Sr. Adanacs bounce Burrards

Bob Salt's Coquitlam Adanacs had too much pepper Saturday for the Maple Ridge Burrards.

Bob Salt's Coquitlam Adanacs had too much pepper Saturday for the Maple Ridge Burrards.

Dane Dobbie and Cory Conway racked up nine and eight points respectively as the Salt-coached Adanacs blitzed the Burrards 14-11 in Coquitlam's Western Lacrosse Association regular-season home opener at Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex.

The result and subsequent 9-7 Ridge win Sunday over New West left the A's and the Burrards even with 2-1 records.

The Adanacs jumped to a 4-1 lead midway through the first period and had the game well in hand before the Burrards scored twice late to make the score respectable.

Dobbie finished with four goals and five assists, while Conway netted three markers and added five helpers. Brothers Peter and Daryl Veltman and three and two goals respectively, with Coquitlam's own Tim Campeau and Jason Jones bagging a tally apiece.

Brandon Atherton stopped 29 shots in the A's cage. PoCo product Curtis Dickson paced the Burrards with five goals and two assists.

Next, the Adanacs visit the Victoria Shamrocks on Friday before returning home Saturday to face the Burnaby Lakers, 8 p.m.


Coquitlam Jr. Adanacs boosted their record to a perfect 9-0 by sweeping a double dip with the rival PoCo Saints, sailing to a 10-4 triumph Friday in a B.C. Jr. 'A' lacrosse league contest at PoCo Rec Centre.

Casey Jackson fired in a natural hattrick before the game was five minutes old to give the Jr. A's an early cushion and Coquitlam scored three more times before the first period expired to take a commanding 6-0 margin into the second frame. Matt Delmonico notched three goals for the Saints, who dropped to 0-8.
