According to the Canadian Press on Sunday, the Saskatchewan Rush beat the Calgary Roughnecks 12-11 at the Scotiabank Saddledome in National Lacrosse League action. Zack Greer of Whitby, Ontario scored the game winning goal for the Rush at 5:04 of overtime.
In what has been the biggest story for the Roughnecks this season–they have simply been incapable of protecting the lead. The Roughnecks had an 8-2 lead in the second quarter, but were unable to win the game.
Robert Church of Coquitlam, British Columbia led the Rush offensively with six points. He had three goals and three assists. Curtis Knight of Oshawa, Ontario also had a hat trick for Saskatchewan.
Mark Matthews of Oshawa led the Rush with 15 shots on goal. Jeremy Thompson of Akwesasne, Ontario led the Rush with 12 loose balls.
With the win, the Rush improve to five wins and three losses. They are in second place in the West Division, a game and a half back of the Colorado Mammoth, who came back to beat the Vancouver Stealth 11-10 on Saturday. The Roughnecks fall to three wins and six losses and are in the basement in the West Division. Calgary next hosts the Rochester Knighthawks on March 5.
