The Burrards and Shamrocks resume hostilities at Planet Ice tonight at 6:30 p.m.

The Maple Ridge Burrards lost the opening game of their best-of-seven WLA playoff series against the Victoria Shamrocks 13-9 on Monday night.

The league champions from Victoria jumped out to a 5-1 lead early in the game, but by the end of the first period the Burrards had tied it 5-5.

Then in the second period Victoria scored five more, three coming on the power play, and the Burrards lost the pace. They trailed 10-7 after two.

Victoria was led by Cory Conway, the game’s first star with an eye-popping 10 points, on two goals and eight assists.

Dan Taylor led the Burrards in scoring with a goal and four assists, while three players had four points: Jarret Davis and Riley Loewen both had two goals and two assists, and Mike Mallory had a goal and three assists.

Other scorers were Ben McIntosh with a goal and three points, and Coady Adamson and Andrew Murphy each had a goal.

Coach Chris Gill told Victoria media that the Shamrocks enjoyed favourable reffing, upset after one of his players had his helmet ripped off and was punched in the head. It resulted in a double minor, but should have been a major, said Gill.
