The Canada Day long weekend was not kind to the Burnaby Jr. Lakers getting outscored 27-10 in two games.
On Sunday, the first-place Coquitlam Adanacs defeated the Lakers 15-6 at Bill Copeland Arena. The final score was actually closer than reality since the A’s led 12-2 and held a 43-19 shot advantage after two periods. In the third, Burnaby managed to outshoot Coquitlam 17-7 with Wade Galbraith scoring the Lakers’ final three goals on the powerplay.
Peyton Lupul, Bailey Matthew and Josh Simons also scored for Burnaby.
The previous night in Victoria, the Shamrocks beat the Lakers 12-4. James Baker, Jaeden Gastaldo, Connor Buick and Colton Dow got the Burnaby goals.
The Lakers are last in the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League with a (3-16-0) record and complete the regular season with a game tonight (Friday) in Port Coquitlam and at home against New Westminster on Sunday (7 p.m.).
