The Spits beat the Sting 3-1 in Sarnia Sunday night to win their best-of-7 opening round series in six games.

Goaltender Matt Onuska made 25 saves and Wyatt Johnston's goal late in the first period stood up as the game-winner.

Forward Jacob Maillet had two helpers in the win.

Windsor outshot Sarnia 32-26.

It's still unknown who the Spits will play in the second round.
