SIX NATIONS – There was one thing the players, coaches and fans from both teams could agree on. No one seems to have been happy with the officiating during Sunday night’s Game #3 of the OLA Jr. A Quarter Finals at the ILA.

In the end, the Arrows took a 3-0 commanding hold of the best of seven series over the Burlington Chiefs with a 7-3 win, but it came with a lot of frustration from both benches.

The Arrows Express, wearing their throw-back white uni’s, took a 3-1 first period lead after Chiefs’ Nolan Apers s cored the first goal of the game. Austin Staats tied it up and Oran Horn and Jordan Durston put a pad under it by the end of the first.

Durston scored his second at 35 seconds of the second period but the Chiefs caught a breath of second wind to score two quick goals compliments of Ryan Launchbury and Lauchlin Elder. Dallas John put an end to the Chiefs good fortune at 18:05.

Durston made it a hat-trick with a short handed goal from James Rahe at 9:16 with Brendan Bomberry putting the game in the bag at 19:20.

Six Nations could sweep the Chiefs Tuesday night at the Central Arena in Burlington. If not, Game five will be back at the ILA July 16th ay 8 pm.
