MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Stuart Percy and Trevor Carrick each scored a goal and an assist to lead the Mississauga Steelheads to their fourth win in a row, 4-1 over the Peterborough Petes in OHL action Friday.

Dylan Smoskowitz scored on a 5-on-3 power play while Andrew Goldberg opened the scoring for the Steelheads (10-4-0-1), winners of eight of their last 10.

Goldberg opened the scoring at the 10 minute mark of the opening period, and Percy made it 2-0 at 19:14 of the period.

Derek Mathers scored for Peterborough (4-9-2-1) with 13 seconds left in the third period.

Goaltender Spencer Martin made 30 saves to earn his ninth straight victory. Martin, one of the top-rated goalies eligible for the 2013 NHL draft, leads the OHL in goals against average (1.90) and save percentage (.944).

Andrew D'Agostini turned aside 31 shots for the Petes, who fell to last place in the OHL's Eastern Conference.

The Steelheads went 1-for-4 on the power play while the Petes finished 0-for-2.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
