MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Jordan Mayer's scored little more than a minute into overtime to lift the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors to a 2-1 victory over the Owen Sound Attack in Ontario Hockey League action Sunday afternoon.
Mayer, an 18-year-old forward from Kingston, beat Owen Sound netminder Jordan Binnington with a quick, high shot from the edge of the crease to extend the Majors' (31-8-5) current unbeaten streak to seven games. Kelly Geoffrey had scored in regulation for Mississauga.
The Attack tied the game 1-1 midway through the second frame with Garrett Wilson notching his 26th of the season while Owen Sound (20-21-6) enjoyed a two-man advantage.
"You'd prefer having a higher scoring game, particularly going into the third period, because it would give you a little more security," said Mayer. "But our system is defence first as the way to win games so we'll take the two points."
It was the fourth game in a row in which Mississauga has allowed just one goal. The Majors have allowed the fewest goals of any team in the OHL this season, giving up 103 in 44 games.
Geoffrey put the Majors ahead 1-0 with his seventh goal of the season late in the first period.
Binnington was a standout for the Attack, stopping 41 of 43 shots. Mississauga goalie Chris Carrozzi, who leads the league with a 2.08 goals-against average, made 27 saves.
