A second straight overtime loss has the Maple Ridge Burrards at the bottom of the Western Lacrosse Association standings.

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

By the midpoint of the game, the Burrards were down 7-2, and Victoria’s power play had struck three times. But they battled back, tied the game at 8-8, and sent it into overtime.

In their last two games the Burrards have taken the best teams in the league to extra time, as both Victoria and the New Westminister Salmonbellies are 6-2. But the two losses, however close, have dropped them to 2-6 on the season, with 10 games left.

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.
