According to the National Lacrosse League website, the Calgary Roughnecks defeated the Philadelphia Wings 13-9 at the Wells Fargo Center in Pennsylvania on Friday night.

Shawn Evans led the Roughnecks with four assists and seven points, while Dane Dobbie notched four goals.

After a rather even first three quarters where the Wings had a slim 8-7 lead on the Roughnecks, Calgary dominated the fourth quarter by outscoring Philadelphia 6-1. Dobbie scored three of the Roughnecks goals in the final stanza--one goal even strength, one on the power play and the other came shorthanded with veteran teammate Geoff Snider in the penalty box for holding.

With the victory, the Roughnecks improve to 9-5 on the year and are firmly in second place in the National Lacrosse League's West Division.

The Roughnecks next play in Buffalo against the 8-5 Bandits on Saturday night. The game is special for the organization because it can be seen on television nationally throughout Canada on TSN2. The Roughnecks' next home game will be Saturday, April 12 against the Edmonton Rush.
