Six Nations Chiefs defeat Excelsiors again away from home

By TRT Staff with notes from

Last week, the Six Nations Chief racked up two victories to add to their near-perfect regular season. Still sitting atop Major Series Lacrosse League standings, they will have rematches against both the Brooklin Lacrosse Club and the Peterborough Lakers this week.

First hosting the Peterborough Lakers at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena, the Chiefs delivered a decided loss to the Lakers. It should be noted that multiple Chiefs goals were taken away due to crease violations.

With even scoring in the first period, 2-2, Lyle Thompson put the first goal away on a power play, followed by another from Austin Staats before the end of the period. In the second, the Chief maintained the lead with goals from Brendan Bomberry, Lyle Thompson with his second, Randy Staats, and Austin Staats with his second. The Lakers offered two responses, making the game 6-4 for the Chiefs.

In the third, the Lakers offered one more goal, before Austin Staats went for his third and Randy Staats his second. This finalized the game at 8-5.

Later, on Thursday, June 15, the Chiefs visited the Brampton Memorial Arena to face the Brampton Excelsiors.

The Excelsiors got on the board first, but the Chiefs answered back on the power-play with a goal from Cody Jamieson from a Lyle Thompson pass. Tyson Bell later scored in transition, finishing off a Kevin Hill feed with five minutes left of the period. The Excelsiors scored twice before the end of the period, making the game 2-3 for the Excelsiors.

The Excelsiors opened the second period scoring with two goals at the start of the period, and the Chiefs came back with three of their own before the end. Austin Staats converted an Eric Fannell pass into a goal, followed by a laser from Lyle Thompson unassisted 0:18 seconds later. Staats earned his second of the night, tying the game 5 – 5 by the end.

In the third period, the Excelsiors regained the lead with a single, but Larson Sundown tied the game on the power-play from a pass from Brendan Bomberry.

With just 2 seconds left in the game, Sam LeClair converted a Lyle Thompson pass to win the game for the Chiefs in dramatic fashion.

The Chiefs next game will take place at home on Tuesday, June 20 against the Brooklin LC at 8:00 p.m., too late for publication with Two Row Times. And they will face the Peterborough Lakers away from home on Thursday, June 22 at 8:00 p.m..
