According to the National Lacrosse League website, the Edmonton Rush easily defeated the Calgary Roughnecks 15-7 Friday night at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary.

Despite getting off to a good start as the Roughnecks opened the scoring on a goal by Curtis Dickson at exactly the one minute mark of the first quarter, the Roughnecks gave up six consecutive first half goals to the unbeaten Rock.

With the victory, Edmonton improves to a National Lacrosse League best 10-0. They are the first team in NLL history to win their first ten regular season games.

A major reason for the Rush success Friday was the play of Cory Conway, who had two goals and three assists to lead the Rush with five points. The Rush also dominated the shots on goal category, as they outshot the Roughnecks 62-34.

With the loss, Calgary drops to 6-5 and are firmly in second place in the Western Division. They will next play in Vancouver on Friday against the Stealth, with their next home game against the Minnesota Swarm on March 29.
