Swedish import William Wallen scored the only goal in the shootout to lift the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors to a 3-2 victory over the Brampton Battalion Friday night in the Ontario Hockey League.

The 18-year-old left winger, who suffered a brain aneurysm one year ago to the day that kept him sidelined for nearly four months, beat Brampton goaltender Patrick Killeen with a shot over the goalie's left shoulder.

"I thought about deking him but I noticed he was deep in his crease so I just decided to shoot," said Wallen, who drew an assist on Casey Cizikas' first-period goal that put the Majors ahead 1-0.

Ryan Lopes had the other goal for the Majors, who improved their record to 3-2-0-0.

Sean Jones scored one goal for the Battalion and drew an assist on a second-period goal by Philip Lane that put Brampton (1-3-0-1) ahead 2-1.

Killeen had a solid game in goal for the Battalion, stopping 40 of 42 shots.

Chris Carrozzi turned back 31 of 33 shots in the Mississauga net.
