THE SPOKANE SHOCK WENT THROUGH THE WORST SIX GAME
SPAN IN CLUB HISTORY THIS YEAR WHILE ERIK MEYER WAS
OUT WITH AN INJURY..... BUT NOW THEY'VE WON THREE
IN A ROW - INCLUDING BEATING THE 2 TIME DEFENDING
CHAMPION ARIZONA RATTLERS SATURDAY... DALLAS HAMMER
HAS MORE ON THE STATE OF THE SHOCK.
DALLAS HAMMER: "AFTER BEING DOWN BY THREE SCORES EARLY,
THE SPOKANE SHOCK RALLIED TO BEAT THE ARIZONA RATTLERS,
AND TEAM CONFIDENCE IS AT A SEASON HIGH."
TERRANCE SANDERS: "Just to know that we can beat these
guys you know, they had our number for about five
or six games there, about two years, we hadn't beat
these guys, since 2012 so to get that win right there
that's monumental knowing that we could possibly go
back down there and face those guys again."
JAMES RUFFIN: "We've beat them in the past here, we
just want to remember this when we go on the road
to Arizona in the second round of the playoffs so
we just want to build off of this and keep the momentum
HAMMER: "UNBELIEVABLE THAT THE SHOCK ARE NOW DREAMING
OF A SECOND ROUND MATCHUP IN THE PLAYOFFS, WHEN JUST
A MONTH AGO THEY HAD A LOSING RECORD."
SANDERS: "It's just huge man, knowing where we came
from, we were in the depths of hell, you know for
about five weeks there we were in the depths of hell,
and nobody knew how we were getting out, but hey,
we all stayed and we all fought."
MIKE WASHINGTON: "A couple weeks ago we was down in
the slum we, I think we went one and five when Meyer
was down so uh, he's back, we got players back, we
rolling, we clicking, and we're trying to get this
momentum going into next week and the week after and
keep it continuing in the playoffs man, all this is
about us getting better."
HAMMER: "NOW RIDING A THREE GAME WINNING STREAK, EVERYTHING
IS STARTING TO CLICK AND THE SHOCK ARE GETTING BETTER
EVERY SINGLE GAME."
ANDY OLSON: "We're peaking at the right time, you
know we played a very average football game in that
first half, probably below average, and we came back
and we beat a fourteen and one football team. So I
just, I'm just glad to see the heart, the urgency
that everyone showed in that second half, and ultimately
I feel that we are starting to peak at the right time,
we've got a lot of work to do, we can be much better
than we are. But I feel like we are getting healthy
at the right time and we are peaking at the right
HAMMER: "WITH ONLY ONE WIN IN ARIZONA IN ALL OF TEAM
HISTORY, THE SHOCK WILL NEED TO BE AT THEIR ABSOLUTE
BEST FOR A POTENTIAL PLAYOFF REMATCH. IN SPOKANE,
DALLAS HAMMER, 700 ESPN."
THE SHOCK HAVE A LONG WORK WEEK AS THEY DON'T PLAY
