BARRIE, Ont. - Ryan Rupert scored his second goal of the game in overtime as the London Knights held on to beat the Barrie Colts 5-4 in Game 6 of the Ontario Hockey League final Saturday night.

The Knights victory ties the series at 3-3, with the deciding game to be played in London on Monday night.

Bo Horvat had a goal and an assist for London, with Brett Welychka and Tommy Hughes also finding the back of the net.

Mitchell Theoret scored twice for Barrie, which entered the third period down 4-0 before scoring four straight goals to force overtime.

Andreas Athanasiou and Erik Bradford also responded for the Colts.

Power play chances were few and far between on Saturday. Barrie finished the night at 1-for-2 while London went 0-for-4

Knights goalie Jake Patterson turned aside 23 pucks on the night.

Mathias Niederberger made 18 saves on 22 shots before being pulled in favour of Alex Fotinos, who stopped all but one of the eight attempts he faced.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
