Game Preview: Barnstormers vs. Rattlers
Iowa Barnstormers Host Home Opener Saturday, March 10

DES MOINES - The Iowa Barnstormers (1-0) return to Des Moines for their 2018 home opener as they face off against reigning Indoor Football League (IFL) Champions, the Arizona Rattlers (1-0) on Saturday, March 10, 2018. Kickoff is set for 7:05 p.m. CST at Wells Fargo Arena.

The Iowa Barnstormers are looking to extend their undefeated season as they take on the Arizona Rattlers in their home opener. Before their week two bye, the Barnstormers defense helped shutdown the Green Bay Blizzard in the season opener as Iowa walked away with a commanding 41-20 win on the road. Quarterback Drew Powell, who is currently leading the IFL in passing yards per game, was key in the team’s week one victory. Barnstormers wide receiver Ryan Balentine also made his mark week one, leading the league in receiving yards per game and receiving touchdowns.

The Rattlers began the 2018 season at home in a championship rematch against the Sioux Falls Storm. In a close game, the Rattlers defense was able to force a momentum swinging safety that would give them a 32-30 lead with 41 seconds remaining in the game. Rattlers running back Jeff Ziemba found the end zone on a five-yard running play, increasing the Rattlers lead 39-30. Despite a strong last drive by the Storm, the Rattlers were able to hold their lead ending the game with a win.
