The Maple Ridge Burrards trailed the Burnaby Lakers 6-2 at the midpoint of Tuesday night’s game at Bill Copeland Arena, but came back to win 9-6, keeping their playoff hopes very much alive.

The Burrards finish the season 9-9, and in one of the four playoff berths in the Western Lacrosse Association.

They could still be knocked out, but the Langley Thunder, who are in fifth place at 9-8, would have to win their remaining game against the first-place Victoria Shamrocks (13-4) on Friday.

The Burrards own the tiebreaker, having beaten Langley in two out of three games on the season series.

Ben McIntosh finished his regular season in the league lead for goals with 35, after having scored three against the Lakers. Two  Shamrocks have a shot at catching him – both Jesse King and Rhys Duch are sitting on 31 goals with a game to play.

Mike Mallory had four assists for Ridge, Coady Adamson two goals and an assist and Connor Goodwin a goal and two assists. Riley Loewen with two and Andrew Murphy  also scored.

Carson Michaud made 32 saves on 37 shots. He went into the season as backup to Frankie Scigliano but played in 13 games and put up a record of 6-3 in his starts.

It has been two different seasons for the Burrards, as they were in the league basement at 2-7 at the midpoint of the year, and then went 7-2 in the second half.
