Just 1:33 later, Dachille connected with Hayes for a one-timer to make it a 4-1 game.
Dachille would score three of the next four goals before Mike Giambanco (Massapequa, N.Y.) closed out the first half scoring with 2:48 remaining and the Camels were in complete control with a 9-1 advantage as they headed into the break.
Connecticut College added two quick scores in the third quarter. Chuck Czerkawski (Cohasset, Mass.) found the back of the net with 14:03 remaining. The goal capped a 10-to-0 run and the visitors were in complete control with an 11-1 advantage. Czerkawski won 9-of-10 face-offs and had five ground balls for the winning side.
