Pasco grad Vijil scores 3 times in Spokane’s af2 title win

LAS VEGAS — The Spokane Shock rode a huge second half to a 74-27 victory Saturday night in front of an announced crowd of 5,846 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, giving the Shock its second ArenaCup title in four years and easing some of the pain of last year’s loss in the championship game.

The 47-point margin was easily the largest in ArenaCup history.

Spokane’s 23-point win in 2006 is the second largest in history.

Pasco High graduate Raul Vijil finished with three touchdown catches for Spokane.
