Roughnecks know first hand it's necessary to get hot at the right time

The Calgary Roughnecks are not hitting the panick button.

Having lost three of their last four games and sitting .500 through 10 games, the team has experience first hand all that’s needed is to get hot at the right time.

So it’s better to learn from the mistakes now than the beginning of May when playoffs roll around. 

“Historically with this team, there are not a lot of situations in the past where this team is .500 or sub .500,” said Roughnecks transition star Geoff Snider, who will return to the lineup after missing last week’s game against the Edmonton Rush.  

“It’s great to be battling some adversity early and growing as a team moving forward. I’d rather be doing this now than in May.

“We are following the plan and growing as a group. That’s what we are going to continue to do. Every year is a new period to grow, and we are growing towards a championship.” 

The next challenge coming down the pipe is the Minnesota Swarm with a game on Friday night down at the Scotiabank Saddledome starting at 7 p.m.

It’ll be the first trip to Calgary for the Swarm this year, although the two teams played a few weeks back in the bee hive at St. Paul, Minnesota.

Three shorthanded goals from Curtis Dickson in under 10 minutes, an NLL record, helped the Roughnecks secure a 17-16 victory over their West Division counterpart.

Minnesota (3-6) is in their own mini-slump, having dropped the last two games to the Rush and Washington Stealth, and are situated in fourth place in the tight West Division. 

One major difference for the Swarm since the last game against the Roughnecks is the absence of captain Andrew Suitor. A gritty, hard-working transition star will miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL a few weeks ago. 

“Everybody knows they’re a pretty good transition team,” said Calgary assistant coach Bob McMahon. “We’re just going to have to control the tempo of the game a little bit and sort of control the runs.”

That’ll force the Roughnecks to monitor one component on the offensive side, McMahon said. 

“We have to possess the ball,” McMahon said. “We have to be cognizant of the shot clock. We have to take intelligent shots and just not give them an opportunity to grab loose balls and run. They’re such an athletic and young, good team. They are going to get their chances. We just have to minimize them.”

Game time is 7 p.m with tickets still available.
