In a game that went back and forth early, the Sioux Falls Storm used discipline and execution to outpace the Nebraska Danger Saturday, 55-36.
The lone bright spot in the loss was Danger quarterback Tommy Armstrong, Jr. who again had a great performance, running for four touchdowns and throwing for another - accounting for all of the team's TD's in the game.
In fact, the Danger looked to be quite competitive early in the game thanks to Armstrong's legs. After a turnover deep in Sioux Falls territory, the Danger capitalized with a 1-yard TD run from Armstrong to take a 13-7 lead over the Storm, but even on the touchdown, a Danger weakness was exposed.
For the second-straight game, kicker Jarod Haynes struggled to find a rhythm. He missed the PAT after the go-ahead touchdown from Armstrong, and he ended up making just one of his three PAT attempts and going 1-4 on field goal attempts, including having one attempt blocked and returned for a TD to end the first half.
Sioux Falls was paced by quarterback Lorenzo Brown, Jr. who combined for five touchdowns in the win, running for three and throwing for two. He ended up with 170 yards through the air, but only eight on the ground encompassing his three TD's.
The Nebraska Danger now enter the bye week at 1-2 in need of a significant turnaround before squaring off with defending IFL champion Iowa. The Barnstormers just crushed the Green Bay Blizzard 41-3 over the weekend. Kickoff for that game will be 7 p.m. inside the Heartland Events Center on Saturday, March 23.
