Chiefs down Redmen 17-8 behind 7-1 first period

Apparently, the Six Nations Chiefs didn't like not having control of Major Series Lacrosse's top spots in several categories. Six Nations dumped the Brooklin Redmen 17-8 to regain sole possession of first place ahead of the Peterborough Lakers.

Dhane Smith's 3 goals and 5 assists returned him to the top of the scoring chart and the flood of goals put them back on top of the team scoring race with 107, seven more than the second-place Peterborough Lakers. The Chiefs also retained their lead for fewest goals allowed; their 55 leads the Lakers by 10.

Ryan Benesch's first game back from an injury looked much like his other games for Six Nations: he had 4 goals and 2 assists. 

Six Naitons will look to hold on to their overall lead Thursday when they head to the Peterborough Memorial Centre to take on the Lakers, who trail them by two points atop the standings.
