SETTIN’ IT UP
First place is on the line in San Diego.
The Roughnecks (10-4) head to California to take on the Seals (10-3) Friday night at 8 p.m. in a battle for top spot in the West.
This is the third-and-final meeting between these teams this regular season. Calgary and San Diego have split the series so far.
Whoever wins will also clinch a playoff and hold the top spot in a potential tie-breaker situation.
The Riggers are looking for their fourth straight win, most recently beating the Saskatchewan Rush 14-6 and 11-6 on back-to-back weekends.
For San Diego, they had a double header last weekend defeating Panther City 17-9 before falling to Buffalo 7-6 in overtime the next night.
Worth noting that Riggers forward Dan Taylor needs two points to hit 200 in his NLL career.
San Diego defeated Calgary 17-14 in their first meeting before the Roughnecks returned the favour with a 14-10 victory a couple of weeks later. Tyler Pace has 15 points in the two games against San Diego this season.
