SIX NATIONS — The Six Nations Chiefs nearly completed a comeback during their last game on June 23, dropping a 8-9 decision to the Peterborough Lakers.
The Lakers opened the scoring on a power-play unassisted at 2:50 into the first period. Sam LeClair tied the game off an Eric Fannell pass at 18:40, but another Turner Evans goal 0:34 seconds later gave the Lakers the lead. Bryan Cole tied the game on the power-play converting a Sam LeClair pass with just four seconds left in the period.
In the second period, the Lakers scored 43 seconds in, while Sam LeClair and Ben McIntosh answered for the Chiefs giving them the lead at 5:22. But the Lakers fin-ished the period with a five goal flourish, this gave them a four goal lead.
In the third, the Lakers scored just 0:41 seconds in, but the rest of the quarter be-longed to the Chiefs. Shayne Jackson scored the two for the Chiefs. The first was off a Bryan Cole feed, and the second came off a Kevin Hill pass at 3:49. Mason Kamminga got in on the scoring, converting a Bryan Cole feed at 4:48 on the pow-er-play, followed by Shayne Jackson with his fourth of the night.
The next Chiefs game took them to the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena to face the Bramp-ton Excelsiors on Tuesday night. The Chiefs will move to the Iroquois Park Sports Complex to play the Brooklin Lacrosse Club on Wednesday, then back home again the following Tuesday on July 11, to rematch the Lakers.
