Maynard scored a power-play goal at 5:15 of the second overtime period to give the Huskies a 2-1 win over the UNB Varsity Reds in Game 1 of the best-of-five semifinal series.

UNB, which is coached by Bedeque native Gardiner MacDougall, outshot Saint Mary’s 51-26, but could not solve Huskies goaltender Anthony Peters.

Game 2 is also in Fredericton on Thursday night.
