Game Preview: Iowa Barnstormers vs. Sioux Falls Storm
Barnstormers Host Storm in IFL Week 10

DES MOINES – The Iowa Barnstormers (2-5) are set to host the Sioux Falls Storm (7-0) on Saturday, May 2nd. Kickoff is set for 7:05 p.m. CDT at Wells Fargo Arena in downtown Des Moines, Iowa. The game will be available live on Mediacom MC22 and 822 HD, WHO 1040 AM, and online via IFLLive.tv.

This week’s matchup between the Iowa Barnstormers and the Sioux Falls Storm is the final meeting of the teams’ back-to-back regular season IFL games. Last week, the Barnstormers were hosted by the Storm in Sioux Falls, South Dakota when the Storm controlled the game and swept the victory, 87-11. In a game plagued by Barnstormers turnovers, the experienced Sioux Falls team took advantage of each extra opportunity. Scoring over fifty points in the first half, the Storm made it difficult for the Barnstormers offense to keep the pace. Iowa’s scoring drives included a missed field goal attempt returned for a touchdown and three complete field goals by kicker Josh Gable, including 52 yard boot.

In order for the Barnstormers to steal the victory from the Storm, the team will need to control the pace of the game on both offense and defense. Taking care of the ball and executing offensively while limiting the Storms’ opportunities defensively will be key for the home team this week. Sioux Falls is known for their intense run game, so the Barnstormers rushing defense will play an important role in the matchup.

Barnstormers receiver Lemans Casimier currently leads the IFL in receptions per game (6.67) while the team’s top defensive player, Javicz Jones, has collected 42 total tackles, 31 solo and 22 assists, throughout the season. Meanwhile, Storm quarterback Lorenzo Brown is currently the League’s top performer in terms of pass completion percent (69.7).
