VANCOUVER BC – Dillon Ward turned aside 41 shots while Ryan Lee bagged four goals and seven points to lead the Colorado Mammoth over the Vancouver Warriors 11-7 in a key West Division matchup at Rogers Arena on Friday night.
Ward overcame a shaky start, giving up two goals on his first two shots faced, and stoned Vancouver in the fourth quarter, not allowing a single Warriors tally in the final 15 minutes.
Lee scored three goals in the opening half and tallied the final goal of the evening to send Colorado on to victory.
Logan Schuss scored three goals in the loss for Vancouver, who also had goals from Mitch Jones, Justin Salt, James Rahe and Keegan Bal.
With the win, the Mammoth jump past Vancouver into 4th place in the West and now hold the final playoff spot in the NLL West Division playoffs. The same two teams get right back at it Saturday night in Denver. Opening faceoff will be just after 6 PM Pacific.
