The Beacons offense was limited in the second to just six shots, while the Camels managed 13, with Burke making 12 stops.
In the final frame, the Camels pushed it to a 5-0 affair scoring two goals in the first 1:07. They would then get their sixth goal on the power-play at the 3:49 mark, before notching their final marker at 13:37.
