WINDSOR, Ont. - Mickey Renaud and Josh Bailey had third-period goals to lead the Windsor Spitfires to a 3-1 win over the Sarnia Sting on Thursday night in the Ontario Hockey League.

The victory was the Spits' second in two games while the Sting lost for the second time in three games this season.

Second-year centre Adam Henrique opened the scoring in the game for the Spitfires when he deflected a wrist shot from the point by defenceman Elgin Reid past the outstretched glove hand of Sting rookie netminder Tomi Karhunen at 4:36 of the first period. Windsor held onto the lead until Sting superstar Stephen Stamkos replied for Sarnia midway through the second period.

Renaud broke the deadlock 32 seconds into the third period when he scored on a two-man advantage. Josh Bailey provided Windsor with an insurance goal with 7:03 left in the game. Bailey's goal was the only even strength goal of the game.

Andrew Engelage faced 31 shots while picking up Windsor's second consecutive victory while Karhunen faced 49 shots at the other end.
