It was truly a battle of Warriors when Brantford and Six Nations met in an Ontario Lacrosse Association junior C west division semifinal series.
And, when the dust settled last week, it was the Six Nations Warriors who scored a 13-12 overtime win on the road in Game 5 on Thursday to defeat the Brantford Warriors 3-2 in the best-of-five series.
Six Nations advanced to the best-of-five west division final, where it trails the Wilmot Wild 1-0.
Six Nations and Brantford split the first two games in the semifinal before Brantford took a 2-1 lead with an 11-10 home win on July 16.
Six Nations then staved off elimination with a 9-5 home win on Wednesday before scoring the 13-12 victory at the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre last Thursday.
In the 11-10 victory for Brantford in Game 3, captain Connor Merritt scored the game winner with 1:12 remaining in regulation.
Merritt (three goals, one assist), Caleb Wells (1G, 2A), Cole Robillard (1G, 2A) and Cooper Day-Allison (2G, 1A) were the leading scorers for Brantford with Jordan Mike (2G, 1A) and Riley Hess (1G, 2A) getting three points each for Six Nations.
