National League Lacrosse: Colorado Mammoth Defeat Minnesota Swarm 20-14 In Season Opener As John Grant Jr. Scores 4 Goals With 7 Assists
After his No. 6 was raised to the Pepsi Center rafters before the game, the recently-retired forward predicted to the fans that Colorado would win by three. Close enough, according to teammates.
“Did he say three? That’s it?” Mammoth captain Gavin Prout quipped. “He obviously has no confidence in this team. But seriously, we had about 18 or 19 Brian Langtrys running around out there tonight.”
Before a small-but-enthusiastic crowd undoubtedly reduced because of the Broncos-Patriots game, the Mammoth broke a five-game losing streak to the Swarm with one of the finest offensive outbursts in team annals.
The game was a back-and-forth battle from the start. The teams traded goals throughout the first quarter as the score was tied at three after fifteen minutes of action.
Duch completed his first half hat trick in the opening minute of the second quarter to make it 4-3. Curtis Manning answered with the first of two goals on the night to knot the score once again, but Jeff Zywicki had the last word of the half with 1:45 left in the second quarter to give the Stealth a 5-4 lead at the break.
The third quarter saw the momentum shift in the Roughnecks favor. Within the first two minutes and twelve seconds of the second half, Calgary netted three goals to take a 7-5 lead. They wouldn’t trail again. Lewis Ratcliff scored the Stealth’s only goal of the third, and the Roughnecks took a 8-6 lead into the final stanza.
