series four points to two.

The Blues must now wait until the March Break is over before they can take on the West Carleton Warriors in another first to four points format series for all the marbles.

The hero not only of the hour Wednesday night, but of the last two games of the series was Blues forward Chris Sawyer who was forced to miss the better part of the first half of the season with a perforated kidney.

After losing the opening game of the series 1-0, the Blues bounced back to win Game 2 by a score of 2-1 on Sawyer's game winning goal.

In Wednesday night's game, Sawyer scored at the 4:23 mark of the first period. The lone goal of the contest would turn out to be the series winner.

On the play in question, Sawyer took control of the puck in the neutral zone and then carried it across the blueline before firing a seeing eye shot that managed to sneak between Dana Pollex's legs in the Blackhawks' net.

"I shot it off the heel of my stick and then fell over. I think it got tipped a few times on the way in," said Sawyer in describing the play after the game.

In five playoff games the Blues have allowed just two goals. In the semi-finals, the Blues and Blackhawks got great goaltending from both their backstop tandems as well as a solid defensive effort from their entire teams.
