The Brooklin Lacrosse Club (1-3-1) visited the Six Nations Chiefs (3-1-1) at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena in Hagersville, Ontario.

The goalie match-up had Riley Hutchcraft in net for Brooklin facing Doug Jamieson in net for Six Nations.

Although the Six Nations Chiefs never had the lead, a late surge had them able to tie the game up.  Down two goals with less than six minutes left, a pair from Sam LeClair pushed the game to overtime.   In the extra ten minutes nothing was solved, leaving the game a 10-10 final.

To The Game:

The Brooklin team got started quickly when Austin Murphy converted a Ryan Lanchbury pass at 1:51, followed by Peyton Cormier scoring unassisted at 2:06.  The Chiefs narrowed the lead when Vaughn Harris finished off a Randy Staats pass at 4:53.

Bryce Tolmie added to the Brooklin lead, but Joe Cupinu in transition, and Vaughn Harris with his second of the game, evened the score before the end of the period.

After one period, Brooklin 3 Six Nations 3.

Second Period:

Brooklin got off to another quick start scoring three times to take a commanding 6-3 lead.  Kyle Waters converted a Sean Westley pass at 1:19, followed by a pair from Brady Kearnan gave Brooklin the lead. 

Marshall Powless scored for the Chiefs at 13:17, but was answered with a beautiful individual effort by Dyson Williams at 15:00 unassisted.  Austin Staats of Six Nations brought the game closer with a goal at 16:10, followed by Cody Jamieson scoring at 18:01.

After two periods, Brooklin 7 Six Nations 6.

Third Period:

After half a period of end to end action with both Riley Hutchcraft (Brooklin goalie) and Doug Jamieson (Chiefs goalie) making exceptional saves, Brooklin broke the drought at 9:52.  Austin Murphy scored his second of the game, followed by Dyson Williams scoring at 11:06 to open a three goal lead for Brooklin.  

The Chiefs put a lot of pressure on the young Brooklin defense, and were rewarded.   Austin Staats scored twice 0:36 seconds apart.  The first goal, converting a Cody Jamieson pass at 11:24, then converting a Vaughn Harris feed at 12:00 to bring the game within one goal.

Dyson Williams scored his second of the night for Brooklin for a little insurance at 14:06, but the powerful Chiefs team wouldn’t be denied.   Two goals from Sam LeClair tied the game.  The first goal was off a Cody Jamieson pass at 14:34, followed by a power play goal at 16:05.

Neither team scored the rest of the way, and we were headed for extra time.

After regulation, Brooklin 10 Six Nations 10.


Although both teams had opportunities in the ten minute sudden victory overtime, again the goaltending was spectacular.  Brooklin outshot Six Nations 12-5 in the extra period, with neither team scoring.

Final score, Brooklin 10 Six Nations 10
