ERIE - Cedric Ralph scored 1:06 into overtime to give the Guelph Storm a 4-3 win over the Erie Otters on Wednesday night.

It was the Storm's fifth win in a row.

The Storm led 3-1 after 20 minutes but Erie scored once in the second then tied it 3-3 when Maxim Golod scored with 1:45 left in regulation and goaltender Cole Ceci on the bench for the extra attacker.

Isaac Ratcliffe, Dmitri Samorukov and Zach Roberts had the other Storm goals. Anthony Popovich made 27 saves in net.

Samorukov had a goal and two assists despite playing with 10 stitches and a broken nose suffered a night earlier in London.

The Storm hosts the Windsor Spitfires on Friday.
