CALGARY, AB - Sean Pollock scored at 6:02 of overtime to lead the Colorado Mammoth to a 13-12 win over the Calgary Roughnecks in front of 8,221 fans at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Saturday night.

The Mammoth trailed 12-8 in the fourth quarter before mounting a furious comeback to tie the game and send it into overtime.

“Defensively, that’s on us,” said transition specialist Geoff Snider, who had two goals and an assist in a losing cause for the Riggers. “For us, we’ve got to be able to close. Those runs, they sting you. A potent offensive team like Colorado, they’re going to sting you on that. We’ve got to be able to close the game out and that’s something that we’ll address.”

The Roughnecks (0-2) will have a chance to get revenge next Friday night in Denver when the same two teams will face off against each other once again at the Pepsi Centre.

“We’ve got an opportunity to bounce back right away,” said Snider, who won 22 of 25 faceoff that he took in addition to scooping up 12 loose balls. “We get to move forward and just build. We’re right in these games. I don’t think we’ve played close to the way that we can play yet. I think that’s a real positive thing.”

Netminder Mike Poulin did his best to keep Calgary in the game as he stopped 41 of 54 shots he faced. With time winding down in the fourth quarter, Poulin made a highlight-reel save with his right arm to deny Colorado sniper John Grant Jr. from scoring his seventh goal of the game.

“They wanted it more, it’s simple,” Poulin said. “We’ve played it long enough that we know how to win so that’s what’s frustrating.”

Grant led the Mammoth attack with six goals and two assist, Gavin Prout scored once and set up six others, while Jamie Lincoln had two goals. John Gallant, Jordan McBride and Adam Jones also scored for Colorado.

“It’s a game of bounces,” said Calgary coach Curt Malawsky. “Today wasn’t meant to be. We’ll just regroup and battle back.”

Shawn Evans scored for goals and added three assists for the Roughnecks, who also lost 13-11 to the Toronto Rock in their home opener one week earlier.

“We had a better game than our last game but we have to be able to close our games and we weren’t able to do that,” Evans said. “We had a lot of opportunities, a lot of chances and we have to capitalize on our chances.”

After missing the first game of the season due to a suspension, Dobbie returned to the Calgary lineup against Colorado and picked up a goal and three assists. Jeff Shattler (2g, 2a), Scott Ranger (1g, 3a), and Joe Resetarits (1g, 2a) also had multiple-point performances, while Curtis Dickson scored once.

Matt Roik picked up the win in net for Colorado in a relief appearance. Roik finished with 24 saves, including four in overtime, while starting goalie Chris Levis stopped 12 of 19 shots he faced.

The Riggers scored on four of their seven shots in the first quarter to take a 4-2 lead. Evans Shattler, Ranger and Resetarits provided the offence for the ’Necks, while Grant scored both goals for the Mammoth.

Gallant scored early in the second to pull Colorado within a goal, before Dickson and Dobbie replied for the Riggers by counting goals 16 seconds apart.

After Snider scored at the 3:50 mark of the second, the two teams went more than seven minutes without a goal before Grant notched his third of the game.

Evans scored three more goals Calgary in the third quarter, while Snider counted his second of the contest as the Riggers built up an 11-8 lead heading into the final frame.

After Shattler scored to put the Riggers up by four, the Mammoth rallied with goals by Grant, McBride, Prout and Jones to knot the score at 12-12 with 1:20 left in the game. That set the stage for Pollock’s heroics in the extra session.

Next weekend, the ’Necks will play a rematch against the Mammoth in Denver on Friday before travelling to Philadelphia to play the Wings two days later.
