The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers improved to 2-0 with a convincing 70-28 home win against Albany Friday night in front of 5,067 fans at Wachovia Arena.

The Firebirds drew first blood using 1:54 as Albany QB Adam Bednarik completed a 41-yard touchdown pass to Mike Wall. But after unsuccessful series by both teams the Pioneers got onto the scoreboard when QB Ryan Vena completed his 400th career touchdown pass to JJ Outlaw with 5:37 left in the first quarter. The Firebird offense answered by driving down to the 1-yard line and letting Bednarik take it in for their second score of the night. Vena only needed :05 to connect with WR Rich Musinski for a 28-yard pass with :26 left on the clock to tie the score at 14-14.

The seesaw battle continued into the 2nd quarter with a 22-yard pass by the Firebirds and the Pioneers answers back with Vena capping off a 4 play 40-yard drive with a 2-yard scamper into the end zone. Bednarik came back with a score of his own to put the Birds in the lead and make the score 28-21 with 5:13 left in the half. Vena completed an 8-yard pass to Irving Campbell breaking his second record of the night. The completion put Vena over the 20,000-yard mark for his career. J.J. Outlaw kept the show rolling as he reached the end zone for the second time of the night catching a 13-yard Vena pass with 1:06 on the clock.

The Pioneers defense took the field looking to keep the momentum and that they did. LB Larry Kendrick intercepted Bednarik

For the fourth consecutive season, the Spokane Shock came away with a 59-42 victory on opening night in front of a sold-out crowd, their 20th straight regular season sell-out. The Shock (1-0) overcame a game Stockton squad that saw its record slip to 1-1 in defeat.

In a see-saw first half battle, the Lightning drew first blood on a 28-yard pass from QB Andy Collins to WR Troy McBroom, his longest of the night. Collins added four more touchdown passes and ended the night with 311 total passing yards.

Although Collins did not make many mistakes tonight, he did make a crucial mistake at the end of the first half that proved to be a
