After an absolute beat down in game one, the Cobourg Kodiaks (0-2) looked to rebound at home against the mighty Six Nations Chiefs (2-0).
Austin Staats was a one man wrecking crew scoring seven goals in the victory. If Cobourg is going to be successful, they are going to have to be more physical, limiting the track-meet style the Chiefs like to play.
Doug Jamieson was in net for Six Nations facing Steven Orleman in net for the Kodiaks.
Steven Orleman was sensational in the Kodiaks net stopping 54 of 61 shots. Larson Sundown (3g,1a) was the hero for the Chiefs with two late goals to secure the 7-5 victory.
