Lakers provide a little breathing room in WLA standings

Here's how tightly packed the standings are in the Western Lacrosse Association. Going in to Saturday night's game between the Burnaby Lakers and Coquitlam Adanacs, a Coquitlam win would have created a four-way tie for third place, meaning you'd have to go to an elaborate series of tiebreakers to determine who held the final two playoff spots in the seven-team league. 

Burnaby managed to avoid that scenario by scoring the final four goals of the game to take a 10-8 win. That gives them 16 points in 14 games and sole possession of third place, two points behind the New Westminster Salmonbellies.
