Matt Vinc earned the win in net for the Lakers, turning asided 40 Chiefs shots, while Brandon Miller is tagged with the loss despite another strong 35-save game.
With the win, the Lakers capture the MSL championship, and will now challenge the Western Lacrosse Association champion Victoria Shamrocks for the Mann Cup, which begins this week in British Columbia.
The Chiefs would like to thank all of its fans for their support this season.
