SARNIA – They likely deserved a better fate, but the end result was another loss for the Guelph Storm Saturday night in Sarnia, the team's sixth straight.

The Sarnia Sting tied the game with 46 seconds left in regulation and the goalie on the bench for the extra attacker, then won it 22 seconds into overtime, coming away with a 3-2 victory.

Guelph started overtime with three forwards on the ice. Sarnia's Ethan Wainwright stole the puck but was stopped by Storm netminder Damian Slavik on the breakaway, but Wainwright stuck with the play, stealing the puck off Max Namestinikov behind the Storm net before skating out front and burying the game winning goal.

Charlie Paquette had given Guelph the 2-1 lead at 7:21 of the third period. Ryan McGuire, Guelph's best forward on the night, had Guelph's other goal.

Wainwright, Ryan Brown and Marko Sikic had the Sarnia goals.

Guelph went 0-for-4 on the power play and is now 0-for-26 with the man advantage over its last six games.

They play in Kitchener Tuesday and Peterborough Thursday before hosting Erie on Friday.
