SETTIN’ IT UP:

The Roughnecks are in the playoffs, but there is still more work to do.

Calgary (9-7) takes on Rochester (3-13) on Friday night. (5 p.m., TSN.ca /ESPN+)

The Riggers head into their matchup on a five-game winning streak after beating Vancouver last weekend 15-13.

The win clinched a playoff spot after they also won the Alterna Cup as Canada’s top team due to a Halifax loss earlier in the day.

There is still a chance the Roughnecks could finish in the top spot in the West, they need to win both of their final games (Next week being against Colorado) and San Diego will have to lose one of their final two. 

It’s been a tough season for Rochester. They enter Friday’s contest in last in the league at 3-13.
