Shawn Evans wanted to make sure he and his Peterborough Lakers would live to see another day.
The Lakers super pest lead the way with four goals and three assists in a 9-6 win over the Six Nations Pro-Fit Chiefs Tuesday.
The Chiefs still lead the best-of-seven Major Series Lacrosse final 3-2.
The Lakers gave the Chiefs a bit of their own medicine from the night before, getting off to a quick start in the first period. After Cory Vitarelli and Jeff Shattler exchanged goals, Vitarelli, John Grant Jr. and Evans opened up a 4-1 lead.
Evans continued to dominate, scoring a pair of goals in the first five minutes of the frame. Roger Vyse got the Chiefs on the board, but Vitarelli quickly replied. Then it was Cody Jamieson's turn to score a pair to close out the second period.
In the third, Aaron Wilson and Evans bookmarked two goals by Stephen Keogh.
Matt Vinc got the win for the Lakers making 41 saves, while Evan Kirk stopped 39 shots.
The Chiefs again get a chance to close out the series Friday, when the two teams lock horns at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena at 8 p.m.
