The Coquitlam Adanacs dropped back down to sixth place following a 10-6 setback at the hands of the Royal City Capitals Saturday July 8th in New Westminster. Jaxson Lee opened the scoring 3:31 into the first period, but the Capitals responded with three unanswered goals to take the lead into the first intermission. Goals from Spencer Stevens and Lee tied things up seven minutes into the second period, but again the hosts took over the rest of the inning, outscoring the Adanacs 4-1 to have a three goal cushion heading into the final frame and one they never reliquished. The Capitals outshot the 'Nacs 55-29 with Hunter Wongstedt and Cam Janzen busy in goal, combining to stop 45 of 55 shots. Lee finished the night with three goals and one assist to lead Coquitlam scoring.
The Adanac's next game is Sunday July 9th when they visit the Victoria Wolves. Their final home game before the playoffs is Sunday July 16th when they host the Wolves at the Poirier Sport & Leisure Complex. Face-off at 5:00pm.
