Force get one more chance at Roughriders

The Fargo Force take on the Cedar Rapids Roughriders in the final tilt between the two teams tomorrow.  Cedar Rapids has won every meeting so far (3/3).  The Force still have a shot at first place in the USHL's West Division and will look to make a run going into the playoffs.  Cedar Rapids is led by Zach Lehrke and Jeff Costello on offense and Bryce Aneloski on defense.

The Force have played some crazy games with Cedar Rapids in their three meetings to date and have given up way too many goals to beat them (18 goals against in three games).  Ryan Massa seems to be back at his best with a couple of very solid games against Green Bay and a nice performance in Tri-City.  Fargo will need to do a better job limiting their opponents' shots to beat the Riders on Wednesday, Chicago on Friday and Green Bay again on Saturday.  Massa has seen 193 shots in his last five games and more than 40 shots in two of his last three games.

Over the weekend, Fargo got another 50-point player as Chase Grant added an assist to bring his totals to 50.  Matt Leitner, Corey Leivermann, Nate Condon and Chase Grant all have 50+ points for the Force.  In 2008-09 the Force only had two 50+ point scorers in Andy Taranto and Matt Leitner.
