In their first game home in a month, the Colorado Mammoth unleashed a mile-high attack on “303 Day,” routing the Calgary Roughnecks 18-9.
Ten seems to be the magic number for the Mammoth, as they improved to 6-1 on the season when scoring 10+ goals. After a 8-6 lead at halftime, thanks in part to Eli McLaughlin’s first-half hat trick. Callum Crawford fueled a second-half surge and one-upped McLaughlin with a sock trick for the Mammoth, finishing the day as the No. 1 star of the game.

Wearing special “303 Day” jerseys to commemorate the area code of Denver, the Mammoth offensive attack was simply relentless, pounding at Calgary for a season high in goals as a team. Not only did they look good, but they played even better.

Mammoth newcomer Stephen Keogh, recently acquired in a trade from the Rochester Knighthawks, netted a hat trick in his Pepsi Center debut and finished as the night’s third star. Eli McLaughlin also nabbed a hat trick of his own, finishing the night with four goals and the honors of second star of the night. While offense was the clear highlight of the night, goalie Dillon Ward’s performance of 50 saves on 59 shots, should not go overlooked.
The Mammoth improve their record to 6-4 and will be back at Pepsi Center for a matchup against the Vancouver Stealth on March 12th.
