KITCHENER, Ont. - The Kitchener Rangers dumped on the top-ranked major junior club in Canada by beating the Windsor Spitfires 4-3.

The Rangers, who host the Sarnia Sting on Friday in their final game before Christmas, ended a six-game losing streak.

The Spitfires were 12-0 at their sad, old barn.

Since opening their new 6,600-capacity rink a week ago, they've lost twice in five home games.

The Rangers entered Thursday's game in 10th and last place in a Western Conference dominated by Windsor. Kitchener (14-6-1-1) is now tied for eighth with Erie and Sault Ste. Marie.
