Storm One Win Away

July 1, 2012, 10:39 PM by Jim Madalinsky

Storm One Win Away

At 16-0, one win is all that separates the Sioux Falls Storm from back to back IFL titles. It certainly wasn't an easy ride last night though, as the Storm got all the could handle from the Green Bay Blizzard.

After taking a 2 point lead into the locker room, the Sioux Falls Storm rose to the occasion in the second half of last nights United Conference Championship game, outscoring the Green Bay blizzard 33-16.

Even without Head Coach Kurtiss Riggs in the locker room, the message at the break was clear.

"I mean we've been here before. Think about it. All season long we've been put in every situation and we didn't back down and we did what we were supposed to do," Storm QB Chris Dixon said.

Chris Dixon and Clinton Solomon hooked up 3 times in the victory, and the Thunder D made big plays at the right time in a 61-42 win.

"We knew it was going to be a close game and it was going to be hard to beat a team 3 times. We knew without coach Riggs we had to really stick together and we stuck together, went in at halftime and made some adjustments and came out with the win," Storm WR Clinton Solomon said.

The team hasn't shied away from lofty expectations all year. In fact they've embraced them.
And while the Storm has a veteran squad, the newcomers are ready to leave their mark in the franchises record books.

"I really want to win a championship and that's why I came here. This is the closest I've ever been to a championship so that's what I came out thinking," Storm LB Xavier Jordan said.

And now with that goal just one win away, the Storm's cross-hairs are locked firmly on Tri-Cities.

""Our eyes are on the prize to play ni the championship game. From day one our goal was to win the championship and now we've got there and its time to go win it," Solomon said.

"It's one game now. There's no 14 games. We can leave it all hang out and leave it all on the field," Dixon said.
