SPOKANE -- The Spokane Shock are at what head coach Rob Keefe calls "The Great Divide". At 0-3, he says the team can either fall apart or come together.
We'll see which direction they choose on Friday night at Veterans Memorial Arena. The Shock welcome the Kansas City Command to town. You can watch the game live on KSKN 22 at 8pm.
Just like Spokane, which is off to its worst start in franchise history, the Command are winless (0-2) this year. They've only lost by a combined ten points in those contests though (a 53-46 loss to Dallas and a 60-57 loss to San Jose). Kansas City also gets extra time to prepare for Spokane, because they had a bye last week.
The Shock, the defending ArenaBowl champions, are riding the first three-game losing streak in team history. The consecutive losses also means Spokane is already three games back in the division. Arizona, ranked No. 1 in this week's AFL poll, is in charge of the West Division at 3-0. That deficit leads Keefe to believe every game for the rest of the season is a "must win".
