A hit to end a quarter

The award for the best form tackle goes to Shock kicker Jon Koker.

OK, that’s an exaggeration, but Koker does make a tackle on the ensuing kickoff, and the form is good – especially for a kicker.

But it was nothing like a hit by Peaua, who nails lineman Vernon Robiskie on the third quarter’s final play. Church had been sacked, and Robiskie picked up the loose ball. But before he can move, Peaua hits him like a missile, knocking Robiskie’s helmet flying.

The hit ignites another crowd explosion.
