Hamilton, ON – The Toronto Rock (6-4) take on the New York Riptide (2-7) tonight at FirstOntario Centre. The Riptide upset the Rock last weekend on Long Island, so the Rock will be looking for revenge. The home side will finally have a true home floor advantage, playing in front of the Rock City faithful for the first time in 2022.
