Spokane wins seventh in a row

Spokane had travel issues Friday and eventually had to bus from Minneapolis to Milwaukee, arriving at 4 a.m. Saturday. It didn't seem to bother the top-ranked Shock on the field as they toppled Milwaukee 62-48 Saturday night to improve to 9-2. 

The Shock's seventh straight victory sets up a big showdown with No. 2 Arizona, which knocked off Jacksonville 66-50 on the road Saturday night. Arizona (8-3) has won six straight after a 63-56 loss to Spokane in Phoenix.

UPDATE: Not sure what the circumstances were, but this game story indicates Arizona QB Nick Davila was kicked out of Saturday's game in the third. Also, John Booker, a former Shock lineman, is playing fullback now for the Rattlers. Looks like Davila threw a punch after scoring a rushing touchdown.
