Perfect Storm Claim IFL Crown

July 15, 2012, 10:43 PM by Jim Madalinsky

Perfect Storm Claim IFL Crown
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

17 up and 17 down.

That was the goal for the Sioux Falls Storm all year. Their 59-32 win over Tri-Cities helped them capture their 2nd straight IFL championship, and provided a perfect ending to a tumultuous season.

High expectations are never easy to live up to, but through all the distractions, both on and off the field, the Sioux Falls Storm never lost focus.

"It feels even bigger to say that we did it in a perfect way. Can't nobody say that we're not perfect. Everybody's strives for perfection and you know nobody's perfect, but if you strive for it you can almost get there and I can finally say out record is perfect," Storm QB Chris Dixon said.

With a 59-32 win the Storm captured their 2nd straight IFL Championship, but while the final score looks like domination, early on that wasn't the case, as head coach Kurtiss Riggs made his return to the sideline following a two game suspension.

"Well I came out and called some plays where we turned the ball over so that was the first thing I did, but you know the guys played great and the guys did a great job making sure we took control of the game and took over," Kurtiss Riggs said.

Leading by just two points at the break, the Storm turned to the defense to flip the script, and United Bowl MVP Jeremiah Price was the man for the job. 6 tackles, 2 sacks, and 2 safeties later, the Storm had their trophy.

"Just another championship to add to your legacy and I'm just happy to be a part of it honestly," Jeremiah Price said.
