Chiefs human for one night in loss to Redmen

Back-to-back games and playing a desperate team is usually a deadly combination.
Despite a third-period comeback led by Stephen Keogh, the Six Nations Pro-Fit Chiefs took an 8-7 loss to the Brooklin Redmen on the chin Wednesday night on the road.
Down four goals heading into the final frame, Keogh scored a pair of goals, while Ryan Benesch added one to mount the comeback. Unfortunately for the defending Major Series Lacrosse and Mann Cup champs, Mike Poulin shut the door on his old team to preserve the win in a 47-save effort.
Benesch led the way in the first period, scoring twice, with Dhane Smith adding one. But TJ Sanders was equal to the task scored a pair for the Redmen, while Mike Teeter evened things up.
The Redmen took things over in the second period, thanks to a pair of goals from Derek Suddons, while Dan Lintner, Patrick McCory, and Teeter added singles.
Jeff Shattler was the only Chiefs reply.
It was a must win for the Redmen, who are battling for their playoff lives. The win puts them one point behind the Brampton Excelsiors and Oakville Rock, who hold the final playoff spots. Unfortunately for the Redmen, they only have one game remaining, and must wait for the Excelsiors who have four remaining, while the Rock have two games left.
The Chiefs fall to 14-3 on the season and clinched first place with their win over the Peterborough Lakers Tuesday.
The Chiefs close out the MSL regular season Monday, when they take on the Rock in Oakville at 8 pm.
