GAME RECAP

Tonight the Tampa Bay Storm offense could never get on track and it all started with an unlucky bounce.

The Storm drove down the field on its first possession of the night, thanks to a great play by quarterback Randy Hippeard who found Joe Hills deep in San Antonio Talons territory.  

However, on the next play Hippeard targeted Hills again in the back of the endzone, but the ball deflected off of Hills’ hands and then ricocheted off of the field goal post landing in the hands of Talons defensive back Fred Shaw. San Antonio would go onto score after the interception...

LAST WEEK'S PERFORMANCE

The Tampa Bay Storm did what it had to do early on tonight against the Spokane Shock to give itself a chance to win, but the Storm could not finish business.

On the game’s first possession, Storm defensive back Vance Cuff stepped in front of Shock quarterback Erik Meyer’s pass. The following possession would lead to a Michael Lindsey touchdown catch.

More good fortune came the Storm’s way when Chris Davis recovered a kickoff with under a minute left in the first half after the ball took a Storm bounce off of the field goal post.

Storm quarterback Randy Hippeard would run it in from one yard out a couple plays later, putting Tampa Bay up by 14 with 28 seconds remaining in the half.

Then came the game’s turning point...
