Minutes later, Burnet crossed a long pass on the head of the oncoming right forward Sam Klair who completed the scoring.

Turn-Key Controls Ogopogos clipped Cantinas 1-0 in other play.
Tim Clarke made a miraculous early save for the Pogos before Roland Riedstra took a pass from Mark Wasyluk, deked the keeper but had his shot blocked by a defender.
The Pogos tweaked their lineup for the final half. Riedstra took a shot that just grazed the top bar after being moved to striker.
The rush then turned and Clarke jumped and pushed the ball to the side for a spectacular save.
After a speedy run up the right flank, Rick Danyluk crossed a beauty right to Riedstra’s head which then deflected off the top of the crossbar back into play to a waiting Nolan Clark, whose shot through a defender was tapped in for insurance.
Turn-Key is in the B final Sunday, Oct. 4 in Penticton.
