Maybe the Sr. Salmonbellies should consider playing out of Burnaby’s Bill Copeland Arena. For the second consecutive Friday, the Salmonbellies went to Copeland and came away with a victory which accounts for half of their wins this season (4-8-0).

The ’Bellies beat the Burnaby Lakers 11-9 Friday thanks to Cliff Smith and Keegan Bal. Smith had an eight-point night, including three goals while Bal scored four times and assisted on two. Jordan McBridge, Tyler Crompton, Sean Robinson and Matt MacKenzie also scored for New West.

The win came a night after the Salmonbellies gave up the game’s final five goals in a 9-6 loss to the Coquitlam Adanacs at Queen’s Park Arena. McBride scored twice while singles went to Robinson, Smith, Bal and Richard Lachlan.

New West is four points out of a playoff spot. They will play last-place Nanaimo Timbermen (3-8-1) at Queen’s Park on Thursday (7 p.m.).
