SPOKANE, Wash. – The Spokane Shock erupted in the second half, turning a 29-16 lead at half into a 57-26 final score over the Milwaukee Mustangs with excellent performances by Bran Thompkins, Adron Tennell, and Kyle Rowley.

Rowley drove the offense down the field for a score on the first drive of the game, hitting receiver Tennell on a 16-yard touchdown pass to put the Shock up 7-0.

The Mustangs tied the game up with a rushing touchdown by Quarterback Geno Guidugli.

In the second quarter Spokane's Terance Moore intercepted a Guidugli pass and ran it back for the score. Milwaukee blocked the extra point and returned it for two points. The Shock kept their defensive momentum going on the next drive when Jeremy Geathers sacked Guidugli in the endzone for a safety.

The Spokane offense then drove down the field once again and scored on a Thompkins rushing touchdown giving the team a 22-9 lead.

After allowing a 26-yard touchdown catch by Jared Jenkins, the Shock responded with an eight yard score by Tennell, making the score 29-16 at half.

Milwaukee opened the second half with a field goal, which Spokane followed up with three straight touchdowns by Thompkins and a fourth by Tennell, giving the Shock a 57-19 lead. The Mustangs finally answered late in the fourth quarter with a five-yard rushing touchdown by Justin Lawrence.

Rowley was very efficient on the evening completing 20 of 26 passes for 214 yards, five touchdowns and 1 interception.

Thompkins produced four touchdowns for Spokane: two one-yard rushes, a 25-yard pass, and a 7-yard pass. He finished the game with seven receptions for 89 yards.

Tennell had nine grabs for 94 yards and three scores.

The Shock will head east to face the Jacksonville Sharks in their next game on April 28th.
