Ground broken at Arena for memorial to fallen heroes

Several hundred people gathered Friday morning – the anniversary of 9/11 – to break ground on a new memorial honoring post-9/11 service members who died in the line of duty. The memorial at the southeast plaza of Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena will join other veteran monuments previously erected there.

Memorial pavers can now be purchased to remember fallen military personnel from the Inland Northwest. The pavers will go into the walkways around a new memorial sculpture to honor post-Sept. 11 military personnel who have died.

Spokane Shock: Indoor Football League at a glance

The Spokane Shock announced a switch to the Indoor Football League on Tuesday, ending a six-year run in the Arena Football League. Here’s a quick look at the current members – and how the Shock compare – in Spokane’s new indoor football league:

It’s official: Adam Shackleford will coach IFL Shock

Adam Shackleford called it a working vacation. Turns out his phone couldn’t keep up as Shackleford, back in the saddle as Spokane’s head coach, began putting pieces in place as the 10-year-old organization drops from the Arena Football League to the Indoor Football League.

Shock lead early before season ends with thud

PHOENIX – Spokane finally fixed its habit of slow starts but the rest of the game proved to be problematic. The visiting Shock jumped in front by two touchdowns, but second-seeded Arizona stormed back and rolled to a 72-41 National Conference playoff victory Saturday at Talking Stick Resort Arena.

Shock notes: Revamped running game powers consecutive victories

It’s usually about the aerial attack and the glamour position of quarterback in arena football. The running game receives about as much attention as the third-string left guard in the outdoor game. Doesn’t mean it’s not important, as the Spokane Shock demonstrated the last two weeks.

Shock show their finishing touch in win over Portland

Spokane has been in numerous nailbiters this season and most haven’t ended in the Shock’s favor. But the last two have, including a 42-40 victory over the Portland Thunder in front of 8,357 Saturday.

Shock notes: Win over Rattlers has team feeling upbeat

Wins do wonders for a football team’s morale. Big wins mean even more. Spokane had an extra bounce in its step at Wednesday’s practice after knocking off Arizona last week. The Shock are just 5-10, but they have a good shot at the third seed – particularly if they defeat visiting Portland on Saturday – in the National Conference, which would likely mean a first-round playoff matchup against the Rattlers in Phoenix.

Shock find old form in upsetting Arizona Rattlers

Playing against the quarterback that led them to the Arena Cup in 2009 during their af2 days, the Spokane Shock somehow found their old form Friday night and beat the AFL West Division champion Arizona Rattlers 52-46 before 7,938 at the Arena. Down 20-7 in the first half, the Shock (5-10) took only one play to cough the ball up and give the Arizona Rattlers another chance to extend their lead to three scores and add another dismal night to the Shock’s disappointing year.

Shock look to turn things around as Arizona comes to town

Spokane didn’t have much time to sulk after Sunday’s road loss to the L.A. Kiss, one of the worst teams in the Arena Football League. The Shock traveled back from southern California and squeezed in a few practices to prepare for tonight’s visit from three-time defending champion Arizona.
