DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

For the fifth season in a row, the Dubuque Fighting Saints are headed to the postseason.

They did it in fashion, too, scorching the Madison Capitols 8-1 Friday night at the Mystique Community Ice Center in Dubuque.

Seamus Malone has been red hot for the Saints.  He notched a hat trick last Saturday against Cedar Rapids, and tonight scored five points, three goals and two assists, against the Capitols.  He scored a goal in every period.

Robby Jackson, the newly acquired Saint, continued his hot streak as well.  He scored six points last weekend and put up three in Friday's game, including one goal and two assists.  He and Malone joined three other Saints who had multi-point games.

The eight goals tie a club high for the Fighting Saints.  They outshot the Capitols 42-31 in a game that featured points from ten Saints players.

Now that the Fighting Saints have made the playoffs, "pay as we play" tickets are on sale for the 2015 Clark Cup Playoffs.

The Dubuque Fighting Saints look for another win tomorrow night as they host rival Cedar Rapids RoughRiders.  Get your tickets at www.dubuquefightingsaints.com.
