Redmen down Chiefs

Heading into the 2014 Major Series Lacrosse season, the Six Nations Pro-Fit Chiefs knew repeating as champions wouldn't be a cake walk.
Saturday night was a perfect example.
In a rematch of last season's MSL final, the Brooklin Redmen outlasted the Chiefs 8-6 at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena.
With the Chiefs down 4-3 after two periods, the Redmen got a pair of goals from Kevin Brownell and one from Joel Matthews to give them some early insurance goals, which they needed thanks to a three goal Chiefs rally midway through the frame.
Cody Jamieson scored a pair, while Craig Point added another during the three minute span. But Shayne Jackson again gave the Redmen some distance about a minute later.
In the first period, Matthews, Curtis Knight and Dan Lintner gave the Redmen a lead, while Jeff Shattler and Point responded.
Lintner and Shattler exchanged second period markers.
Steve Fryer got the win between the Redmen pipes, making 27 saves, while Evan Kirk took the loss in a 17-save effort.
With the win, hte Redmen, now 4-1, share the top spot in MSL with the Peterborough Lakers, while the Chiefs drop to 3-3 and sit in second place.
The Chiefs are back on the road in Peterborough Thursday at 8 p.m., before returning to the ILA Saturday against the Oakville Rock at 7 p.m.
