Last Time Out

Quarterback Randy Hippeard passed for six touchdowns, four of those to receiver Justin Hilton as the Tampa Bay Storm defeated the New Orleans VooDoo, 62-57,  in the opening-season Arena Football League game on the Amalie Oil Field Friday at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

It was four key defensive plays, including a net recovery touchdown by defensive back Rod Issac in the second quarter and a 42-yard fumble recovery by Chris Smith to open the fourth period that ignited the Storm (1-0). Smith’s exciting return gave the Storm a 55-45 margin at 11:33 of the 4th quarter.

Hippeard was 18 of 27 for 288 yards and connected with Hilton on the opening 24-yard pass and again for 12, 42 and 33 yards.
