ROCK LOSE 12-9 TO COLORADO IN EXHIBITION
Hickey Continues To Fill The Net In Pre-Season
Oakville, ON – After seemingly being in control for three quarters, the Rock gave up seven straight goals and fell 12-9 to the Colorado Mammoth at the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre in Oakville, Ontario on Saturday night. The loss drops the Rock’s exhibition record to 1-1, with one pre-season game remaining.
After scoring five goals in the Rock’s opening pre-season game, Brett Hickey continued his torrid scoring pace in preparation for the season by scoring three times in the opening 15 minutes. The Rock held a 5-3 lead after one quarter.
The second quarter was a back and forth affair, with the two teams trading goals. Hickey added his fourth of the game while Jesse Gamble scored the other Rock goal as the Rock maintained a two-goal edge, 7-5 at the half.
The Rock scored the opening two goals of the third quarter as Stephan Leblanc and Colin Doyle each found the mark from long range. Callum Crawford had the lone Mammoth goal as the Rock stretched their lead to 9-6 at the end of three quarters.
Colorado scored twice early in the fourth quarter to change the flavour of the game as the Rock led by just a goal, 9-8. Joey Cupido finished in tight to even the score 9-9 just under four minutes into the fourth quarter. The Mammoth didn’t stop there, as they tacked on three more goals and shutout the Rock in the fourth quarter.
Rock goal scorers were Hickey (4), Lintner (1), Leblanc (1), Aquin (1), Gamble (1), Doyle (1).
The Rock will play one more pre-season game against the Georgia Swarm on Saturday, December 19th at 7 p.m. also at the TRAC.
