The Maple Ridge Burrards had a convincing 12-8 win over the Nanaimo Timbermen on Sunday, and need to get on a roll if they are going to make the playoffs in the Western Lacrosse Association.

Ben McIntosh had four goals and was the game’s first star, and newcomer Dan Taylor led the scoring with two goals and five points. That gives him the team scoring lead, with 31 points in eight games.

It was points night, as Connor Goodwin had four assists, and Mike Mallory a goal and three assists.

Tyler Codron Jarret Davis and Zack Porter each had a goal and an assist and Kevin Reid and Andrew Murphy both scored.

In the net, backup goaltender Carson Michaud had 31 saves on 39 shots.

The Burrards play in Coquitlam on Saturday, and their next home game will be Tuesday, July 7 at 7:45 p.m. at Planet Ice against the Langley Thunder.

These are both key games, against teams with losing 4-5 records. Ridge will have to catch them both and improve on their own 3-7 record in order to claim the fourth and final playoff spot.
