ANCHORAGE - A four-goal game by senior Brett Cameron led the Alaska Anchorage Seawolves to a 4-4 overtime tie with the Bemidji State Beavers in a Western Collegiate Hockey Association game at the Sullivan Arena on Saturday to wrap up the 2014 calendar year.

Cameron - who became the first Seawolf to score four tallies since David Vallieres in 1995 - spearheaded UAA's efforts as the Seawolves (5-7-4, 2-6-2 WCHA) collected two points on the weekend after tying the Beavers (4-10-2, 2-6-2 WCHA) 3-3 on Friday.

A local of Spruce Grove, Alberta, Cameron gave the Seawolves a 3-1 lead early in the second period with his first collegiate hat trick and UAA's first hat trick since teammate Scott Allen on Nov. 16, 2013 at Bemidji State. The Seawolves then allowed two back-to-back power-play strikes by BSU in the second before Cameron completed his record night with a power-play goal, just 1:30 into the third.

The Beaver's game-tying goal came from Charlie O'Connor with 2:03 left in regulation to send the game into extra minutes for the second consecutive night. The last time UAA posted two ties over a weekend was against Colorado College, Feb. 1-2, 2013.

Cameron's first strike came shorthanded after he stole the puck from BSU's Brendan Harms for a breakaway on Andrew Walsh, beating the netminder glove-side at 8:57. The lead would be short lived, as the Beavers responded 2:18 later with a power-play strike by Leo Fitzgerald - his first collegiate goal - with just nine seconds left in the man advantage.

Cameron's second tally came courtesy of freshman Jarrett Brown and Allen with 1:29 left in the first. Cameron caught Walsh sliding to his left and buried a backhander in the open net. Three and half minutes of game time later, the hat trick was in the bag after freshman Matt Anholt found him with a centering pass at 2:30 of the second.

Penalties in the second were costly for the Seawolves as the Beavers struck at 9:08 and 11:10 on man advantage opportunities. Overall, BSU was 3-for-7 on the power play, while UAA went 1-for-2 - the Seawolves' first PPG since Nov. 8 at Michigan Tech.

Picking up 28 saves in net for the Seawolves was freshman Olivier Mantha (4-5-3), while Walsh made 23 stops. BSU out shot UAA, 32-27.

The Seawolves will have three weekends off before heading to Alabama Huntsville, Jan. 2-3.
