CALGARY, Alberta — The Washington Stealth secured its third postseason berth in four years with a comeback 12-11 National Lacrosse League road victory against the Calgary Roughnecks on Saturday night before 10,008 at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary.

Washington forward Rhys Duch scored the winning goal with 2:45 remaining after the Stealth's Dean Hill tied the game just a minute before.

With the win, the Stealth (8-6) took the season series with the Roughnecks and locked in the postseason tiebreaker. It was Washington's first win in Calgary since its West Division championship victory in 2011.

The victory made Stealth head coach Chris Hall the fourth NLL coach to reach 80 career wins.

The Stealth play Saturday against the Buffalo Bandits for the first of its two remaining regular-season games, both at home. Game time at Comcast Arena is 6:45 p.m.
