WINDSOR, Ont. - Ben O'Quinn scored the winner with 49 seconds left in regulation as the Sarnia Sting, with the second-worst record in the Ontario Hockey League, shocked the defending Memorial Cup champion Windsor Spitfires 6-5 on Sunday afternoon.

The Sting lead 4-2 heading into the third period after they exploded for four goals, including three on the power play, in the second period on Zac MacQueen's two goals and singles by Brett Ritchie and Kyle Neuber.

Taylor Hall, Greg Nemisz and Eric Wellwood scored for the Spitfires with Tyler Peters replying for the Sting in the third to set the stage for O'Quinn's last minute heroics.

Adam Henrique and Ryan Baldwin, with his first of the season, had Windsor's other goals.

The Spitfires were without the services of Ryan Ellis, the first round pick of the Nashville Predators last summer, due to a wrist injury. Ellis was a late scratch and was listed as day-to-day after receiving a slash from Zac Rinaldo of the London Knights in a game last Thursday.
