Former Nelson Junior Leaf Connor McLaughlin tallied seven minutes later when he scored on a deflection to give the Castlegar-based Saints the 2-0 lead.

With five minutes left in the period, Darnell Dyck gave his team a 3-0 cushion when he made good on a breakaway. Jackson Garrett completed the scoring with 30 second left in the game.
