Win some, lose some

Calgary Roughnecks head coach Chris Hall, shaking his head, summed it up best. "There was a bit of tragedy in our triumph tonight," he said last night.

In a surprise move, Calgary welcomed back co-defensive player of the year and rookie of the year Taylor Wray from a broken ankle he suffered in December.

But the club may have lost fellow defender Andy Ogilvie for the season.

Wray helped the Roughnecks improve to 4-2 on the season as they defeated their arch-rivals, the Colorado Mammoth, 18-16 before a boisterous Saddledome crowd.

That crowd, however, fell silent when Calgary defender Andy Ogilvie slumped on the carpet six minutes into the second quarter.

Ogilvie, the team's prize off-season free-agent acquisition, was injured when teammate Andrew McBride fell into his left leg and rolled over his knee.

After writhing on the carpet in obvious pain, Ogilvie was helped to the locker-room and didn't return to the game.

Hall said Ogilvie's injury is serious -- potentially season-ending -- but they'll have to wait until the swelling goes down for team doctors to look at it.

"It's not looking good," said Hall. "We get T-Wray back which looked huge for us and then we lose Oggie, which is tough."

Ogilvie was unavailable for comment after the game but he told Sportsnet he believed his season is over. As for Wray, the Edmonton product was cleared to play yesterday and drew back into the lineup.

"It could have been better," said Wray. "I still feel I have a ways to go but I definitely feel I can contribute or I wouldn't be out there."
