For the first game of the Major Series Lacrosse season, the Six Nations Pro-Fit Chiefs hosted the Brooklin Lacrosse Club at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena on Monday, May 23.
Offering a continued showing of lacrosse for Bread and Cheese day, the game was delayed due to lack of game officials. As two volunteers offered to officiate, the game began with a lead for Brooklin, putting away the only two goals in the first period.
Come the second period, Randy Staats, Kobe Whitcomb, Sam LeClair (2), and Brendan Bomberry put goals away. This brought the game to an exciting 4-5 for the Chiefs.
In the third, Brooklin wanted to press for victory with two fast goals in the first minutes of the period. But the Chiefs were steady in their footing with goals from Marshall Powless, Kellan LeClair, Randy Staats, Kobe Whitcomb and Vaughan Harris. The Chiefs closed the game 10-6.
The next game for the Chiefs will venture the team out to Owen Sound to face the North Stars on May 28 at 7:00 p.m.. Their next home game at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena will fall on Tuesday, June 7 at 8:00 p.m., versus the Cobourg Kodiaks.
