The Rochester Lancers are fighting for a playoff spot and this weekend they travel to play the Missouri Comets this evening and the Wichita Wings tomorrow night.
Missouri will be looking to avenge last Sunday's loss to the Lancers where MISL leading scorer Doug Miller put up 11 points. That performance landed Miller on the MISL team of the week.
