Good morning Shock fans. An interesting game last night as Stockton looked pretty good building a 21-7 lead early in the second quarter only to get swamped when Spokane's offense and defense hit their stride. The final: 62-21.

Here's John Blanchette's look at the game and a game story in the Stockton Record filed by the S-R's Greg Lee.

Here's a game story from Boise, where the Burn hammered ex-Shock head coach Chris Siegfried's Arkansas Twisters 77-36 behind a strong performance by backup QB Mark Thorson. However, it was a favorable bounce off the goal posts (much like Sergio Gilliam's recovery Saturday night) and a turnover-forcing defense (think Shock most of the season) that ignited Boise's rout.

The Burn already sound fired up about their fourth date with Spokane this season, this one will come in the National Conference semifinals Saturday night at the Arena. The Burn are 0-3 against Spokane this year and 0-8 all-time.

You can find recaps on all the first-round playoff games at the af2 Web site. There will be a new champion after Tennessee Valley, which upset Spokane in last year's ArenaCup, fell to Green Bay.
