Dallas seized the momentum in the second quarter when Dillion Larberg blocked a pass then scored on the offensive end on a tipped disc. Dylan Freechild and Dan Emmons connected on the huck for another score and then the rally was on as the Roughnecks built a 20-15 lead. After winning the first quarter 11-10, the Cascades were outplayed in the second 10-4.
The Roughnecks’ offense got better throughout the game and never let up. Seattle rallied in the fourth quarter but Dallas’ five goal lead was too much to overcome.
