GAME RECAP

The Tampa Bay Storm came into tonight’s game against its rivals the Orlando Predators knowing turnovers would play a key role in the game’s outcome.

Unfortunately, even though each team turned the ball over twice, the Storm’s turnovers came at the most inopportune time.

Rashad Barksdale intercepted Predators quarterback Aaron Garcia in the end zone and returned it for what looked to be the game tying touchdown with under a minute left in the game.
