GUELPH, Ont. - Matt Finn scored twice, including the winner 23 seconds into overtime, as the Guelph Storm edged the visiting Peterborough Petes 7-6 on Sunday afternoon in Ontario Hockey League action.

Justin Auger had a goal and an assist, Patrick Waitling scored a single goal and Zac Leslie chipped in with four assists to round out Guelph's offence.

Francis Menard scored twice for the Petes (2-5-3) and Zach Lorentz had a goal and an assist.

Eric Cornel, Greg Betzold and Stephen Nosad also scored for Peterborough.

Garret Sparks started in goal for the Storm, but was pulled in the second period after allowing five goals on 16 shots.

Jason DaSilva stopped 22-of-23 shots in relief and earned the win for Guelph while Michael Giugovaz made 38 saves in a losing effort for Peterborough.

Both clubs went 3-for-9 on the power play.

I was surprised. I knew I got it. It's tough. You never know how hard it is until it registers on the gun. I got pretty much all I could into and you just hope for the best.
