WINDSOR, Ont. - Reid Boucher scored the shootout winner as the Sarnia Sting defeated the Windsor Spitfires 3-2 in Ontario Hockey League action Monday.

Boucher, who also scored a second-period power-play goal, was the only one of 12 shooters to score.

Nickolas Latta had the other goal for the Sting (3-3-1) while Derek Schoenmakers and Ben Johnson replied for the Spitfires (3-3-2)

After a scoreless first period, Schoenmakers opened the scoring in the game early in the second frame before Latta replied for the Sting just 24 seconds later. Boucher's power-play marker with 1:18 remaining in the second period game the Sting a 2-1 lead after 40 minutes of play.

Johnson scored for the Spitfires 19 seconds into the third period, ultimately sending the game to overtime.

The victory was the Sting's third win in three road games this season while the loss extended the Spitfires' winless streak to three games.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
