Redmen Come up Just Short - Not for Lack of Effort or Heart
Six Nations scored the first goal of the game with 15 seconds off the clock and the last goal with 22 seconds remaining (for the 10-9 win). In between those two, fans at Iroquois Park were treated to a thoroughly entertaining contest.
Zach Higgins coming off a great effort in a game four win was given the nod while Brandon Miller took the net for the Chiefs.
The Redmen got on the board after the Chiefs opened a 2-0 lead, Shayne Jackson with the patience of a veteran waited for Miller to make the first move and calmly deposited the ball over his shoulder into the back of the net. The game featured a steady parade to the penalty box and both sides capitalized on the man advantage. Score after the first was 5-3 for the Chiefs including a power play with 10 tics on the clock.
The Redmen were able to use their man advantage as well and halfway through the second they were able to tie the game at 6-6. Score at the end of two periods, however was 8-6 for the Chiefs who again scored in the final minute on the power play.
The home side stormed back in the final frame to tie the game at 8-8 with eight minutes remaining and 22 seconds later were able to take the 9-8 lead. Cody Jamieson with his third goal of the night tied the game again with five minutes on the clock. The teams were back and forth with Higgins and Miller both giving their teams a chance to win. Jamieson ended the Redmen season as he drove to the net and scored the winner with 22 seconds remaining.
Jackson with two for the Redmen, Dan Lintner with three and Shawn Williams with a pair. Jamieson was hot for the Chiefs with four, Shattler and Beirnes both with two.
Great season for the Redmen and fans will look forward to 2015 with high expectations and hopes that this group will stick together.
