From Press Release

Matt Rambo (La Salle, Springside Chestnut Hill Academy assistant coach) scored with 1.8 seconds to play to lift the visiting Philadelphia Wings to a stunning 8-7 victory Saturday night over defending NLL champion Calgary.

Philadelphia came out strong as Rambo and Brett Hickey put them up 2-0 before Tyson Bell answered for Calgary. The Roughnecks went on a three-goal late in the first, but the Wings tied at 4-4 heading into the second when Trevor Baptiste scored his first career NLL goal. From the second through the third, each team kept answering each other and both goalies really stepped up, stopping practically anything in their way.

The Roughnecks (2-2) fell in their second of two games this weekend. Calgary got back home about an hour before the game and took a delay of game minor to start the game.

Goals by Cory Vitarelli and Kevin Crowley (Shipley assistant coach, Fusion Co-Founder) gave the Wings a 7-6 edge, but Dan Taylor tied it for the Roughnecks with 8:36 to play before Rambo’s heroics won it.

Philadelphia was led by Crowley with seven points (3G/4A) while Rambo also had three points (2G/1A). Curtis Dickson (Delaware) had four points (3G/1A) to lead Calgary, and Taylor also had three points (2G/1A) in the loss.

Zach Higgins made 48 saves off of 55 shots on goal for Philadelphia. Christian Del Bianco made 47 saves off of 55 shots on goal for Calgary.
