Burrards facing sweep from Mann Cup

Unless the Maple Ridge Burrards can find some scoring, they’ll have travelled a long way to lose a short series.

The Burrards lost 11-6 to the Peterborough Lakers in Monday’s third game of their best-of-seven Mann Cup final in Peterborough. Another loss in tomorrow’s fourth game would send the Burrards home and crown the host Lakers national senior lacrosse champions for the second year in a row.

Port Coquitlam’s Curtis Dickson gave the Burrard’s an early 1-0 lead before the game was five minutes old. But 1:14 later, Peterborough’s Zach Currier tied it and less than two minutes after that the Lakers took the lead.

Riley Loewen’s goal, set up by Dickson and Coquitlam’s Ben McIntosh, tied it until a power play goal by Peterborough’s Cory Vitarelli with a little less than five minutes to go in the first frame put the Lakers in front again, this time for good.

Peterborough outscored Maple Ridge 3-2 again in the second period and 5-2 in the third.

Dickson finished the game with four points, and McIntosh chipped in three.

Coquitlam’s Frank Scigliano faced 46 shots in the Burrards’ net while his teammates fired 29 at Peterborough keeper Evan Kirk.
