OWEN SOUND, Ont. - JP Anderson stopped 28-of-29 shots as the Sarnia Sting defeated the host Owen Sound Attack 2-1 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Anderson's performance included stopping all 21 shots he faced in the final two periods and earned him the game's first star.

Connor Murphy's power-play goal at 11:19 of the second period stood up as the game winner for the Sting (1-2-1) while Charles Sarault scored his club's other goal shorthanded.

Keevin Cutting scored the lone goal for the Attack (3-1-1).

Despite the loss, Brandon Hope picked up the game's second star after stopping 40-of-42 shots for Owen Sound.

The Sting went 1-for-4 on the power play while the Attack failed to score on four chances with the man advantage.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
