Six Nations Chiefs 8 Victoria Shamrocks 6

Coach Heyes made a change for game 5 of the Six Nations, Victoria

Shamrocks 7 game Mann Cup series. Cody Hagledorn started in goal for

the Shamrocks.

The shamrocks scored first for the first time in this series.

Six Nations would counter however with a 4 goal run. The Doyle line with

Shattler and Jamieson have been hard to contain and limit for the entire

series despite the rocks playing a much better period they were down 4-1

after the 1st.

In the second the Shamrocks kept pushing the pace and they scored the

first of the second period on a goal by Wardle. Tyler Hass scored a great

transistion goal in the 2nd as well. The Chiefs responded with their top

line with Beirnes getting a goal from Doyle and Shattler. Cody Haggedorn

stood on his head and battled resulting in the rocks winning the period 2-1

to pull within 2.

The rocks kept the momentum going in the 3rd with a pair of goals by

game MVP Corey Small before a few bad penalties killed the early period

momentum. A high sticking major was called on the Shamrocks which the

chiefs capitalised on to put the chiefs up 7-5. Then the Chiefs scored on a

2 min power play to go up by 3 before Rhys Duch scored the last goal for

the Shamrocks.

Coach Bob Heyes told me after the game that in the first they had dug

themselves a hole at 4-1. Cody Haggedorn made some key saves to

keep the game close. Second period Heyes said “we found our game and

battled against some bad calls, some bad bounces, and bad decisions”.

“Third period had some great momentum and tied things up”. “Small hit

a post and then the penalty”. “ We couldn’t recover from that mistake”

Defensive coordinator Jordan Sundher said “no excuses we will win on

friday and saturday guaranteed”.

 

Defence man” Greg Harnett told me “We will be prepared when we play on Friday”, “We

will put it all on the.

My prediction for game 6 is 8-4 shamrocks. There will be a game 7 folks.

That’s my view from a chair.
