Rock Have Another Chance To Clinch A Playoff Spot Tonight
Albany, NY – The Toronto Rock (10-4) will face the Albany FireWolves (2-10) on Saturday night at MVP Arena in Albany, NY for the second of two meetings this season. The Rock beat the FireWolves just two weeks ago in Hamilton at FirstOntario Centre by a score of 12-6.
The Rock were in a position last weekend to clinch a playoff spot with a win over Halifax but came up just short in a 14-12 loss to the Thunderbirds. Tonight, in Albany, the Rock are in the exact same position; win and you’re in.
