Penalties? Big deal

The penalties start to even out, with the Shock hit with another holding, this time on the offensive end. That’s followed by an illegal procedure, but an extra 15 yards in arena ball is nothing – at least it is this night. A third-down pass to Vijil brings a first down at the 11.

The Shock get in, despite Rowley missing an open Savage in the end zone on third down. He just goes to Frederick on fourth down, isolated against Byron Hughey on the left side.

The drive took only about 4 minutes off the clock but about 15 minutes off our lives, as the Shock used time out after time out. Now, at least, they are out.

One interesting note from the first quarter stats: The Shock led despite Rowley completing just 2 of 6 passes.
