Half: Shock 49, Blaze 35

Spokane leads Utah 49-35 at half of the Joe Albi Summer Classic. Conditions are nearly perfect with temperatures in the 70s and a light breeze. An official crowd count hasn't been announced, but it's a sizable crowd and apparently folks were still buying tickets late in the second quarter.

Erik Meyer has tossed five touchdown passes, the last covering 11 yards to Emery Sammons with two seconds in the second quarter to expand Spokane's lead to two touchdowns. Meyer also has a rushing TD.

Utah's Todd Hammel, signed earlier this week, was impressive, completing 14 of 16 with four TDs. The game's lone turnover came when defensive back Alex Teems stripped the football from Blaze receiver Aaron Lesue early in the second quarter.
