On a night when Mammoth forward Callum Crawford became the second player in team history to reach 100 points in a season, Saskatchewan once again had Colorado’s number. The Rush defeated the Mammoth for the second consecutive night – this time an 11-8 final in Saskatoon – to lock up the West Division.

With the game tied at six early in the third quarter, the Rush scored five times in less than four minutes to put the game away.

“It was a bad time for a lull for us – they went on a run,” said Mammoth coach Dan Stroup. “I’m proud of the guys, they didn’t quit. Obviously the weekend didn’t go the way that we wanted it to, but we know where we are now. We know where we sit for the playoffs.”

The Mammoth (10-6) will enter the postseason as the number-two seed in the West Division for the second-straight season. Colorado will host the West Division Semifinal on Saturday, May 7 at 7:00pm MDT on HealthONE Field at Pepsi Center.

Forward Jeremy Noble led the Mammoth with three goals, his first hat-trick of the season.

“A lot of credit goes to my teammates for helping me get open and getting me the ball,” said Noble.

The second-year man joined Crawford (1g, 4a) with a team-high five points. Crawford extended his league-leading assist total to 72.

Colorado returns to Pepsi Center for the final two games of the regular season.
