The Carillon Senior Hockey League final is now a best-of-five series.

Marc Sabourin scored twice and Marshall Cox made 32 saves as the Red River Wild defeated the Ste. Anne Aces 3-0 Sunday afternoon in St Jean.

The best-of-seven final is now tied at a game a piece.

"The guys played really, really strong in front of me," said Cox. "They kept the other team to the outside and that's a tough thing to do because they're a really quality squad on that other team and they got lots of skill. So hats off to all the guys in front of me because they were awesome this afternoon."

Clint Lucier had the other Red River goal.

Ste. Anne netminder Joey Fontaine faced 27 shots.

"We had our chances for sure," said Aces forward Miguel Rondeau. "Sometimes that's how it goes. Felt like we had pretty good chances. We controlled the play for a good portion of the game. We got a couple of bad bounces and they capitalized on their chances. If we get one early it's a different game. Sometimes you run into a hot goalie or some bad bounces."

The defending champions edged the Wild 3-2 in Ste. Anne in the series opener last Thursday night.

They dropped the puck for game one less than 24 hours after Red River downed the Springfield 98's 4-1 in the deciding seventh game of their semifinal.

"I'm not a big morale victory guy," said Wild coach Mike Gilmore. "W's is what counts but for us, that was one because they've had our number all year. We needed to come out of that rink knowing we could play with them and it showed in our game today."

"We stymied Ste. Anne a little bit defensively and that was our game plan," added Gilmore. "They're run-and-gun and if you give them room they're going to make things happen. We had a tough series with Springfield too. It's not like they were easy on us either. Big time kudos to our guys for answering the bell."

Game three goes Wednesday in Ste. Anne with game four back in St. Jean on Thursday.
