The Yarmouth Mariners are going to the Eastlink South Division final.

Reilly Mayne tipped in a Ben Roode point-shot a minute and a half into overtime, as the Mariners beat the Pictou County Crushers 5-4 in Game 4 Thursday night in New Glasgow.

The Mariners swept the series four straight.

Mayne also had two assists, Jerome Gilbert scored twice, and Yarmouth native Jared Pitman scored his first MHL playoff goal.

The Mariners led 4-3 in the third, before the Crushers tied it with the goaltender out.

Keegan Warren made 34 saves to pick up his first win of the playoffs.

Nathan Kelly and Tyler Lee didn’t play, they remain day-to-day with injury.

Yarmouth will face either Truro or Valley in the next round, the Bearcats lead that series 2-1.

Also in the MHL last night, Campbellton beat Summerside 4-1 to take a 2-1 lead in their series.
