Spirit fall in T.O. on last-second goal

The Toronto's St. Michael's Majors stole a victory from the Saginaw Spirit in Toronto Sunday afternoon.

Cory Vitarelli's goal with 1.1 seconds left won it for Toronto, 5-4. Justin Donati tallied a hat trick for the Majors.

The Spirit had overcome an early Toronto lead to take a two-goal advantage before Vitarelli's game-winner.

Tom Pyatt scored twice for Saginaw and Vaclav Meidl (pictured) and Patrick Asselin added singles. Meidl's goal was his first with Saginaw since being traded from the Plymouth Whalers on Jan. 10.

Ryan Daniels suffered the loss, but finished with 35 saves.

The Spirit return home to face the first-place Whalers on Thursday.
