According to the National Lacrosse League website, the Calgary Roughnecks defeated the Vancouver Stealth on Saturday by a score of 15-12 at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

Forward Shawn Evans led the Roughnecks in scoring with three goals and six assists or nine points. Other Roughnecks players who had solid games were Dane Dobbie (who had five goals and one assist), Daryl Veltman (who had three goals and two assists) and Jeff Shattler (who had two goals and three assists).

The Roughnecks bounced nicely back after being thumped by the Edmonton Rush 15-8 on Friday night. With the win, Calgary improves to 2-2 in the standings and will next play the Colorado Mammoth on January 25 also in Calgary.

The Roughnecks-Stealth contest was one of two meetings between Calgary and Vancouver on Saturday night. In Vancouver, the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Calgary Flames 3-2 on a two-point night by Ryan Kesler (a goal and an assist) and a shootout winner from Chris Higgins. This game however will historically be remembered by Vancouver head coach John Tortorella's altercation outside the Flames' locker room after a brawl on the ice to start the game.
