The Shock play the last minute with a quick front, but it doesn’t stop the Twisters from moving to the Shock 3. They have more trouble with the crowd, as a false start moves them back to the 8.
Which just gives Williams more room to work in the end zone – and allows him to get behind Trufant for another score.
Arkansas, which converted the extra point, left 38 seconds on the clock, however. Most nights this year, that’s been enough for Spokane.
The key for the Shock is the ability to get Frederick isolated away from traffic and for Rowley to have enough time to find him. At first, the guys up front do their job (when they don’t get caught holding) and Frederick finds the open holes. But penalties are killing the Shock’s drive. It finally ends with a sack. The Shock lead 27-23 at the half.
