Saturday's big win over San Jose got us thinking here at SWX: what are the top five most exciting games in team history?

After a little reflection and couple of phone calls to team executives, we came up with this list.

Do you agree?

5. Shock 66, Bakersfield 63  It was the Shock's first season in Spokane. Charles Frederick scored a touchdown in the closing seconds of the game to beat Bakersfield and send the Shock into the playoffs.

4. Spokane 55, Wilkes-Barre Scranton 52  Markee White's one-handed touchdown catch with :24 left in the game gave the Shock a 55-52 win. It also foretold the 2009 af2 title game, which Spokane also won.

3. Spokane 66, Central Valley 63 It was May 26, 2007 when Spokane stunned Central Valley. With Andrico Hines out with an injury, Justin Rummel came into the game and fired a winning touchdown strike to Kelvin Dickens.

2. Tennessee Valley 56, Spokane 55  Tennessee Valley capped off an overtime thriller by going for the two point conversion. They converted, stunning the Shock on their home turf.

1. Spokane 63, San Jose 61  Kyle Rowley came in as a backup to an injured Erik Meyer, throwing a desperation Hail Mary with no time on the clock to Randy Hymes, who was making his debut with the team. The catch – and the win – gave the Spokane a spot in the 2011 playoffs, keeping their back-to-back Arena Bowl hopes alive.
