MANN CUP: Do or die for Shamrocks as Chiefs in control

Six Nations Chiefs can win Mann Cup in Game 6 Friday night

Colin Doyle scored a goal, made two assists and stopped six of nine shots as the Six Nations Chiefs won Game 5 of the Mann Cup 11-7 over the Victoria Shamrocks on Wednesday night at Bear Mountain Arena.

The Chiefs lead the senior A men’s national lacrosse championship best-of-seven series 3-2 and can win Friday (Sept. 13) at 7 p.m. Game 7, if necessary, is 7 p.m. Saturday night.

Wednesday’s was the rarest of stat lines for Doyle, as the veteran attacker came to the rescue of the Six Nations Chiefs after goalies Brandon Miller and Evan Kirk were both found guilty of illegal equipment in the third period and ejected.

The Shamrocks called for the equipment checks on the goalies and had a golden chance to erase the 9-4 deficit when the inexperienced Doyle came in.

And take advantage the Shamrocks did, putting three past Doyle.

But Steven Keogh stole the show by banging in two more goals to make it 11-7 for the Chiefs.

Long before the Shamrocks called for the equipment checks its players were showing their frustration. Tyler Hass and Soctt Ranger had come undone and were showing it in their actions, not a good sign from two of the team’s leaders.

Keogh scored a hat trick for the Chiefs and so did Cody Jamieson, the current leader for series MVP, with three goals and six assists for nine points.

Jeff Shattler led the Rocks with two goals and three assists for five points.

They said it:

“A couple bad apples doesn’t ruin the orchard. This is a great place to play,” said Cody Jamieson regarding alleged racial slurs yelled at Chiefs by fans Monday.
