SIX NATIONS – The Six Nations Pro-Fit Chiefs remain on top in the Major Series Sr. A after last weeks games but suffered their second loss of the season along the way
Thursday night the Mann Cup Champions fell short of OT by one goal after mounting a huge third period assault where they scored nine goals to get back into a game many had already put in the Peterborough bag. But the Lakers scored four, just enough to preserve the 14-13 win.

Ryan Benesch, with three goals and four assists, and Jeff Shattler’s three and assisted on three also contributed, but it was too little – too late for the Chiefs as Adam Jones scored what would stand as the game winner for the Lakers. Dillon Ward was in net for the Chiefs.
