SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Shock hit the road for the second week in a row this weekend, this time for a matchup with neighboring Tri-Cities.

The trip to Kennewick is a mere two hours away.  The undefeated Shock will face the Fever, their division rivals, for the second time this year.  Spokane won the first game 62-32.

The 1-7 Fever are coming off a bye week.  Despite their losing record, Shock players and coaches respect the team from Tri-Cities.

"Just because they're 1-7, that doesn't mean anything," said Shock lineman John Booker.  "They beat somebody and they could beat us too.  If it was impossible for them to beat us, we wouldn't play the game."

Saturday's game at the Toyota Center in Kennewick gets started at 7:05 p.m.

The Shock have won the last 5 meetings against the Fever.  If the Fever win, it would give Tri-Cities a 2-5 series record against Spokane, give the Shock their first loss in 2009 and put Tri-Cities at .500 since Pat O'Hara became head coach.
