Mammoth Clinch Playoff Berth

Sunday, April 21, 2013
By Melissa Dafni

In the end, it didn’t matter if the Colorado Mammoth beat the Minnesota Swarm in their final regular season game of 2013. The Buffalo Bandits eliminated themselves from contention losing to Rochester, 10-9. The only thing left up in the air was who would play where. And with it such a tight race, that was [...]

Mammoth Never in it as Swarm Clinch Playoff Spot

Sunday, April 14, 2013
By Melissa Dafni

This was an important game for both the Colorado Mammoth as well as the Minnesota Swarm. In a very tightly contested playoff race, the winner would claim a spot in the playoffs. Now, I believe I’m correct in saying, only one playoff spot remains and whether or not they go is squarely on Colorado’s shoulders. [...]

Despite Scoreless 2nd Half, Mammoth Eek out Win

Sunday, March 31, 2013
By Melissa Dafni

As a fan, this is one of the most frustrating seasons I have had watching on the Colorado Mammoth. This team is completely bipolar from game to game, from half to half and some nights, even quarter to quarter. We get brilliant highlight reel worthy plays and goals followed by the inability to perform the [...]

Mammoth Shine Against Bandits

Sunday, March 17, 2013
By Melissa Dafni

After last week’s game ending brawl between several players on the Colorado Mammoth and the Buffalo Bandits, there was plenty of anticipation for round two. There was also plenty of curiosity as to who would actually play. For their participation in the altercations, Bandits David Brock, Nick Cotter, Jimmy Purves, Billy Dee Smith, and Mammoth [...]

An Unsportsmanlike Win

Sunday, March 10, 2013
By Melissa Dafni

When your team is on a losing streak, it can be very difficult as a fan. Sometimes, even when they win it can be difficult. The pair of back to back road trip games against the Toronto Rock and the Buffalo Bandits certainly frustrated me in numerous ways, and not necessarily how you might expect. [...]

Dan Lewis Shines Despite Mammoth Loss

Sunday, March 3, 2013
By Melissa Dafni

This is a difficult game to write about. If the Mammoth won, well, it’s against the last place team in the East, so is it a good barometer of them doing well, or just playing well against an equally struggling team. If the Mammoth lose, than they must be horrible because they played an equally [...]

Mammoth Drop Third Straight

Sunday, February 24, 2013
By Melissa Dafni

Although they showed glimmers of improvement, scoring nearly as many goals this game as they did the previous two, the Colorado Mammoth just could not pull out a win, falling to 2-5 as we move into the second half of the 2013 NLL season. Goal tending proved to be a big factor once again as [...]

Despite Controversy, Mammoth Dominate Swarm

Sunday, February 3, 2013
By Melissa Dafni

For some odd reason, the Colorado Mammoth have struggled to win the game during their Blackout Cancer promotional event. Despite a controversial call that could have easily derailed them, the Mammoth were successful both with the game as well as their fund raising, bringing in over $10,000 dollars for cancer research. The Mammoth continued to [...]

Calgary Roughs Up Mammoth

Sunday, January 27, 2013
By Melissa Dafni

It really has to make you wonder what’s in store for the evening when two long battling rivals are playing but the opposing team shows up at least 5 minutes late to the game. That’s not me being facetious, the Calgary Roughnecks actually showed up late to the game. So late in fact that they [...]

Mammoth Come From Behind to Win in OT

Sunday, January 20, 2013
By Melissa Dafni

In some sports, being down four goals with less than five minutes left to play is insurmountable. Indoor lacrosse is not one of those sports. In box lacrosse, no lead is truly safe until the final buzzer goes. Something the Calgary Roughnecks were reminded of by the Colorado Mammoth. As expected, Geoff Snider dominated in [...]
