The Six Nations Pro-Fit Chiefs are heading to the Major Series Lacrosse final.
Like he has much of his career, Cody Jamieson stepped up when it mattered most, scoring with five minutes remaining and again with 22 seconds remaining in regulation to give the Chiefs a 10-9 win over the Brooklin Redmen Monday night in Whitby.
With the win, the defending Mann Cup champions take the best-of-seven MSL semifinal series 4-1, and advance to the final against the Peterborough Lakers.
Jeff Shattler, and Kasey Beirnes gave the Chiefs a quick start to the game, before the Redmen responded with goals from Shayne Jackson and a pair from Curtis Knight.
But the Chiefs grabbed the momentum back in the last four minutes thanks to Beirnes, Tom Montour and Jamieson.
In the second period, Vaughn Harris extended the Chiefs lead before Shawn Williams scored twice and Kiel Matisz added one to get the Redmen back in the game. But like hte first period, the Chiefs owned the last four minutes, with Shattler and Jamieson scoring goals.
Facing elimination with a period to play, Knight scored early, while Jackson and Dan Lintner gave the Redmen the lead minutes before Jamieson took things over.
Brandon Miller again earned the win making 35 saves, while Zack Higgins was tagged with the loss in a 36-save effort.
Although unconfirmed, the final between the Chiefs and Lakers may begin Thursday at 8 p.m., in Peterborough. When the final series is set, we will announce it here.
