Shock run away with it

Spokane’s afl2 team caps 1-loss season with win in championship game

They’re ArenaCup champions again.

The Spokane Shock faced the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers in Las Vegas for the afl2’s championship game. By late in the third quarter, it was looking to be a blow out. By the fourth quarter, it was.

The Shock kept scoring and scoring and scoring, finishing off the Pioneers 74-27. An interception of a Ryan Vena pass by Sergio Gilliam for a touchdown sealed it with 48 seconds left on the clock.

The Shock won the ArenaCup in 2006, their first year in the league. Last year, they played the championship game at Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena and lost to the Tennessee Valley Vipers in overtime.
