A Saskatchewan loss at New England on Friday opened the door for the Colorado Mammoth to establish a one-game lead in the West Division, but Pat Coyle’s squad was unable to take advantage. Colorado allowed a season-high 17 goals to Georgia in the team’s inaugural visit to The Peach State in a seven-goal defeat Sunday.

“It’s really disappointing,” said Coyle postgame. “I give them credit for their game-plan. I thought they did a good job trying to cut the middle and getting the ball in the middle. We knew that was coming and we didn’t stick to our game-plan. We had a lot of passengers today, a lot of guys just standing and watching. When that happens, it’s not going to go well for us.”

The Mammoth played its second-straight game without John Grant, Jr., Jeremy Noble and Dillon Ward. The Swarm outscored the Mammoth 11-3 in the second and third quarters combined.

Colorado’s Adam Jones led all players with four goals, the last of which was his 100th power-play point of his career. Callum Crawford finished with one goal and seven assists, extending his NLL lead to 67 helpers this year. The total ties a Mammoth single-season record originally set by Gavin Prout in 2008.

The loss was Colorado’s first of the season to an East Division opponent, dropping the team’s record to 10-4 overall, tied with Saskatchewan and Buffalo for best in the league.
