The Six Nations Chiefs (3-1) visited the Cobourg Community Centre to face the Kodiaks (1-2) in Major Series Lacrosse action Sunday evening.
The Chiefs have been busy bolstering their lineup, and this past week was no different. Ben McIntosh was aquired from the Coquitlam Adanacs to join the Chiefs on their mission to win the Mann Cup this season.
The Chiefs are coming off an overtime loss to Brooklin last Wednesday. They were looking to right the ship in this match. Cobourg’s last game was a convincing win over the same Brooklin team 11-5, after dropping their first game of the year to Six Nations in overtime the previous week.
The goaltending match-up had Jackson Brown in net for Cobourg against Warren Hill in net for Six Nations.
Although the Chiefs got out to a big lead on the strength of Lyle Thompson (3g,0a), Ben McIntosh (1g,3a), and Cody Jamieson (1g,2a), the Kodiaks kept fighting. Cobourg brought the game within two goals late in the third period. Although Cobourg pushed hard, Six Nations withstood the challenge for the 10-7 victory.
