Shock take Command

I've been busy with graduation parties and relatives in town, but I knew when I woke up this morning I'd forgotten something. I hadn't posted Jessica Brown's game story from the Shock's easy win over Kansas City on Saturday night. So here's Jessica's report and S-R photos.

Just another strange AFL day

Friday was another bizarre day in the Arena Football League with labor unrest resurfacing but much like the first flare-up in March, it impacted just one game. (And 'impact' might be too strong of a word to describe what the latest work stoppage accomplished.)

Here's the recap. Cleveland players chose to strike and forfeited their game to Pittsburgh, which was ready to play. It was the Power that was caught up in the March strike, with the team owner firing his players during the pre-game meal. A few hours later, Orlando defeated a mix of Power players who decided to play and some replacement players.

Cleveland apparently was the lone team to strike. Recaps of the other two games didn't even mention a work stoppage.

So, here's my game preview and more on the labor unrest here, here and here.

Spokane rolls past Kansas City

Back with my game story from Spokane's 61-34 win over Kansas City on Friday. The Shock (1-3) have a bye week before visiting Utah on April 15th.

Shock crush Command for first win

Short recap below. Complete game story in about 75 minutes.

Shock-Command ready for kickoff

Spokane and Kansas City are about 20 minutes from kickoff at the Arena. Just a reminder: In-game updates at

I'll post a short game story here just after the final horn. I'll also post a final game story at about 12:15.

Shock trying to reduce mistakes

Spokane (0-3) tries to get back in the winner's circle when winless Kansas City (0-2) visits the Arena on Friday. My game preview here. (Correction: Shock P.R.'s Kevin Maloney points out that Spokane does have an interception, by Terrance Taylor last week before he was injured. I had used the AFL's official stat pack, which listed Spokane with zero interceptions.)
