Seals Bring Down Roughnecks
San Diego, CA - The San Diego Seals built quarter leads of 3-2, 8-5 and 14-6 en route to a 15-9 triumph over the Calgary Roughnecks on Friday night at the Pechanga Arena.
The home club came out of the gate firing, outshooting Calgary 62-46 while netting six unanswered third quarter goals. Special teams powered the scoring attack for the Seals as they capitalized on the power play on three occasions.
Austin Staats (3g, 4a) was the top sniper for San Diego recording a game-high seven points while Rhys Duch and Dane Dobbie each tallied five points with a pair of goals and three assists to lead the Roughnecks' offence.
Defence played a big part for both clubs as a multitude of penalties, including seven for Calgary in the fourth quarter alone, changed the momentum.
Christian Del Bianco, with an impressive 47-save effort, was the backbone of the Roughnecks' defence as they held San Diego to just one goal in the fourth quarter.
The Roughnecks return to action on Sunday, Jan. 20, when they visit the Colorado Mammoth at the Pepsi Center for a 3:00 p.m. matinee.
