Jamieson returns and makes impact in season opener
Cody Jamieson made a triumphant return to the Six Nations Pro-Fit Chiefs Tuesday night.
After sitting out last season with a torn Achilles, Jamieson had six assists, scored two goals, including the game-winner in overtime in an 11-9 win over the Coburg Kodiaks,
"It's great to be back," Jamieson said after the game. "It's been a long process. I couldn't wait to get back in a Chiefs uniform. It's always nice playing for your hometown team. I'm just glad we got the win."
Randy Staats also had a big game, scoring three times and adding one helper, while Jesse Gamble, Craig Point, Brodie Merril, Stephen Keogh, Joe Hall, and Quinn Powless added singles.
Matt Crough led the Kodiaks, scoring four times, and adding two assists, while Shayne Adams had two goals and two helpers.
With the Chiefs up by a goal late in the game, Adams led the comeback, scoring with just over a minute to play in regulation to tie things up, before Chad Cummings scored with 28 seconds left to force the extra period.
Luke Laszkiewicz and Dylan Goddard also scored for the Kodiaks.
Warren Hill made his Chiefs debut between the pipes and was fantastic, making 40 saves to earn his first Major Series Lacrosse win. Rance Vigneux was tagged with the loss in a 30-save effort.
The Chiefs are on the road Thursday in Brampton and Monday in Oakville, before returning home to the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena Tuesday against the Oakville Rock at 8 p.m.
