The Six Nations Chiefs (2-0) visited the Cobourg Kodiaks (0-2) after their dramatic game one victory, at the Baltimore Recreation Centre Arena.

The goalie match-up had Warren Hill in net for the Chiefs facing Steve Orelman in net for Cobourg.

The Chiefs got off to an early lead and never really looked back.  The Kodiaks made it interesting with a five goal run to tie the game, but Six Nations put together a final push for the 8-7 victory.
