COMING IN

The Riggers continue to be a dominant force in all aspects of the game. Riding a three-game win streak, the Roughnecks relied on solid goaltending from Matt King in their most recent victory, a 13-10 defeat of the Colorado Mammoth last Saturday at home.

After losing seven of their first nine games this season, the Rock is coming off back-to-back victories. The Rock beat the Rochester Knighthawks 16-10 last Saturday at home and, two weeks ago, got past the Boston Blazers 9-8 on the road.

HEAD-TO-HEAD

The Roughnecks manhandled the Rock at the ACC Jan. 17, posting a 16-9 win. Kaleb Toth led the charge for Calgary, potting thee goals and adding four assists. Last season, the teams split a two-game series, both winning at home. All-time, the Rock has the edge 10-6.
