GAME PREVIEW: Barnstormers @ Storm

DES MOINES – In a rematch of last year’s United Bowl, the undefeated Iowa Barnstormers (6-0) travel to take on the Sioux Falls Storm (5-1) this Saturday, April 20. Kickoff is set for 7:05 p.m. CST at the Denny Sanford Premier Center.

The Barnstormers are coming off a dominant performance last week, in which they beat the Bismarck Bucks on the road 55-16. The league-leading Barnstormers defense shined all night against the Bucks, forcing five turnovers. The defensive backfield were responsible for four of those turnovers. Defensive back Tyrell Pearson had two interceptions and fellow defensive back Jourdan Wickliffe recovered two fumbles. On offense, quarterback Daquan Neal led the charge, passing for five touchdowns and rushing for one.

The Storm were on a bye last week, but their last victory also came against the Bismarck Bucks, 64-31, on April 6. The only loss for Sioux Falls came against the only other undefeated team in the IFL – The Arizona Rattlers. The Storm are led by quarterback Lorenzo Brown Jr., who has thrown for 16 touchdowns and rushed for 10 in six games. His favorite target is receiver Brandon Sheperd, who averages a league-leading 71.7 yards per game. The Storm’s defense will look to slow down a hot Barnstormers offense that average 52.2 points per game.

The last matchup between these two teams came in July of 2018, when the Barnstormers won the United Bowl. Fans can catch the rematch live at 7:00 p.m. CST on YouTube.

The Iowa Barnstormers return home to Wells Fargo Arena on Saturday, May 4 to take on the Cedar Rapids River Kings. Kickoff is at 7:05pm. It’s Star Wars Night! The first 500 kids at the game will receive a free light saber. The game will also feature the 3rd Annual Halftime Corgi Chase in partnership with the Animal Rescue League of Iowa. Tickets to the game are available now, contact the Barnstormers front office at 515-633-2255.
