Chiefs lose MSL final in six games

LacrosseChiefs lose MSL final in six games

The Six Nations Chiefs will not be moving on to the Mann Cup Championship after losing to the Peterborough Lakers in the Major Series Lacrosse (MSL) finals on Sunday, August 28. 

“The Lakers are our biggest rivals in the league for a reason and we knew it was going to be a tough series,” head coach Duane Jacobs said about the matchup.

The Chiefs headed into the playoffs on top of the MSL, with the Lakers trailing by only three points. 

In the first round of the playoffs, the Chiefs swept the Cobourg Kodiaks and Peterborough defeated the Brooklin Lacrosse Club in six games.

In the finals, Peterborough took an early series lead in game one in Six Nations with a 10-6 victory. The Chiefs responded with a 13-12 road win of their own to tie up the series. 

The Lakers won back-to-back games to take a 3-1 series lead, but the Chiefs came out with an explosive performance in game five to push off elimination. 

Despite holding the lead for most of the first and second period in game six, the Chiefs could not hold on and the Lakers won 10-8 to end the best-of-seven series. 

“Our guys left it all on the floor,” the team said. “We can’t thank our community enough for their support throughout the season and playoffs.”

With the series win, the Lakers will host the 2022 Mann Cup against the Langley Thunder of the Western Lacrosse Association. The series is scheduled to start on September 9.
