Looking to swat the Swarm.

The Roughnecks look to get back in the win column Friday in Georgia (5:30 p.m. MT on TSN+).

The Riggers (5-6) sit in the final playoff spot in the league after they had their three-game winning streak snapped last weekend with an 11-9 loss in Philadelphia. Tyler Pace led the way with a hat-trick and four points.

The Georgia Swarm (7-6) are in fifth in the NLL and took out Halifax 12-11 last weekend paced by Lyle Thompson’s four-goal, two-assist performance.

Zach Currier is 13 loose balls away from 1,100 in his career, while Tanner Cook needs two points to hit 150.

This is the only regular-season meeting between Georgia and the ’Necks. The last time these two teams faced-off it was an 18-17 victory for the Roughnecks in Georgia on Feb. 22, 2020.
