According to the National Lacrosse League website, the Calgary Roughnecks defeated the Rochester Knighthawks 11-10 at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary on Saturday night.

Dane Dobbie of Elora, Ontario led the Roughnecks' attack with three goals and five points.

The Roughnecks should be credited for having a tremendous comeback in the contest. They were down 5-1 after the first quarter before outscoring the Knighthawks 10-5 the rest of the way.

Another reason for the Roughnecks victory according to their team website, www.calgaryroughnecks.com, was their discipline and outstanding performance on special teams. Calgary only gave up one power play opportunity to Rochester and scored three power play goals themselves.

The Roughnecks won despite being outshot 49-43. With the win, Calgary improves their record to 5-3 and are 2.5 games back of the Western Division leading Edmonton Rush, who remain undefeated at 7-0.

Calgary's next game will be against the 4-4 Toronto Rock in Calgary on Saturday, March 1.
