Shock Hang On, Win Thriller Over Rush
Jeffrey Giuliani, ArenaFan.com

Thursday evening’s playoff game between the Spokane Shock and Chicago Rush was a tale of two different halves. The first half was a gritty half, with defenses stepping up and quarterbacks getting thrown around like ragdolls. On the flip side, the second half was an offensive shootout, where scoring was effortless and the scoreboard was lighting up like a pinball machine. In the end, it was the Shock who triumphed over the gutsy Rush by a score of 69-47, not at all indicative of how close the game really was.

After a whirlwind final weekend of the AFL season, the playoff matchups have been set. The Spokane Shock, who were still gunning for the #1 seed, settled for the #3 seed and a home playoff game against the Chicago Rush. Their only matchup of 2013 was in late March, during Week 2. Spokane went into Chicago on Easter Sunday and dominated the Rush 76-61.

Rush Look to Overcome Next Obstacle
Jeff Sims, ArenaFan.com

All season long, the Chicago Rush have had to deal with obstacles that have gotten in their way. From not knowing if there would even be a team on the field this season due to ownership issues, to not playing any additional home games due to what the league calls “arena issues” (ownership failing to secure and pay the Allstate Arena for home games), to being limited to roster transactions after being taken over by the league during the season, the Rush at this point should feel as if they have been through everything.
