MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Centre Jordan Mayer scored a pair of goals to lead the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors to a 5-1 victory over the Sudbury Wolves Saturday afternoon, extending their win-streak to five games in the Ontario Hockey League.

Mayer scored once in the first period on a goalmouth scramble and got his second - and 17th of the season - on a partial breakaway in the second as the Majors improved to 31-22-1-2.

"I think our recent success is a result of our team play," said Mayer. "We're skating hard, we're finishing our checks and playing a lot tougher. Our team play is what makes us successful individually."

William Wallen, Jared Gomes and Mike Pelech had the other goals for the Majors, who broke open a tight game with two goals late in the third.

Kyle Tarini scored for the Wolves (22-29-2-4), who lost their third in a row.

The Majors had 49 shots at Sudbury goaltender Andrew Loverock. Rookie goalie JP Anderson turned back 20 of 21 shots in the Mississauga net. He faced only three shots in the final period.
