MAMMOTH REMATCH
The Roughnecks will try to make it 2-0 versus their West Division rivals.

The Calgary Roughnecks (2-2) may have already handed the Colorado Mammoth (1-5) a loss this season, and the Mammoth may have a league-leading five defeats, but the Roughnecks are not overlooking their opponents this weekend down at the ‘Dome.

“By no means are they a 1-5 team,” opined head coach Curt Malawsky. “They’ve very, very dangerous. We’re not taking them lightly by any means. They’ve got so much power up front.

“They’ve added Athan (Ianucci) and added the big guy in the back end (Mike) McNamara.

“They’re a lot different team than we saw a couple weeks ago. Looking at them on film, they’re a team to be reckoned with. We’re going to have our hands full and we’re going to do our best to prepare for them.”

During their last matchup, the Roughnecks used a strong second quarter to jump out to a four-goal lead they would ride for the rest of the game. The final score was 13-11, with Jeff Shattler and Dane Dobbie firing four goals each in the victory.

Contrary to most seasons, the Roughnecks have had success on home turf.

In both games at the ‘Dome, Calgary has controlled the play on way to back-to-back victories, including a 15-12 win over the Vancouver Stealth last weekend.

“Last game was good for us,” Malawsky said. “We got taught a lesson up in Edmonton, so it was a bit of a character gut check for our guys to see how we’d bounce back.

“I was proud of the way the guys competed and the guys battled. I think we got our offence back on track.

“Evy had a big night and Daryl Veltman got himself going again and scored some big goals at key times in the game.

Dane Dobbie and Jeff Shattler have been our consistent guys all year.”

Game time is 7 p.m. at the Scotiabank Saddledome with tickets still available.
