On Friday, April 14 the Seals fell to the Colorado Mammoth 14-15 at Ball Arena in Denver in one of the most intense games of the season. It was full throttle the entire game and had everything fans could ask for. High scores, fighting, power plays, comebacks, and some of the best lacrosse players in the world. Despite the Seals loss, it was one for the books.

The lead changed 6 times throughout the game, there were 61 minutes of penalties, and 10 power play goals between the 2 teams as they went back and forth on huge runs to keep the game close. The Seals put up a massive 14 points, with Wes Berg bagging 6 goals on the night, and teammates Austin Staats and Dane Dobbie each finishing with a hat trick. But it was the Mammoth that managed to come out on top with Eli McLaughlin and Connor Robinson also finishing with hat tricks.

The first quarter finished with a 6-3 Seals lead, and the second was dominated by Colorado, coming back to take the lead with a 7-8 score at half. The third saw great offensive displays from both teams, with Colorado still in the lead 11-13 going into the fourth where it came down to the wire.

The Seals took the lead back early in the fourth with 3 consecutive goals as fans watched the physical battle between these two teams continue. Seals Captain Brodie Merrill was ejected from the game with a major high sticking penalty, and a scary moment on the field unfolded when Mammoth Forward Evan Downey took a heavy hit from Seals defenseman Danny Logan. It’s one of those moments no one wants to see happen. The game paused with 4 minutes left for Downey to be treated, but he left the field with a high five from Logan and a huge applause from fans. Everyone hopes for a quick recovery from Downey to be back for the rivalry rematch in 2 weeks.

After the Seals run in the beginning of the fourth, Colorado Forward Eli McLaughlin bagged two more for the Colorado lead. But the game still wasn’t over. It came down to the wire, or should we say cross bar, when Seals Forward Austin Staats ripped a shot with under 5 seconds and hit the post. Fans were inches away from witnessing an epic overtime finish, but the ball ricocheted off the goal post and the game was over.

The Colorado Mammoth playoff hopes stay alive, and the Seals have one word: Rematch. In just 2 weeks, the Mammoth return to San Diego on April 29th for the classic rivalry rematch in the last regular season game and fans can get their tickets right HERE.
