Cornwall - Mar. 10, 2011 - The Colts' offensive depth up front paid dividends for the team during their playoff debut on Thursday night.

Drew Henry got the Colts on the scoreboard and Kyle Baun and Kevin Cole scored two goals each as the Colts defeated the Kanata Stallions 5-2 at the Cornwall Civic Complex in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series.

The final score masked an extremely competitive game that saw the two teams deadlocked at 2-2 heading into the third period.

A powerplay goal by Baun four minutes into the final frame swung the momentum in the Colts favour, and Cole added a pair of goals soon after to put the game on ice for the home team.

Kyle Rankin and Phillip Nasca scored for the Stallions, who got a strong performance from their goaltender Scott Shackell. The veteran goalie turned aside 38 shots in the losing effort.

Meanwhile, the Colts also got a strong performance from Mark Borkowski in his debut with the team. The Colts had picked up Borkowski from Cumberland at the trade deadline, however the veteran forward had been sidelined due to an injury. Borkowski had an assist for the Colts in the win.

The two teams will resume the series Friday night in Kanata, with Game 3 taking place Sunday night at the Cornwall Civic Complex (7 p.m.).
