GAME RECAP

The Tampa Bay Storm had more reason than just Cinco de Mayo to celebrate Saturday night.

Coming off two straight wins, the team reveled in the jubilation of a third consecutive victory after defeating the South Division-rival New Orleans VooDoo 63-32 in front of a crowd of over 10,000 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

The victory, coming perhaps in what was Tampa Bay’s best all-around game all year, helped the club improve to 5-2 on the season, just one game back of the in-state rival Jacksonville Sharks for first place in the South Division standings.

New Orleans, meanwhile, dropped to 1-5 on the year, with its 32 points on Saturday night being its lowest total on the season thus far to date...

PRE-GAME CHATTER

"We've got a lot of good football players, and a lot of them who are leaders. Our quarterback is a leader, our core of receivers are leaders and we've got some big guys who are leaders. So, all of that helps offset some things in the locker room and it goes a long way in helping keep guys focused."

- Head Coach Dave Ewart

Last Week's Performance

The Tampa Bay Storm (4-2, 1-1) defeated the formerly undefeated Spokane Shock (5-1, 2-0) Saturday evening at the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena, in front of a crowd 9,872 fans, by a score of 70-62. The game saw the Storm defense intercept Erik Meyer twice, breaking his streak of 193 pass attempts without throwing an interception.

The Storm defense led the way in the first half holding the Shock’s high-powered offense to only seven points. The team made it a point to put pressure on Spokane's quarterback. The team believed that by applying pressure it would be able to force Meyer into throwing an interception. The strategy worked as the team would come away with two interceptions on the night. This was the Storm's fifth consecutive game with an interception. Defensive lineman Rodney Beamon had an interception to go along with his sack for a loss of 10 yards.
