Buffalo Tops Toronto, Calgary Edges Colorado in Friday Action

"[Dillon] did it again he gave us a chance!" said Hamley. "That's all we can ask of him in that situation."

After Colorado started the game with two quick goals from Drew Westervelt and Joel Dalgarno, Calgary responded with four straight. The Mammoth took a 5-4 lead on a Sean Pollock power-play tally 2:17 into the second, only to see the Roughnecks answer with five of their own.

"We got off to a decent start, and then fell behind on their transition goals," said Westervelt. "We got away from what was working for us early."

Brothers Bob (Colorado) and Geoff (Calgary) Snider competed head-to-head at the face-off circle for much of the night. Bob won 14 of 27 attempts; Geoff recorded 14 wins on 26 draws.

"Geoff's the top guy in the league and has been for a bit," said Bob. "I've honed my skills to try to compete with him. He and I usually have good battles."

Following an empty-net goal by Geoff Snider to boost Calgary's lead to 13-9 with 2:24 left in regulation, Colorado made it interesting with scores from Adam Jones and Jordan McBride. For the Mammoth, the final horn came too soon.

Pollock led Colorado with his second hat-trick of the season. Grant, Jones and Westervelt had two goals apiece. Dalgarno and McBride had the other goals for the visitors.

Dane Dobbie and Jeff Shattler paced Calgary with four goals each.

The Mammoth takes on the Edmonton Rush at Rexall Place on Saturday night at 7:00 pm MT. The game will be broadcast live online on The Lacrosse Network on YouTube, and will air on delay on television on Altitude Sports.
