Riggers Eliminate Mammoth For Spot In Western Final

Parity in the National Lacrosse League at least means one thing. As we’ve said all year anyone can beat anyone else, anywhere, any week. You might call last nights victory by the Calgary Roughnecks in Colorado an upset; I call it parity.

The Riggers have taken their spot in the Western Final with an impressive 15-13 win at the Pepsi Centre in front of over 15,000 Colorado fans. Calgary will now either host Portland or travel to San Jose, pending the outcome of this afternoons last game of the first round.

The game was back and forth all night with Colorado holding a 4-1 1st quarter lead, and Calgary holding a 6-5 halftime lead. Colorado again would be up 10-9 after three. But three goals in under a minute and a half in the fourth quarter, and a total of six in the final frame appeared to be the difference.

Calgary scoring was well spread out with Jeff Shattler and Kaleb Toth each netting three, while Tracey Kelusky and Kelly Hall each scored twice. Singles went to Scott Ranger, Josh Sanderson, Mike Carnegie, Curt Malawasky, and Chris Seller.

For Colorado Gavin Prout, Chris Gill, Jamie Shewchuk, and Jason Wulder all scored two, with singles going to Brian Langtry, Nick Carlson, Nenad Gajic, Jim Moss and Jordan Cornfield.
