Building the lead

For most of the game, it’s almost as if the Shock have one receiver – Frederick. Then Beard lets you know that’s not the case, making a seemingly impossible one-handed catch to give Spokane a first down deep in Twister territory.

The Shock cash in on a 6-yard run by Vijil, behind the big body of Ta’amu. With a little less than 20 minutes left in the game, and with a trip to the Arena Bowl on the line, the Shock lead by 11.

If the defense makes another stop, you may be able to make your reservations for that long-anticipated trip to Puerto Rico.
