WINDSOR, Ont. - Greg Nemisz had a goal and two assists as the upstart Windsor Spitfires beat the Guelph Storm 5-2 Tuesday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Josh Bailey and Eric Wellwood each added a goal and an assist for the Spitfires. Wellwood's first goal of the season with just over five minutes left in the second period gave the Spitfires their first lead of the game and proved to be the winner.

Bradley Snetsinger and Jordan Nolan had Windsor's other goals.

Anthony Nigro lead the Storm with a goal and an assist and Jamie Arniel scored the other Storm goal.

Andrew Engelage backstopped the Spitfires to victory while Thomas McCollum took the loss in goal for the Storm.

The victory was the Spitfires' fifth in five games at the Windsor Arena this season. That record is in stark contrast to last season's eight home ice wins, the lowest in franchise history.

The game also marked the regular season debut for the Spits of third-year defenceman Blake Parlett following an elbow injury suffered during the pre-season. Parlett played a regular shift alongside rookie Michal Jordan and did not look out of place.

Aaron Snow and Andrew Yogan were healthy scratches for the Spitfires.

The teams play a return match in Guelph on Friday.
