Week 6 Preview

Iowa Barnstormers vs Chicago Rush
Saturday April 16, 2011
Kickoff: 7:05pm CST


Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield Field, Wells Fargo Arena
Des Moines, Iowa


2011 Record: 2-2 (1-0 at home, 1-2 on the road) Streak: Lost 1

Third Place, National Conference, Central Division

The BARNSTORMERS Last Week:

The Barnstormers were unable to continue their winning streak as they lost to their division rivals, the Kansas City Command, 62-48.  The Command took the early lead and controlled the game for most of the way,  but the Barnstormers rallied from what was a 15-point deficit to tie the game at 41-41 in the fourth quarter.  However a costly turnover on special teams put the Barnstormers down by two scores with 3 minutes remaining and was too much to overcome.  Kansas City collected their first victory of the season improving to 1-3, while the Barnstormers fell to 2-2 on the season. 

 

Week 6 Match Up:

The Iowa Barnstormers (2-2) will suit up against another conference rival and former Barnstormer Jason Simpson this week versus the Chicago Rush (3-1), for their fifth game of the 2011 season.  Following up on a fairly successful season last year, the Rush are currently ranked first in the National Conference, Central Division while the Barnstormers have dropped to third.  Jason Simpson currently leads the Rush in interceptions with 4 and is third in returning yards with 233, averaging 58.2 yards per game.  Although both teams are coming off a game four loss, this will no doubt be a high intensity game and a battle to the end.

 

    
The RUSH Last Week:

The Chicago Rush were on the road last week in a non-conference match up against the Cleveland Gladiators (3-0).  Currently ranked first in the American Conference, East Division, the Gladiators showed no mercy on the Rush as they took control of the game, winning 55-48 in regulation play.  The Gladiators were the first team on the board four minutes into the game and although the Rush were able to hang on throughout the first quarter, Cleveland took charge in the second and never allowed Chicago to regain the lead.  This marked the first loss for the Chicago Rush this season.
