Three in a row isn’t what the Shock wants


For the first time in the franchise’s history, the Shock will be trying to avoid a three-game losing streak tonight (5; KHQ-6; 105.7-FM).

Jessica Brown covered the buildup to tonight’s contest with this preview. In there coach Adam Shackleford pointed out the Shock missed, by his count, 32 tackles last week.

Now 32 is a great number when on the back of Jim Brown or O.J., but as a number of missed tackles, it’s not good.

That’s something we will be focusing on that tonight, and we’ll let you know how Spokane is doing in that department against Lubbock.

The Renegades are 0-2 in their expansion year, having lost at Amarillo (scoring just 26 points) and at home vs. Arkansas. They are the only winless team in the Northern Conference’s Central Division.

We’ll be back later. The lights are about to go out.
