Barnstormers Ousted from Playoffs by Storm 
Sioux Falls Defeats Iowa, 66-32

Des Moines – The Iowa Barnstormers were ousted from the playoffs when the Sioux Falls Storm defeated Iowa in the United Conference Championship game, 66-32, Saturday night at the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Iowa started the game striking first against the Storm when defensive back Dee Maggitt, Jr. returned the opening kick for a 53 yard touchdown. Sioux Falls answered back, matching the play with a returned kickoff, 7-7. The Storm picked up momentum, scoring 28 unanswered points before the Barnstormers struck with a 6 yard rushing touchdown from running back Rasheed Williams. The Storm ended the half with a field goal adding another 3 points to their lead, 38-14.

The Barnstormers started the second half giving up back-to-back touchdown runs to Storm running back Robbie Rouse, 52-14. Iowa made it in the end zone to close out the third quarter but a failed two point conversion prohibited the team from adding extra points to the board trailing 52-20. The Barnstormers struck again at the start of the fourth quarter with a touchdown reception from Brady Roland, but once again failed to make the two point conversion, 52-26. The Storm managed to strike again, 58-26, before the Barnstormers could answer with a score of their own, 58-32. The Storm sealed their victory with one final touchdown, ousting the Barnstormers from the playoffs 66-32.
