Richards Saves 51 as Stealth Stop Mammoth

Continuing as it had all night, Washington continued to apply pressure on Colorado, holding the Mammoth to just four goals through the 7:24 mark.

In the end, Colorado put two more on the Stealth to make it 12-6 before rookie Mitch McMichael tallied the final Washington score with 30 seconds remaining to make it 13-6. The goal was his fourth on the season.

"We new something was different after walking off the floor last night," said McMichael. "We went harder and had much more intensity and focus."

Washington's big three again dominated the opposition with Iannucci leading all scorers with a goal and five assists for six points, Duch scoring three goals and two assists and Ratcliff finishing with a single goal and four assists for five points. Smith and Bucktooth both netted two goals and two assists for four points.

For the Mammoth, Adam Jones led the way with two goals and two assists for four points. Roik took the loss after facing 42 shots.

DENVER Goaltender Tyler Richards and the Washington Stealth continued to be a thorn in the side for the Colorado Mammoth. Behind a 51-save effort from Richards, who improved to 8-0 lifetime against Colorado, the Stealth defeated the Mammoth, 13-6, on Saturday night at Comcast Arena in Everett, Wash.

"He was really good tonight," said Mammoth head coach Bob Hamley, referring to Richards. "We've got to shoot down the pipes, and we didn't shoot the ball very well tonight. Our power-play was not good."

Fresh off a home win and a season-high 15 goals scored a week ago, Colorado outshot Washington, 57-42, on Saturday. But it wasn't nearly enough.

The Mammoth's lone highlights were 1st-round draft pick Colton Clark's behind-the-back goal in the 1st quarter in his NLL debut, and transition player Joey Cupido's first-career tally.

Colorado returns home next Saturday, February 16, to take on the Edmonton Rush on Military Appreciation Night at 7:00 pm MST.
