After Jesse Gamble responded to a Stephen Hoar goal early in the third period, Craig Point, Colin Doyle and Stephen Keogh netted goals in a three minute span to jolt the Chiefs to a 9-5 win over the Peterborough Lakers Thursday in front of a packed house at the Memorial Centre.
With the win, the Chiefs lead the best-of-seven series 2-1.
The Chiefs began red hot, keeping the momentum from Game 2, with Cody Jamieson, Jeff Shattler, Keogh and Gamble scoring within the first 11 minutes of the game.
After Mark Steenhuis got the Lakers on the board, Roger Vyse once again gave the Chiefs a four-goal lead.
In the second period, the Lakers showed no quit, with Shawn Evans, Steenhuis and John Grant Jr. finding the back of the net.
Evan Kirk was again sharp, making 32 saves for the win, while Matt Vinc had 33 saves in the loss.
Game 4 of the series is back at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena on Monday at 8 p.m.
Out west in the Western Lacrosse Association final, the Victoria Shamrocks earned first blood in their best-of-seven series against the Maple Ridge Burrards.
The Shamrocks won the opener 9-5, with Game 2 Friday in Maple Ridge.
