The 2018-19 Calgary Roughnecks are NLL Cup Champions!

Rhys Duch came in clutch, scoring the overtime winner, giving the Roughnecks the 14-13 win over the Buffalo Bandits to secure the team’s third-ever championship.

In front of packed house at the Scotiabank Saddledome, the Riggers delivered in the biggest of moments and were thrilled to do so for their home town crowd.

“We had almost 19,000 here tonight and the roof almost blew off of this place,” said NLL Cup Finals MVP Dane Dobbie. “It’s just unbelievable to play in front of. As a kid, it’s something you dream of and you constantly keep dreaming of it. You want to be in that Game 7, you want to be in that overtime game, and you want a chance to win it.

“Tonight, we did it. This is what we live for, this is a fantastic feeling.”
