SIOUX FALLS, S.D. --
After making bold promises of victory the Cedar Rapids Titans could stop the Storm from winning their 33rd straight game at the Arena and returning to the United Bowl.
The Storm beat the Titans 44-20 in last night's United Conference title game. Terrance Bryant threw for 180 yards and a pair of touchdowns to James Terry.
The story of the game was the Storm Thunder defense, a unit that Cedar Rapids coaches had said their offense would easily handle coming into the game.
The Titans scored just ten points over the game's final three quarters and managed just 147 yards of total offense.
"Big team win, team victory. We all came out and played together. It was just a fun environment and just to go back to the United Bowl is a privilege in itself." Storm Linebacker Tyler Knight said.
"Their offensive coordinator, I mean, he touted how great their offense was and how well they would be against our defense. And so I think our defense kind of got the last word. They played a great game. I think we kind of showed that the game out at Cedar Rapids was just, we played poorly and they got after us, and we are the better team." Storm Head Coach Kurtiss Riggs said.
"We not here just to win games. Sioux Falls Storm are here to win championships and we got a chance to win another championship for the city of Sioux Falls." Storm Quarterback Terrance Bryant says.
And that chance is next Saturday at 7:05 at the Arena against the Nebraska Danger.
These two teams split in the regular season, with the Storm losing 31-20 at Nebraska on March 2nd, and returning the favor 43-41 at the Arena on May 4th.
