The Six Nations Chiefs won a pivotal Game 4 on Vancouver Island last night over the Victoria Shamrocks 8-3. The win tied the best of seven series at two gams apiece, and the five goal winning margin is the largest one we’ve seen in the four games so far. It looked like it was going to be another super tight game after a 2-2 first period, but Six Nations came out hot in the second, and pulled away.
With an 8-6 win on Monday night on Vancouver Island, the Victoria Shamrocks now hold a 2-1 advantage in the best of seven series over the Six Nations Chiefs. The winner of the series is crowned champion of Senior Men’s Lacrosse in Canada, and gets to hoist the monstrous Mann Cup.
The Six Nations Chiefs won Game 2 of the Mann Cup last night, 10-8, over the Victoria Shamrocks, and that evens the series at one win apiece, as the Shamrocks took Game 1 in a low-scoring 5-4 win.

Six Nations touched down in Victoria yesterday afternoon and are set to begin the series this Friday.
