San Jose faces Dallas for first time in franchise history

July 14, 2021

The San Jose Spiders will take on the Dallas Roughnecks for the first time in franchise history this Saturday, July 17 at 6:30pm. The game will be played at Oakland Tech High School.

The Spiders are back in action this weekend after back-to-back bye weeks. Their last game came against the Austin Sol on June 26; the Spiders came out on top 28-23 with their highest single-game point total of the season. This week they’ll face an underperforming Roughnecks team many thought to be the division favorites coming into the season; Dallas has made it to Championship Weekend each of their first four seasons in the league. 

The Spiders currently sit at 2-2 in fourth place in the West Division, while the Roughnecks are in third. Depending on how Austin and Dallas fare in their west coast road trips this weekend, a win over Dallas could vault the Spiders into second place in the division, positioning the team for their first playoff berth since 2017. Saturday’s game marks the fourth of a five-game home stand; the Spiders have gone 2-1 in their previous three home games.

Tickets for this game are available at the official team store.
