Des Moines, Iowa – The Iowa Barnstormers kept their playoff hopes alive with their most complete effort in over a month as they defeated the Utah Blaze 68-32 before 9,542 fans at Wellmark Field in Des Moines on Saturday night. With the win, Iowa improves to 5-6, while Utah drops their seventh straight game to fall to 1-10. The Barnstormers are now in sole possession of third place in the AFL’s Midwest Division.
 
Iowa dominated the game from the beginning, scoring on every drive in the first half and taking a commanding 49- 26 lead into the locker room. In the second half, it was the Barnstormers defense that dominated, limiting the Blaze to just six points in the final thirty minutes.
