The Six Nations Chiefs are in thorough control of their MSL semifinal series, taking a commanding 3-0 lead over the Brooklin Redmen with a 10-6 win Thursday night. Kasey Beirnes led the Chiefs with a hat trick while Cody Jamieson, Colin Doyle and Jeff Shattler each had 4 points. Shayne Jackson had a pair of goals and Shawn Williams 3 assists for Brooklin. The Chiefs scored four power play goals and added a shorthanded marker while the Redmen were unsuccessful on their three power play attempts.
Chiefs' defender Billy Dee Smith said it's been nice getting their whole roster back together after an unsettled regular season. “I think the difference right now is we're playing as a team,” said Smith. “If we need to get one our offence is getting a quick one back. We're helping each other out, both the offence and defence preventing the other team from going on runs. Whether they score two our offence answers or the defence shuts the door, or vice versa. We're playing a good team game right now.”
While the situation doesn't look good for the Redmen, Brooklin Head Coach Wayne Colley says he still has faith in his team. “I honestly think that we can come back and win four games,” Colley said. “We've got to win a period at a time and right now we're not winning the periods. Hats off to them.”
