The Coquitlam Adanacs are in sole possession of last place in the Western Lacrosse Association standings after an 11-9 loss to the Langley Thunder, Wednesday at the Langley Events Centre.
Langley’s victory was its third of the season and put them two points clear of Coquitlam, which has just two wins.
The Adanacs led 5-4 at the end of the first period, then extended that to 7-4 after goals by Matt Delmonico and Parker Kump early in the second period.
The Thunder then responded with four straight goals to go up 8-7. Chase McIntyre got Coquitlam back on even terms with less than three minutes left in the frame, but Langley went back in front for good when Nathan McKeegan and Brad McCulley scored before the break.
McCulley, completing his hat trick, and Coquitlam’s John Hofseth exchanged goals in the third period.
Carter Dickson led Coquitlam’s offence, with a goal and three assists. McIntyre and Delmonico each scored a pair of goals and added an assist.
Keeper Andrew Gallant faced 54 shots in the Adanacs’ net, while his teammates fired 43 at Langley netminders Jake Sundar and Steve Fryer.
Coquitlam will make up the two games it has in hand on the Thunder this weekend, when they host the New Westminster Salmonbellies on Saturday, 7 p.m., at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex, then travel to Nanaimo for a game against the Timbermen on Sunday. Langley’s next game isn’t until Wednesday when they host the Victoria Shamrocks.
