CHICAGO - The Spokane Shock have yet to let go of the No. 1 ranking so far this regular season, again earning the top spot in the Week 8 Coaches Poll, the arenafootball2 (af2) league office announced today. Spokane collected 382 of the 384 points possible and 22-of-25 first place votes in securing the top spot for the ninth consecutive week. Spokane (6-0), the only remaining undefeated team in the league, was tested on Saturday by division rival Boise but prevailed by two points, 64-62.

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers (6-1, 335 points, 2 first place votes) maintained their spot at No. 2 after roughing up Mahoning Valley, 73-37. Tulsa moved into a tie with the Pioneers at No. 2 after the team's 75-56 Week 7 win against rival Oklahoma City. The Talons (6-1, 335 points, 1 first place vote) have won five straight games. The Tennessee Valley Vipers (5-2, 282 points) managed to jump one spot in the poll to No. 4 after their 44-36 road win at Corpus Christi. A new entry in the Top-5 this week is Rio Grande Valley. The Dorados (5-1, 264 points) made the largest leap in the polls this week, moving up five positions from No. 10 to No. 5 after a convincing 66-25 home win against Amarillo.
