The Six Nations Chiefs (7-1-1) visited the Brooklin Lacrosse Club (3-4-1) in Saturday night Major Series Lacrosse action.

The goalie match-up was Warren Hill in net for the Chiefs against Nick Damude in net for Brooklin.

Both teams lineups were depleted, and had to carry a lot of rookies in this game.  Six Nations looked to run away with the game, but Brooklin put up a strong fight all the way to the last second. The Chiefs were able to hold on for the 9-8 victory.

To The Game:

The Brooklin squad started the night out energetic, and were rewarded with the night’s first goal.  Dyson Williams fired a shot at Hill, which hit him, bounced up then off his back into the net at 2:32. 

Six Nations stormed back with four goals.  Jordan Durston converted a Brendan Bomberry pass at 6:53, followed by Dalton Sulver scoring off a Brooker Muir pass at 10:02.  Cody Jamieson blasted a shot on the power play at 13:14, followed by Charlie Scanlon converting an Ike Squire pass at 14:50.

Brooklin gave a final push before the period was over.  Luke Pilcher scored off a Shawn Westley pass at 16:17, followed by Ryan Lanchbury just 0:16 seconds later.  Austin Staats got one more for the Chiefs before the period was over unassisted at 19:29.

After one period, Six Nations 5 Brooklin 3.

Second Period:

Six Nations got on the board first shorthanded when Sam LeClair converted an Austin Staats pass at 3:52.  Chris Boushy answered back for Brooklin at 6:33, finishing off a Ryan Lanchbury pass.  They got within one goal when Ryan Barnable scored off a Jacob Saunders pass shorthanded at 13:10.

The Chiefs finished the period with a flurry of shots.  Joey Cupido scored in transition off a Nonkon Thompson pass at 15:29, followed by Dalton Sulver with his second of the night off a Cody Jamieson pass at 17:26. 

After two periods, Six Nations 8 Brooklin 5.

Third Period:

The Chiefs opened the period with Brendan Bomberry scoring off an Eric Fannell pass at 2:29, but Ryan Lanchbury answered back for Brooklin at 3:46.  Ryan Barnable scored his second of the night off a Mitch Wilde pass at 13:06.  Mitch Wilde brought Brooklin within one goal scoring unassisted at 16:47.

Brooklin put pressure on the Chiefs, but solid goaltending by Warren Hill kept it a one goal game. 

Final score, Six Nations 9 Brooklin 8.
