A quick start was all the Six Nations Pro-Fit Chiefs needed to cruise to a 7-4 victory over the Victoria Shamrocks Friday night in front of over 2,200 fans at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena.
With the win, the Chiefs lead the best-of-seven Mann Cup championship series 1-0.

With a packed house, ceremonial faceoff, and Smoke Dancers performing before the game,  Craig Point scored twice and Colin Doyle added one during an eight minute stretch that gave the Chiefs a quick lead.
After Rhys Duch responded, Cody Jamieson regained the three goal lead heading into the break.
In the second period, it was all Chiefs again, with Jamieson, Kasey Beirnes, and Doyle scoring, while Chris Wardle responded for the Western Lacrosse Association champs.
The Shamrocks seem to find their legs in the third period, with Dhane Smith and Brandon Bull netting goals.

Like he was in Game 7 of the Major Series Lacrosse final, Brandon Miller was fantastic between the Chiefs' pipes making 43 saves, while Matt Flindell was tagged with the loss in a 29-save effort.
For Miller's efforts, he was named Under Armour Player of the Game for the Chiefs, while Smith got it for the Shamrocks.
Game 2 of the series is Saturday at the ILA at 8pm.
