Des Moines, IA – The Iowa Barnstormers (1-2) were defeated 47-46 by the Green Bay Blizzard (2-1) Sunday afternoon at the Resch Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

The Iowa Barnstormers and the Green Bay Blizzard rekindled an old rivalry while looking to advance to a winning record. During the first possession of the matchup, QB Robbie Nallenweg connected with WR Daron Clark for a 22-yard touchdown, 0-6. On the ensuing possession, quarterback Donovan Porterie found receiver Andre London, bringing the Green Bay team in the lead by one. A long 49-yard touchdown reception by Iowa-native Brady Roland followed by a Green Bay score kept up the momentum through the end of the first. Green Bay Blizzard 10, Iowa Barnstormers 14.

The Blizzard’s top receiver, Demarius Washington, tallied his first points of the night at the beginning of the second, 17-14. A back-and-forth matchup, the Blizzard found the end zone once again with the help of WR Donte Sawyer. Not allowing the Barnstormers to go scoreless in the second, the offense stepped up with touchdown in the air to receiver Daron Clark. Green Bay Blizzard 24, Iowa Barnstormers 20.

Coming out of the locker room, Green Bay’s Sawyer and Iowa’s Roland each scored their second touchdown of the game. Trying to make each drive count, the Blizzard kicked a field goal for a quick three points. Chris Bowden’s first-ever IFL touchdown followed by another score by Roland brought the Barnstormers back in the lead. Green Bay Blizzard 34, Iowa Barnstormers 39.

The five-point spread came down to the final moments of the game. After swapping touchdowns, the Blizzard pulled back in the game by adding on another six points. Now a one-point game, the Barnstormers had two minutes to finalize the scoreboard. After making their way down the field, the Barnstormers found themselves within the five yard marker, but were set back due to a false start penalty. Nallenweg tossed one deep in the end zone with the intention of reaching receiver Lemans Casimer, but was intercepted. Final score, Green Bay Blizzard 47, Iowa Barnstormers 46.
