The Roughnecks have rattled off two-straight wins to get back to .500 after defeating Vancouver 14-7 on Saturday night.
The Riggers now head to Colorado to take on the Mammoth, who have struggled out of the gate. There were some big milestones and goals put up on Saturday night, including Zach Currier getting to 1,000 career loose balls, and Christian Del Bianco hitting 5,000 minutes played.
Let’s take a look at the numbers.
Tanner Cook got career goal No. 50 on Saturday in Vancouver. He scored five in the Riggers win.
Riggers captain Jesse King is averaging 7.25 points per game so far this season. That is the highest points per game in the league.
The Riggers gave up just seven goals against on Saturday which is a season low. It’s the first time this year the ‘Necks have given up less than 10 goals, a feat they accomplished 10 times last season.
Haiden Dickson needs two goals on Saturday to hit 50 in his career. Dickson leads the Roughnecks in goals through four games with 10.
