EDMONTON —The Calgary Roughnecks not only locked down top spot in the National
Lacrosse League on Saturday night, they earned a first-round opponent they have
historically dominated in the Edmonton Rush. Andy Dalton Womens Jersey . Shawn Evans had
four goals and added an assist as the Roughnecks clinched first place in the NLL
and home dates throughout the playoffs with a 9-6 victory over the Rush on
Saturday. Jeff Shattler and Nolan Heavenor each had two goals and Dane Dobbie
also scored for the Roughnecks (12-4), who closed out the regular season with
seven wins in their last eight games. Coming off a disappointing 14-12 loss in
Rochester where they also had a chance to clinch first overall, Calgary head
coach Dave Pym was happy to see how his team responded in their second chance.
“Any time you drop a game in this league it is important to rebound to show that
you can still play with confidence,” he said. “I thought our guys did a great
job of regrouping and focusing on the task at hand. I thought we played our
defensive game as well as we have all year. Offensively we kept on battling
until we were finally able to capitalize when it mattered most. We got some huge
goals.” Evans feels home field advantage through the playoffs is a huge deal.
“Its huge for our fans and for our city to earn that home playoff berth,” he
said. “It was a tough loss for us last weekend but we pulled together and won
the game as a unit. I think we just tired them out in the fourth and were able
to come out with the win.” Kyle Rubisch, Aaron Wilson, Tom Johnson, Brett
Mydske, Shawn Williams and Ryan Ward replied for the Rush (6-9), who had a
two-game winning streak snapped but had already secured a playoff spot on Friday
night with a victory over Colorado. “I felt we had a good effort,” said Rush
head coach Derek Keenan. “At times we played too fast, other times we played too
slow, which equals poor execution. Without (injured forward Zack Greer), hes one
guy who can break down defences, but weve got other good players too. He was
missed and hopefully we get him back next week.” The two Alberta-based teams
will meet next meet in the first round of the playoffs, a strong scenario for
the Roughnecks who have swept their four-game series with Edmonton each of the
last two seasons. “Despite whatever record the Rush have, they are a very, very
good team,” Pym said. “They are going to be a handful in the first round of the
playoffs. We are going to have to play better than we did tonight.” Some very
strong goaltending to start the game from both Calgarys Frankie Scigliano and
Edmontons Aaron Bold almost resulted in a scoreless first quarter—unheard of
in the NLL. But with less than a second remaining Rubisch intercepted a pass and
fired it the length of the field, catching the Roughnecks gambling with an extra
man on the field and an empty net. It was the latest opening goal in league
history. Calgary bounced back with a pair of quick power-play goals by Evans
early in the second quarter to lead 2-1. Wilson tied the game up for the Rush
with just over five minutes to play in the second frame before Dobbie made it
3-2 for Calgary to make for a still rather scant 3-2 score at the half. It took
nearly 10 minutes into the third before another goal came in the low-scoring
affair as Johnson scored for Edmonton, surprisingly followed mere seconds later
by a response from Calgarys Shattler to make it 4-3 Riggers. Calgary went up by
two goals on a scoring strike by Heavenor with just over a minute left in the
third, but Williams responded with just three seconds left for the Rush to make
it 5-4 heading into the final 15 minutes. The Roughnecks got a beautiful goal
four minutes into the fourth as Heavenor grabbed a ball in mid-leap and put it
past Bold before hitting the ground. However, Edmonton quickly responded on a
two-man power play goal by Ward. Calgary started to take over the game midway
through the fourth with a pair of power play goals—Shattlers second of the
game, followed by Evans hat-trick goal to make it 8-5. The Roughnecks gave
themselves some extra padding with their third goal in just over two minutes
when Evans scored his fourth of the game. Edmonton got one back off of the stick
of Mydske with three minutes remaining to close out the scoring. Calgary is off
until the playoffs, when they will host of the Western semifinal game against
Edmonton on May 5. Edmonton still has one regular season contest to play,
hosting the Toronto Rock next Saturday. Notes: The lacrosse version of the
Battle of Alberta has gone in Calgarys favour since Edmonton joined the NLL.
Calgary now has a 20-4 all-time record over the Rush … The Rush were without
leading scorer Zack Greer after taking a cross-check to the head near the end of
Fridays victory over the Colorado Mammoth… Calgary G Mike Poulin missed his

Right-hander Brad Penny is getting another shot with San Francisco. Penny signed
a minor league contract with the Giants on Friday as a candidate to help in the
bullpen down the road. Penny, who briefly pitched for the Giants down the down
the stretch in 2009 and went 4-1 with a 2.59 ERA in six starts, is scheduled to
report to extended spring training in Arizona on Monday. He threw a bullpen
session Friday afternoon at AT&T Park for Giants general manager Brian
Sabean, manager Bruce Bochy and pitching coach Dave Righetti. Bochy said Penny
needs to get back into baseball shape and would report to Triple-A Fresno when
he is ready to pitch regularly. But the plan is for him eventually to be back in
the big leagues, as a reliever who can help out starting if needed. Bochy said
the Giants medical staff examined Penny, who was deemed healthy. “He has to get
back in shape. He needs to be to help us at some point,” Bochy said. “We signed
him to be here. Hes fine. Hes healthy. He showed us that in the bullpen.” The
33-year-old Penny went 11-11 with a 5. Geno Atkins Jersey. .30 ERA and 74 strikeouts
in 31 starts last season for Detroit. He signed in February with the Japan
Pacific Leagues Softbank Hawks, going 0-1 with a 10.08 ERA in one start before
getting released earlier this month. “Things didnt work out in Japan,” Bochy
said. “Ive had Brad before. Its always nice to have a guy like Penny whos
available. We know what he did for us last time we saw him.” Penny has a 119-99
career record in 12 major league seasons with Florida, the Dodgers, Boston, San
Francisco, St. Louis and the Tigers. In late August 2009, the Giants signed
Penny to a minor league contract for the stretch run after he was released by
the Red Sox. That winter, Sabean acknowledged San Francisco made a one-year
offer with incentives to Penny but the free agent declined to accept the deal.
Then, he received a $7.5 million, one-year contract with St. Louis and went 3-4
with a 3.23 ERA in nine starts for the Cardinals in 2010 but missed most of the
year with a back injury. ’ ’ ’
