Redmen Drop Second in a Row to the Chiefs
A week ago the Brooklin Redmen hosted the Six Nations Chiefs on Scott McMichael Minor Lacrosse Night and lost a heartbreaker 9-8 in the dying seconds. Tonight the two teams renewed their rivalry at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena with the Redmen looking for retribution and to get above .500 on the season. Despite two quick goals to open the game and their offensive weapons showing some success the Redmen came out on the wrong end of an 8-5 loss. The good news, they have less than 24 hours to forget about this one as they get back at it tomorrow with the Peterborough Lakers in for a visit.
Dan Lintner and Mark Matthews scored the first two goals of the game before the Chiefs rallied with four straight in eight minutes and took a 4-2 lead into the first break.
The middle frame had a particularly defensive feel to it as the Redmen outscored the Chiefs 2-1. Angus Goodleaf and Zach Higgins played well to keep the game close and give their respective teams a chance to win. Curtis Knight for the Redmen in the dying seconds of the second period gave the visitors some momentum for the third. He added his second just two minutes in to the final frame to help the visitors claw back to a 5-5 tie to start the final twenty minutes. The Redmen could not capitalize however and the Chiefs went on another three goal unanswered run to take the 8-5 win.
