SUDBURY, Ont. - Joseph Cramarossa scored two goals in the third period to lift the Mississauga St. Michaels Majors over the Sudbury Wolves 4-3 on Friday in the Ontario Hockey League.

Cramarossa tied the game while on the power play via a deflection at the 6:52 mark, then scored the game-winner shorthanded while on a breakaway.

Wovles goalie Johan Mattsson caught Cramarossa's shot under his pads, but the puck slid into his net.

Derek Schoenmakers and David Corrente had the other goals for the Majors (9-2-1), while Dylan DeMelo and Riley Brace added two assists apiece.

Majors goalie Spencer Martin finished with 33 saves on 36 shots.

Wolves centre Kristoff Kontos led Sudbury's offece with a pair of goals, while Andrey Kuchin added a goal and an assist for Sudbury (3-5-1).

The Wolves opened the scoring as Kuchin drove into the zone, faked a shot, and finished on a wraparound at the 4:29 mark of the first.

The Majors tied the game just over two minutes later, as a weak Corrente wrister from the point beat Mattsson.

The Wolves took a 2-1 lead when Kontos swung his stick to tap in a loose puck on the doorstep at 13:24 in the first.

The Majors tied the game at 6:02 of the second when Schoenmakers fired what seemed to be a harmless wrist shot as he entered the zone.

The Wolves again took the lead at the 12:06 mark of the second, as Kuchin fed Kontos a perfect one-time opportunity.

Martin stopped 24 shots in the loss.

The Wolves went 1-for-5 on the power play, while the Majors were 1-for-4 with the man advantage.
