The Calgary Roughnecks improved to 2-0 in their pre-season schedule following a 19-9 win over the Minnesota Swarm in a scrimmage held at the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre.

“We stuck to (Curt Malawsky's) keys to the game, which was running hard in transition, playing tough defence and staying out of the penalty box,” said transition player Geoff Snider, who scored two goals in the win. “When we do that, we are clean and are able to stick to our systems and execute a gameplan.”

Calgary jumped out to a 6-3 lead in a penalty filled first quarter, with Dane Dobbie leading the charge with two goals. Shawn Evans, Matthew Dinsdale, Daryl Veltman and Curtis Dickson rounded out the scoring.

Calgary expanded that lead in a perfect second stanza, scoring four goals, while shutting out the Swarm. Dobbie completed his hat trick, while Evans and Veltman found their second of the night. Jeff Shattler also got in on the action with a single marker.

“I thought defensively, we were really good and were nice and tight and had good support everywhere,” said assistant coach Bruce Codd.

Minnesota made a small cut into the deficit in the third quarter, but Calgary maintained a 12-6 lead heading into the final frame. Dinsdale and Brett Baron scored in the third.

The offense exploded in the final 15 minutes, with the Roughnecks firing seven goals into the Swarm net. Snider scored both of his tallies of the night, while Dobbie added goals four and five of his game. Dinsdale completed his hat trick, and Baron notched his second goal as well. Mike Carnegie rounded out the scoring.

Goalie Mike Poulin, Pete Dubenski and Frankie Scigliano all split action in the game.

The Roughnecks final scrimmage of the pre-season goes Sunday morning when they take on the Rochester Knighthawks at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena.

“There were a couple things, we took a few penalties where we are trying to get that stuff out of system now, so maybe a little bit more discipline but for the most part, I don’t think we need to change a whole lot for tomorrow,” said Codd.
