SUPERMAN HEROIC IN OT

CALGARY, AB -- Curtis ‘Superman’ Dickson scored 21 seconds into overtime to lead the Calgary Roughnecks to a wild 12-11 win over the Colorado Mammoth on Saturday night.

The Riggers trailed 7-2 late in the second quarter before mounting a furious comeback to send the 9,493 fans at the Scotiabank Saddledome home happy.

“Coach Curt (Malawsky) kicked our butts a bit and kind of picked us up,” said Dickson, who finished the game with four goals and an assist. “Obviously it worked. We came out and played a lot better and came away with the win.”

Dickson credited his teammates for bailing him out when he took what could have been a costly slashing penalty late in the fourth quarter with his team trailing 10-9.

When he got out of the penalty box, Dickson scored twice in 30 seconds to put the Riggers up 11-10 before Colorado’s Sean Pollock notched the equalizer with just 37.9 seconds left in regulation.

“Unfortunately they came back and tied it,” Dickson said. “We refocused going into overtime and we were able to put the ball in the net there in the first possession.”

Shawn Evans had three goals and seven helpers to pace Calgary’s offensive attack.

“We dug deep and we worked hard and came out with the win – a good team win,” said Evans.

Dane Dobbie scored twice and set up four others, while Jeff Shattler had a goal and two assists. Geoff Snider and Scott Ranger also scored.

Netminder Mike Poulin stopped 32 of 43 shots he faced to help the ’Necks improve their record to 7-5 to move into a three-way tie with the Edmonton Rush and Washington Stealth for first place in the NLL’s West Division.

“We knew that was a huge game,” Evans said. “If we lose that game, they’re one game behind us and then it’s a battle to make playoffs.”

Veteran Colorado forward John Grant Jr. led the Mammoth (4-8) with three goals and three helpers, while Pollock finished with a hat trick and a helper. Jordan McBride scored twice and set up five others, while Adam Jones, Jamie Lincoln and Reid Creighton also scored for Colorado.

Dobbie scored the opening goal of the game at 2:50 of the first quarter on a power play before the Mammoth reeled off four straight goals to take a 4-1 lead by 3:05 of the second quarter.

Snider then scored 23 seconds later to pull the ’Necks within a pair before the Mammoth fired three straight goals to take a 7-2 lead.

“Coming off the bye week, there was a little bit of rust early,” said Roughnecks assistant coach Bruce Codd. “We stuck with the game plan and showed a lot of character pulling that one out.”

Evans then replied for the Riggers by scoring on a two-man advantage with 28.3 seconds remaining in the first half.

With Colorado’s Rory Smith still in the penalty box serving a five-minute major for roughing that he took late in the first half, Ranger and Evans notched power-play goals for Calgary early in the third quarter.

Jones and Dickson traded goals before McBride scored his second goal of the game to put the Mammoth up 9-6.

Dobbie then scored late in the third before Evans notched his hat-trick goal 25 seconds into the fourth quarter to pull the Riggers within a goal.

Pollock and Shattler then traded goals before Dickson atoned for his untimely penalty by scoring the final three goals of the game for Calgary to give the Riggers the thrilling victory.

Next up, the Roughnecks will head out on the road to play the Stealth in Everett, Wash., on Saturday, March 30. They’ll then return home to the ’Dome for a rematch against Washington one week later on April 6.
