Mammoth Run Past Vancouver en route to 3rd Straight Victory

Sometimes, the NLL schedule can be brutal.

Friday night’s game in Vancouver ended with a Mammoth victory at 11:02pm local time. The team likely got to the hotel slightly before 1am Saturday morning. Mammoth players and staff then woke up just two hours later and packed the busses before heading to the airport to catch their flight. The team landed in Colorado at 10am(MT) and took the floor at the Pepsi Center just nine hours later to do it all over again against the same Vancouver Warriors team.

Mammoth Fall in Second Straight Game

It’s no secret that the Colorado Mammoth and Calgary Roughnecks don’t like each other. The rivalry between these two teams has nothing to do with geography, nor was it concocted at some league office for marketing purposes. This rivalry is old school. It’s based on history. Colorado and Calgary have met 43 times over the years. Nineteen of those meetings have been decided by one goal. Ten of those games have been decided in OT.

Oh and also, don’t forget that the Roughnecks were the ones that knocked Colorado out of the playoffs last year in the Western Division Semifinals. In today’s Sunday matinee, the teams faced each other for their first of three meetings this season.
