Looking for three.

The Roughnecks host the Philadelphia Wings Saturday at 7 p.m. for the Saturday Night Party presented by United Way TICKETS.

Last Sunday the Riggers (4-5) dominated the Halifax Thunderbirds 17-11 at the Rough House. The ‘Necks have now won two in a row and are looking to get back to .500 on the season. Jesse King led the way with nine points (3g, 6a) in the victory.

The Wings enter the battle following a 10-8 win over Las Vegas last weekend. They sit 3-5 on the season.

This is the first of a home-and-home series between the Roughnecks and Wings. The Riggers will head to Philly for part two next Saturday. The Last time Philadelphia was in Calgary was Dec. 28, 2019, a game which the Wings won 8-7.

Worth noting, Haiden Dickson needs one point to get to 100 in his career.
