LONDON — The Guelph Storm's struggles continued at Budweiser Gardens on Sunday.

The London Knights' Jonathan Gruden scored what proved to be the winning goal early in the second period as the Knights downed the Storm 4-2 on Sunday afternoon.

It was Guelph's 10th straight loss.


Gruden's goal made it 3-1 at the time. The Storm's Keegan Stevenson made it 3-2 at 7:58 of the third period but that was as close as the Storm got. An empty-netter by Alec Regula with 1:03 left in the third iced the victory.

Cam Hillis had Guelph's other goal and Nico Daws made 33 saves in the Storm net.

The loss leaves Guelph in seventh place in the Western Conference, one point ahead of the Erie Otters and four points ahead of ninth-place Sault Ste. Marie.

Guelph is on the road this week with games in North Bay Thursday and Sudbury on Friday. Next home game is Wednesday, Feb. 5, when the Erie Otters visit.
