The Burrards dropped a 10-9 OT thriller to the Victoria Shamrocks on Sunday at Planet Ice.

Three players had four points for the Burrards: Ben McIntosh and Jarret Davis each had two goals and two assists, while Dan Taylor had a goal and three assists.

Connor Goodwin had two goals and a helper, and this year’s first-round pick is second on the team in scoring, with 10 goals and 21 points.

Tom Johnson had a goal and three points, and Coady Adamson also scored.

• Their next home game will be Sunday at 6:45 p.m. at Planet Ice, when they host Nanaimo.
