Shock move into first spot in AF2

CHICAGO - Spokane stayed perfect in 2008 at 9-0 after holding off Stockton this past Saturday at Spokane Arena, 52-42. The Shock are the only remaining unbeaten team in the af2.

The defending ArenaCup Champion Tulsa Talons, who owned the pole position for the past 10 weeks, dropped into a tie at No. 2 after losing their first game of the season last Saturday at Bossier-Shreveport, 52-45. The loss also snapped the Talons' 16-game win streak, which included eight in a row from last season. Tulsa's run of 16 straight wins ranks as the third longest in league history.

The Talons (8-1, 389 points, 1 first place vote) host No. 5 Lubbock this Saturday at the Tulsa Convention Center. The Florida Firecats (8-1, 389 points) improved two places from No. 4 to No. 2 (tie with Tulsa) on the strength of the squad's 41-15 home win against new in-state and South Division rival Daytona Beach. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (7-2, 369 points, 1 first place vote) dropped one spot to No. 4 after the Pioneers' 70-63 road loss at East Division foe Manchester. The Renegades (7-2, 331 points) round out the Top-5 this week after earning a 48-20 home win against Rio Grande Valley.
