IFL: Shock falls in long-awaited return to league

| May 16, 2021 1:00 AM

SPOKANE — The Spokane Shock, playing its first game in the Indoor Football League since 2017, fell short to the expansion Frisco Fighters 36-33 with no fans in attendance at the Spokane Arena on Saturday night.

In a back-and-forth game, the Fighters scored in the waning seconds to take the lead for good. Frisco’s Joel Dullary had his second interception of the night to seal the victory.

Spokane ceased operations in 2017, but was slated to return in 2020 before the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of the season.

Demarcus Felton had three rushing touchdowns for Frisco, and quarterback Jonathan Bane found Mark Munson for the other two touchdowns of the night.

Further information was not available.

Spokane travels to Massachusetts next Saturday at 5 p.m.
