After falling from the top spot last week, the Colorado Mammoth are once again at the head of the list of ILIndoor.com’s power rankings for Week 9.

Colorado moved up from the second slot following its 16-13 win over Buffalo on Saturday night. League scoring leader John Grant Jr. became the third player in NLL history with 500 career goals and added five assists to complete a nine-point game.

The Mammoth improved to a league-best 7-1, and have a home-and-home series with last-place Washington starting Saturday night in Denver.

The Calgary Roughnecks, who scored 21 goals while handing Colorado its first loss of 2012 on Feb. 24, dropped to No. 2. The Roughnecks failed to build their biggest win of the season, falling 15-11 to Minnesota on Saturday.

Calgary will face Edmonton twice this weekend as the Battle of Alberta series resumes Friday night at Rexall Place before shifting south to the Scotiabank Saddledome.

With their win over the weekend, the Swarm jumped up two spots to rank third this week. Minnesota has gone 2-0 while outscoring its opponents 30-18 since Joe Sullivan took over for Mike Lines as head coach last month.

Minnesota, which is idle this week, will resume its season-high four-game road trip on March 17 in Buffalo.
