Burrards get back to hard work in win

Rebound after overtime loss to Langley.

The Maple Ridge Burrards scored four times on the power play and twice into an empty net, one of the latter credited to goalie Frank Scigliano, in an 11-7 victory over the Coquitlam Adanacs on Tuesday at Cam Neely Arena.

Mike Mallory had a goal and six assists to lead the Burrards, who moved into third place in the Western Lacrosse Association, at 7-4-1.

Dan Taylor returned to the Burrards and recorded two goals and three assists. Riley Loewen tallied three times in his return, including two on the power play.

Burrards coach Rob Williams said Taylor and Loewen, who had both been playing for Saskatchewan in the NLL, gave a boost to the team’s power play.

“They are offensive-minded guys, power play guys.”

He also said the team, having lost its previous game on Saturday, 10-8 in overtime to the Thunder in Langley, got back playing a gritty, hard-working style.

In Langley, Williams said the Burrards got outworked by a younger team.

“It showed us we have to work hard to be a good team.”

Against Coquitlam, the Burrards’ defense got back to transitioning the ball well, and even chipped in some offense, Williams added.

Ben McIntosh had a goal and two assists, as well as a team-high 15 shots on net.

Luke Gillespie and Jarrett Davis also scored. Zack Porter put one into an empty net. Scigliano was credited with a goal after a shot rebounded off him and bounced down the floor into an empty net.

Scigliano also made 32 saves in the win.

He stopped 43 shots in the loss to Langley.

Maple Ridge trailed 6-5 after two periods, but outscored Langley 3-2 in the third.

Mallory led the Burrards with three goals and two assists, including the tying marker on the power play with 2:23 left in the third, forcing an extra frame.

Gillespie had two goals and two assists for Ridge, while McIntosh recorded three points.

Owen Barker had a goal and an assist.

• The Burrards play in Victoria on Friday and Nanaimo on Saturday.
