The Maple Ridge Burrards defeated the Nanaimo Timbermen for the second straight game on Tuesday and moved into second place.

The Burrards downed the Timbermen 8-7 in overtime Saturday in Nanaimo, then 10-4 Tuesday at Planet Ice in Maple Ridge.

The Burrards outscored the Timbermen 4-0 in the first and third periods Tuesday, and outshot them 50-42 overall.

The Burrards are now second in the Western Lacrosse Association, at 9-5-1 and 19 points, three behind the New Westminster Salmonbellies.

Mike Mallory led Ridge with three goals and three assists. He is now third in league scoring with 59 points in 15 games.

Dan Taylor and Ben McIntosh both had two goals and two assists. Riley Loewen added two goals and an assist. Connor Goodwin also scored, while Frank Scigliano made 38 saves for the win.

The Burrards are second in the league in goals against, allowing just eight a game on average.

“Our defense is always strong, and we have the best stopper in the league, in my opinion,” said Burrards head coach Rob Williams.

Scigliano is 6’4’’ and 270 pounds.

“But he’s an agile 270,” Williams added. “He plays his angles well and is patient. He doesn’t bite on a lot of stuff.”

Williams also praised the leadership of players like Mallory, Taylor and McIntosh, as well as Loewen and Jarrett Davis.

“We’ve got a good group of guys.”
