The Calgary Roughnecks topped the Edmonton Rush, 10-5, in preseason action on Saturday in Red Deer.
The Roughnecks dressed their A-team in the first half and roared out to a 7-2 lead. Pat Campbell allowed just two goals in the first half, while Matt King held the Rush to three in the second.
Dane Dobbie, Jeff Shattler, Josh Sanderson and Scott Ranger each scored two goals, while Kaleb Toth and Cayle Ratcliff added singles.
The Edmonton Rush and Calgary Roughnecks have announced plans to face off in an exhibition game on Saturday, December 13th at the Enmax Centre in Red Deer, Alberta. The rivals will meet three times during the 2009 regular season, and this preseason battle in a town that sits halfway between the two cities should get this year's edition of the rivalry off to a fast start.
