Buffalo Travels to Calgary For Week 19 Tilt

The Calgary Roughnecks are back on home turf tonight for Fan Appreciation Night, presented by Vision Travel, to face the Buffalo Bandits. Game time is 7:00 p.m. MT with $5 Rough House food and beverage specials beginning at 5:30 p.m.  The Roughnecks will be donating the proceeds from tonight’s 50/50 draw to help those affected by the Humboldt Broncos tragedy. Calgary is coming off last Sunday’s 13-12 overtime upset against the New England Black Wolves. Early on, the teams kept it close, the Roughnecks with a 6-5 advantage heading into the halftime break. Stephan Leblanc netted a goal for New England just seven seconds left in regulation to force the game into overtime. Black Wolves forward Johnny Powless scored the overtime winner 47 seconds into the extra session. Wesley Berg (3g, 5a) led the Roughnecks with eight points while Dane Dobbie was next with seven and Holden Cattoni tallied five, all scoring a trio of goals for the visiting team. The Buffalo Bandits last saw action on Saturday, Apr. 7 when they defeated the New England Black Wolves 14-11. The Bandits have won six of their last ten games and are on a two-game winning streak.
