The Roughnecks flew all the way across the country to play Saturday, but the result was still a victory, as they came back to defeat the Thunderbirds 12-11 in Halifax.

After a back and forth game that Dan Taylor tied up in the final seconds, Jeff Cornwall scored on a breakaway nine seconds into overtime to give the Roughnecks the win.

Zach Currier had a hat trick, while Cornwall, Haiden Dickson and Tanner Cook each had two goals. Roughnecks captain Jesse King had four assists.

The Roughnecks head home for a pair of weekend contests, Friday against Saskatchewan and Colorado on Saturday.

The Roughnecks are 4-3 on the season, with 11 games remaining.
