All Lacrosse All The Time – A Division of Edge of Philly Sports Network
The league leading Six Nations Chiefs (4-1-1) visited the Peterborough Lakers (3-2) at the Memorial Centre in Peterborough, Ontario, Thursday night.
Cody Jamieson made his presence felt throughout the game scoring four goals, with two helpers enroute to a 9-5 win over the Lakers.
The goaltending match-up had Mike Poulin in net for the Lakers, facing Doug Jamieson in net for the Chiefs.
To The Game:
Shawn Evans opened the game for Peterborough shorthanded, when he took a screenshot that surprised Jamieson at 2:12. Sam LeClair came back for the Chiefs converting a Cody Jamieson pass at 4:27.
Holden Cattoni gave the Lakers what turned out to be their last lead of the night when he scored off a Shawn Evans pass at 7:35, but Charlie Scanlon finished off a Nonkon Thompson pass to tie the game at 10:45.
Cody Jamieson made his presence felt scoring the next two goals. His first goal came from a Brendan Bomberry pass at 13:19, followed by blasting a Tyson Bomberry pass in at 16:26. Holden Cattoni scored his second of the game for Peterborough off a Thomas Hoggarth pass to end the first period scoring.
After one period, Six Nations 4 Peterborough 3.
The Chiefs started to take over the game at this point. Their defense kept the Lakers to the outside, allowing only low percentage shots, while their offense started getting to Mike Poulin.
Cody Jamieson scored his third of the night on the power play, off a Vaughn Harris pass at 7:15, followed by Joey Cupido converting a Tyson Bomberry feed at 10:44.
The goal that took the air out of the Memorial Centre was Nonkon Thompson scoring shorthanded off a long lead pass from Doug Jamieson at 16:48.
After two periods, Chiefs 7 Lakers 3.
The Lakers needed a fast start to the period, but solid defense from the Chiefs, and good goaltending from Jamieson stopped them at every turn.
Vaughn Harris opened the third period scoring for the Chiefs converting a Cody Jamieson pass at 11:41. Finally, Peterborough got back on the board when Holden Cattoni scored his third of the night shorthanded off a Kiel Matisz pass at 13:25. That goal ended a drought of 36:59 for the Lakers.
Frustration was taking over the Peterborough squad. Things got chippy in the middle of the period with a number of minor tussels happening. Cody Jamieson was awarded a penalty shot at 13:25, but Mike Poulin made that save quite handily.
Six Nations was doing a great job of killing clock to put this one in the win column.
Cody Jamieson scored his fourth of the night at 16:53 to add insurance to the lead, but was answered by Holden Cattoni’s fourth of the night with just 0:21 seconds left.
