The Southern Shore Breakers scored three unanswered goals in the second half of the game and came away with a 5-2 win over the CBR Renegades Saturday night in Conception Bay South in the opening game of their best-of-seven St. John’s Junior Hockey League semifinal.
For the Renegades, it was their second playoff games in as many nights as they had downed the Trinity-Placentia Flyers 8-3 Friday at the C.B.S. Arena in the fifth and deciding game of their quarter-final series.
The other semifinal, between the first-place Mount Pearl Blades and CBN Stars, gets underway Sunday evening (7:15 p.m.) at the Glacier in Mount Pearl.
The semifinal matchups all follow the form set in the regular-season standings, which saw the Blades finish in top spot, followed by CBR, Southern Shore and CBN to round out the top four.
