The Ridge Meadows junior B Burrards are off to their best start in franchise history, going 3-0 to start their season in the West Coast Junior Lacrosse League.

The junior B Burrards opened their season on the road in Langley on April 20 with a 9-6 win over the Warriors before returning to Planet Ice in Maple Ridge for their home opener last Wednesday, where they bumped off the Burnaby Lakers 11-6.

The Burrards kept their win streak alive this past Sunday as they beat the Port Coquitlam Saints 11-8 on the road.

Leading the team in points so far this season is Scott Hegedus with three goals and four assists, followed by Brenden Kidd with two goals and four assists.

Charlie Sallstrom leads the Burrards in scoring with four goals, while Cody Chernovec has three.

Also scoring for the junior B Burrards are Reid Foeter and Danny Olsen with two, and Branden Markus, Josh Biagioni, Mike Wynes, and Jesse Porter each with one goal apiece.

The Maple Ridge Burrards intermediate A lacrosse team impressed fans at Planet Ice as they beat the visiting Burnaby Lakers 9-7 in their home opener Friday night.

The Burrards did not fare as well Sunday night however, as they fell 10-4 to the Victoria Shamrocks on the road, in what was their first loss of the season.

With a 2-1 record so far this season, the Burrards have had little trouble adjusting in this, their first year in the B.C. Intermediate Lacrosse League.

Leading the way for the Burrards’ offence has been James Baker, with six goals and six assists. Jonathan Kraackman has also found the back of the net six times, while adding a pair of assists for eight points.

Brett Kujala has five goals and six assists for 11 points, while Joe Olson has three goals and seven assists for 10 points.

Just three games into the season, and 10 Burrards have already managed to score goals, including Jesse Gillespie (3), Greg Batt (2), Mitchell MacAulay (2), Riley Glemnitz (1), Brad Dolbec (1), and Matt Olson (1).

The midget A1 Ridge Meadows Burrards won their first game of the regular season Sunday with a 10-7 win over the Delta Islanders.

The midget B1 Burrards are 3-0 after their 7-4 win over Surrey last week. Mitchell Veevers led the offence with four goals, while goalie Mitchell Furness was named team MVP for his 33-save effort.

The bantam A1 Burrards hosted the Delta Islanders Sunday afternoon, routing them 12-2. The bantam A1 Burrards improve to 3-2 this season, and currently sit in third place in the Lower Mainland Minor Lacrosse Association’s bantam A1 league.

The Burrards peewee A1 team beat the Burnaby Lakers by a score of 5-3 on Friday. The team was led by the outstanding goaltending of Matthew Marty, while Kyle Jansson, Caleb Foley, Drew Andre, Matthew Sinclair, and Aidan Murphy each scored for Ridge Meadows. Dylan McCormick, Loclan Munro, Austen Cooke, Murphy, and Jansson each had assists.

In tyke and mini-tyke play, Ayden Lowe and Dylan McMahon of the Punishers were both awarded game MVP honours, as was Trent Meaden of the Jets, Justin Best of the Roadrunners.
