Roughnecks Rally Past Rush
Saskatoon, SK - The Calgary Roughnecks strung together three five goal quarters to overcome the Rush 17-12 on Saturday night at the SaskTel Centre.
Saskatchewan jumped out to an early 5-2 lead but the Riggers regrouped and rallied passed the home team adding 15 goals to secure back-to-back wins.
Three Roughnecks tallied four markers in the road win including Tyler Pace (4g, 3a), Curtis Dickson (4g, 7a), with a game leading 11 points, and Dane Dobbie (4g, 6a). Dobbie's 10 point effort pushed him passed the 800 NLL career point milestone marker.
It was a team effort for the Rush as four different players had a four point showing with Robert Church and former 'Neck Jeff Shattler posting three goals and an assist each while Ryan Keenan and Mark Matthews rounded out the scoring.
Saskatchewan outshot Calgary 51-38 while the Roughnecks were 2-2 on the power play and the Rush were 1-2.
