Recap

For the second straight game, Tampa Bay quarterback Randy Hippeard rallied the Storm on a last-minute touchdown drive to snatch victory from potential heartbreak.

Two weeks ago, Hippeard ran into the end zone from three yards out in the closing seconds to beat the Cleveland Gladiators.

On Sunday with the Storm trailing Baltimore 55-54 late, Hippeard found a wide-open LaMark Brown in the back of the end zone with five ticks on the clock to pull off another last-second victory for Tampa Bay. The Storm defeated Baltimore 62-55 in the first-ever home game for the expansion Brigade and improved to 3-1 on the season, just one game behind Philadelphia at the top of the Arena Football League standings.
