SPOKANE -- The game-winning Hail Mary that lifted the Spokane Shock to victory on Saturday is the Arena Football League Highlight of the Week.

With 2.9 seconds left on the clock, Kyle Rowley fired a 34-yard rocket to the back of the end zone that was reeled in by wide receiver Randy Hymes. The touchdown with no time left on the clock lifted the Shock to a 63-61 win. The victory also pushed Spokane into the postseason.

Not only is the play the league's Highlight of the Week, but it was also featured on SportsCenter's Top Plays for the weekend.

Spokane wraps up the regular season on Friday on the road against Jacksonville. They then play Arizona in the first round of the playoffs next Friday, July 29th.
