NLL: Roughnecks win critical game against Halifax

February 23, 2024

What a difference two weeks can make. When the Calgary Roughnecks stepped off the turf on February 3rd, they’d just dropped both games of a double header and plummeted to 15th in the standings – last place. You did not want to look at the power rankings if you were a Roughnecks fan. Following those two losses, it seemed like Josh Sanderson saw something the rest of us didn’t when…


NLL: Pivotal weekend ends in disappointment for Roughnecks

February 7, 2024

It was a pivotal weekend for the Calgary Roughnecks as they faced the ever-daunting back-to-back games on their home turf of Westjet Field. Win both and you’re a top eight team.

January 18, 2024

Saturday night was country night in Vancouver and there wasn’t a more willing dance partner than the visitors from Cowtown. The Calgary Roughnecks took the lead early as the Warriors seemingly tripped over their own two left feet.

NLL: Roughnecks get first win of season in front of home crowd

January 4, 2024

For the first two games of the season, the Calgary Roughnecks agonizingly teased fans with the potential of how good they could be. In a Rochester, a scintillating offensive put up 10 first half goals before stalling in the second half and allowing the Knighthawks to squeak out a win. A four-goal effort by Tyler Pace in San Diego was wasted when the team went cold in the fourth and…
