Shock remain No. 2; Sharks No. 1

The Spokane Shock didn’t play last week, but they were poised to climb into the No. 1 spot in the AFL coaches poll when top-ranked Milwaukee lost to Arizona.

It didn’t happen. Spokane remained No. 2 in the Week 10 rankings while Jacksonville, which lost the Shock two weeks ago, vaulted from No. 3 to No. 1. Milwaukee dropped to No. 3 and Spokane West Division rival Arizona moved up two spots to fourth.
