RECAP

The Storm (1-7, 0-4) came out tonight and finally got the job done winning their first game of the season against the Arizona Rattlers (6-3, 4-0), 63-56. After just barely losing their last two games in the final minute, T.T. Toliver came out ready for a change, scoring not only the winning touchdown with just three seconds left of play, but also his 100 th career catch for the Storm.

“I just go out there everyday and try to play my hardest,” Toliver said. “We came out today and executed our game plan. I’m excited for everybody.”

This was the Storm’s 18 th meeting with Arizona, and they now lead the matchup 11-7. A win today was what the team needed to finally turn the season around and get back to their winning ways.
