The Maple Ridge Burrards got their third straight win on Tuesday night at Cam Neely Arena, blasting the New Westminster Salmonbellies 11-5.
The score was 3-1 after the first period thanks in large part to a pair of goals by Curtis “Superman” Dickson. After they second period the Burrards were up 7-2, before cruising to a win.
Dickson finished up with three goals and four points, and newly acquired NLL scoring champ Dane Dobbie had two of each for a four-point effort of his own.
Mentioning more Burrard star power, Wes Berg had two goals and an assist, and Dan Taylor had a goal and three points.
With that win, the Burrards improve to a league best 9-5, and keep hold of first place in the Western Lacrosse Association.
