SPOKANE, Wash. – Former Spokane quarterback Erik Meyer and the San Jose SaberCats proved to be too tough of a test for the Shock in a 62-27 win at the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena on Friday Night.

The SaberCats (13-1, 5-0 Pacific) jumped out to a 14-0 lead thanks to two Meyer to Reggie Gray touchdown connections.

Starting QB Carson Coffman finally put the Shock (4-9, 1-4) on the board early in the second quarter with a 9-yard TD pass to Nick Truesdell, who had a nice one-handed snag for the score. Spokane got into San Jose on its first two drives but failed to score.

After another Meyer touchdown pass for the SaberCats, the Shock cut the lead to one score again with a 44-yard TD pass from Coffman to Braylon Bell.

San Jose looked primed to score again, but Micah King forced Darius Reynolds to cough up the rock and Spokane defensive back Mike McMillan picked it up and took 30 yards for a touchdown to tie things up at 20-20.

The Shock looked to capitalize on their run with an onside kick attempt, but it failed and the SaberCats turned the tide with a 4-yard TD pass from Meyer to Ben Nelson.

Spokane was able to prevent San Jose from scoring right before the end of the half to go into the locker rooms trailing 27-20.

Meyer and the SaberCats got the ball first in the second half, scored and never looked back.

San Jose went on to score 35 unanswered points over the third and fourth quarters to put away the game.

The Shock put a final TD on the board on an Arvell Nelson to Truesdell 10-yard pass to give the game its final score.
