Sunday at 10 p.m., Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena, Spokane, Wash.

Last game: The Soul (1-0) got conformation that receiver Ryan McDaniel is fully recovered from his torn Achilles tendon injury last week as McDaniel helped the Soul to a 70-63 victory when he hauled in quarterback Dan Raudabaugh's pass in the final seconds of regulation to lead the Soul past Orlando.

Outlook: This is the first meeting between the Soul and the Shock (0-1) since the 2012 season. The Shock, playing at home, won the game, 65-47. . . . The Soul's offense, with its new weapons, performed just as the front office envisioned, with Raudabaugh finding his receivers all day against the Predators. . . . Raudabaugh completed 30 of 48 passes for 422 yards, eight touchdowns and no interceptions. . . . Shock defensive end James Ruffin, last season's defensive lineman of the year and a first-team all-Arena selection will challenge the Soul's offensive line. Last season, he led the league and set a franchise record with 14 sacks. He also recorded 38.5 total tackles and one interception.
