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.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
