Roughnecks Edge Warriors in Overtime

Calgary 10, Vancouver 9 (F/OT)

CALGARY – Roughnecks captain Curtis Dickson scored 31 seconds into overtime to edge the Vancouver Warriors 10-9 before 7958 fans in the Foothill City.

 

Dickson was able to snag his original shot wide and sneak a shot past Vancouver goalie Alex Buque on the first possession in sudden death.

 

Vancouver fought back the entire game, erasing deficits of 5-1 and 7-4 to tie the game 7-7 after three quarters.  Kyle Killen gave the Warriors their first lead of the night at 8:36 of the 4th quarter to make the game 8-7, but two quick Calgary goals forced Vancouver to play catch up once more.  Marty Dinsdale bulged the twine with 4:11 to play to send the game to the extra session.

 

The Warriors had two goals and three assists from both Logan Schuss and Keegan Bal to lead all Vancouver scorers with five points.  Marty Dinsdale also bagged a pair for the visitors, with Killen and rookies Reid Bowering and Adam Charalambides rounding out the Vancouver scoresheet.

 

Alex Buque turned aside 34 shots in the loss which sees Vancouver, now 6-8 on the season, fall into a 4th place tie with Panther City and Philadelphia for the Wild Card playoff position in the West.

 

Vancouver now returns back to Rogers Arena for the second half of their weekend double header, facing the Albany Fire Wolves tomorrow.  Game time will be at 7 PM.
