It was another overtime win for Chaos LC as they took down Chrome LC on Saturday in Atlanta. Chaos was able to overcome a huge comeback from Chrome, securing the win in overtime with a Deemer Class scoring the game-winner off an assist from Myles Jones. 

Chaos LC was led by Deemer Class with 3 goals while Josh Byrne also tallied 3 points (2G,1A). Myles Jones had 4 points (1G,3A) in the win as well. Blaze Riorden made 14 saves to help anchor the Chaos defense as well.

Ned Crotty led Chrome LC with 4 points (3G,1A) while Jordan Wolf also had 4 points (2G,2A). Jordan MacIntosh also scored 3 goals as well. In cage Brett Quenner stood on his head, making 15 saves to really lift the Chrome defense. 

The first quarter was all Chaos as they were dominating in almost every aspect of the game, getting it done at both ends of the field. Eric Scott got Chaos on the board first and they just took over from there. 

While the Chaos defense really fueled their offense early on Chrome was able to get a little something going midway through the first with Jordan MacIntosh getting them on the board.

Chaos held a 7-1 lead heading into the second, but the tide certainly started to change when Chrome replaced John Galloway in cage with Brett Quenner. He absolutely took over, standing on his head and even jump starting their offense. 

A two-goal run early in the second brought them back to life. While Chaos did regain their mojo midway through the second Chrome ended the half with a three-goal run to cut the Chaos lead to 8-6 at the half. 

Both teams really stepped up in the third as the ball kept bouncing back-and-forth. Chaos got started off hot with Josh Byrne pushing their lead out to 9-6 early on. After trading goals through the middle of the third Justin Guterding scored one late to give Chrome a to of momentum heading into the fourth.

A three-goal run to start the fourth helped cut the Chaos lead to 12-11. A two-pointer from Jarrod Neumann helped Chaos take the reigns a little bit more, giving them a 14-11 lead midway through the fourth.

Chrome was able to fight back, forcing overtime after tying it at 14 in the final minutes of the fourth. In overtime the Duke connection worked very well in the favor of Chaos as Myles Jones found Deemer Class on the wing for the game-winner.
