MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Ethan Werek scored his second goal of the game with just over two minutes remaining in overtime to give the Kingston Frontenacs a come-from-behind 3-2 victory over the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors on Wednesday night in the Ontario Hockey League.

Werek pounced on a rebound in front of the Mississauga net and drove the puck past Majors' goaltender Chris Carrozzi for his 15th goal of the season as the Frontenacs (12-11-2) won their fourth game in a row.

"This is a huge confidence booster for us, coming in here and beating the top team in the East," said Werek, who tied the game 2-2 when he scored with less than nine minutes to play in the third period.

"We didn't put back-to-back wins together all last year so this is big for us. We didn't play close to a complete game but we got the win."

The Majors (17-4-2) held a 2-0 lead after the second period on goals by Devante Smith-Pelly and William Wallen.

The Frontenacs mounted their comeback in the third when Derek Froats scored early in the third to narrow Mississauga's lead to 2-1.

Tyler Beskorowany turned in a stellar performance in the Kingston net, stopping 38 of 40 shots. Carrozzi made 26 saves in the Mississauga net.
