Chiefs keep pace with win in Brampton

The Six Nations took an early lead and didn't look back, beating the Brampton Excelsiors 7-4 on the road Thursday night.
Kasey Beirnes scored the first of his three goals two and a half minutes into the game, while Jeff Shattler added another one minute later to give the Chiefs a lead they wouldn't give up.
Midway through the frame, Matt Holman got the Excelsiors on the board, but Shattler responded with his second of the period.
In the second period, Brady Haseltine inched the Excelsiors closer, but Vaughn Harris continued his brilliant rookie season with the Chiefs, netting a pair of goals four minutes apart.
Beirnes then scored twice in the third period, giving the Chiefs some insurance, while Chris Corbell and Dustin Carvallo responded for the Excelsiors.
Though he didn't put a ball by Anthony Cosmo, Cody Jamieson was the Chiefs' catalyst, dishing out five assists, with Roger Vyse chipping in with three.
Brandon Miller made 38 saves for the Chiefs to earn his second win of the season, while Cosmo made 32 in a losing effort.
The win improves the Chiefs' record to 7-5, which keeps pace with the front-running Brooklin Redmen, who now sit at 9-1 thanks to their 11-9 win over the Peterborough Lakers Thursday.
The Chiefs, with six games remaining in the regular season, are back at the Iroquois La
crosse Arena Saturday, when they host the Kitchener-Waterloo Kodiaks at 7 p.m.
