The Maple Ridge Burrards continue to be competitive, but can’t seal down a win.

The Burrards dropped a pair of games last week, leaving them with a 2-12-1 record and an overall .167 winning percentage.

The Burrards fell 11-8 to the Coquitam Adanacs Sunday at Planet Ice, despite outshooting their opposition 38-36.

The game got off to a good start for the Burrards, as Garrett McIntosh notched his second goal of the season just 59 seconds into the contest.

After the Adanacs tied the score 1-1, Maple Ridge’s Aaron Davis put the home squad back in front at the 5:57 mark of the opening frame.

However, that would be the Burrards’ last lead in the game.

Two goals in less than a minute close to the halfway mark of the first saw the Adanacs jump into a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.

Trailing 3-2 going into the middle frame, the Burrards gave up six goals on just 12 shots while mustering four goals, despite peppering Adanacs’ goalie Nick Rose with 19 shots.

The Burrards had no answer against the league’s leader in wins. Rose has eight victories this season for the second place Adanacs, as well as the second best save goals against average at 7.50.

Colton Porter led the Burrards’ attack with a goal and three helpers, while Randy Daly and Jerrett Davis each had a goal and two assists.

Trailing 9-6 heading into the third, the Burrards fell behind by five with little more than nine minutes left in the frame. The home team got a boost with two goals 24 seconds by Patrick O’Meara and Porter with 6:30 minutes left in the game.

However, Rose shut the door the rest of the way.

The loss comes on the heels of the Burrards’ 12-9 loss to the Nanaimo Timbermen  a night earlier on the Island. And once again it was the second period that proved to be the Burrards’ downfall.

The teams were all square at 4-4 heading into the middle stanza, when the Timbermen tallied five goals on 18 shots and opened a  9-7 lead heading into the third.

Jarrett Davis led the Burrards’ attack with four goals and three assists, while Riley Loewen notched four goals and an assist. Brandon Bertoia chipped in with a goal and four assists.

The Burrards next two games are on the road, with stops in Victoria, Friday, July 20,  against the Shamrocks, then in Langley Wednesday, July 25.

• The Burrards wrap-up the season at home July 29 against the New Westminster Salmonbellies. Game time is 6:45 p.m. at Planet Ice.
