Storm Send Off Arena With One Last Title

June 29, 2014, 10:45 PM by Cat Clark

Storm Send Off Arena With One Last Title
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

They did it. Last night the Storm captured their eighth indoor football title in ten years. It was an emotional night as veterans such as Chris Dixon, James Terry, Cory Johnsen, and many more said hello to another ring and goodbye to the Sioux Falls Arena.

"One, two, three, champs!" the Storm exclaimed.

For the fourth straight year the Storm hoisted the United Bowl trophy after their 63-46 win over Nebraska. It's the second four-peat in franchise history leaving only one word to describe them.

"Dynasty, it's surreal right now and it hasn't really hit me yet. Not a lot of people get the opportunity to do this, one, after one, after one, after one, and it's amazing!" Storm Center Charlie Sanders said.

The Danger scored first, quieting the sold out Storm Shelter, but then Chris Dixon went to work. He totaled eight touchdowns, five of them to his co-M.V.P. wide-out James Terry, who tallied six scores.

"We were really good offensively. Chris had that look in his eyes and you knew he was going to take this game over. Our offensive line played really well too," Storm Head Coach Kurtiss Riggs said.

"We play for titles. When you win a title it feels good every time. For us to get this far and not come up short is a beautiful thing. We played so well for four quarters and we knew if we played well we could beat anybody. That is what we did tonight," Storm QB Chris Dixon said.

Emotions were high not only for it being the United Bowl, but also the final game in the Arena where the Storm had won 42 straight games. Each championship in this dynasty has its own memories; however this one may have a few more.

"I'm going to remember watching the confetti come down, knowing that we just won IFL championship for the fourth straight time," Dixon said.

"It's almost surreal that we are done in here, but we are excited about moving into the new place, and hopefully we can start a new streak," Riggs said.
The Storm will look to continue and begin all of their streaks when they move into to their new home at the Denny Sanford Premier Center to kick off their 2015 season, as they look to once again defend their title.
