The Colorado Mammoth stayed atop the National Lacrosse League?s Eastern Division with a 19-13 win over the New York Saints tonight at Pepsi Center.

Del Halladay had seven goals and Gary Gait had six to lead the Mammoth (3-2) in scoring.

But the biggest news of the night may be the Mammoth crowd. A standing-room-only audience of 18,207 filled Pepsi Center ? increasing the Mammoth?s average attendance this season to a League-leading 16,978. Tonight?s crowd now ranks in the top 10 of the National Lacrosse League?s all-time attendance records.

?It?s almost like having a couple of extra players on the team when you?ve got a crowd like this behind you,? said coach Rod Jensen.

Gait led all scoring with nine points (7g, 2a) and leads the team in scoring for the season with 31 points. Two of his goals tonight came in the second quarter, 10 seconds apart.

Halladay followed with 7 goals. He has 14 goals on the season with a team-high seven goals in one game.

Ted Dowling scored the first goal of the game ? his only goal of the night, followed by three assists.

Tom Phair had five points (2g, 3a). Ben Prepchuk, newly acquired from the New York Saints, had one assist.

Forward Brian Langtry had two goals and one assist.

Defenseman John Rosa had one goal and two assists.

Jamie Hanford scored his first goal of the season and leads the team in face-off percentage.

Fred Jenner had two assists.

Goalie Erik Miller had an assist ? a full-field pass to Gary Gait.

Colorado improves to 3-2, maintaining first place in the Eastern division, while New York falls to 0-6. The two teams meet again next Thursday at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY.
