Late First-Half Flurry Helps Storm End Slide 56-35

Posted May 24th, 2014 @ 10:34pm

The Storm scored two touchdowns in the final second of the first half en route to a 56-35 victory over Jacksonville Saturday night at the Forum.

Randy Hippeard returned from a leg injury to throw for six touchdowns, and the Storm offense was not stopped until the game was decided in the fourth quarter.

T.T. Toliver made a great catch against the wall with one second left in the half for a 35-21 lead. The ensuing kickoff hit off the upright and became a wild scramble, with James Harrell recovering for the touchdown and 42-21 halftime advantage.

Tampa Bay ended a five-game losing streak and at 4-6 finds itself one game behind the teams tied for the final American Conference playoff spot, Philadelphia and Iowa. The Storm play both teams in June.

Tolliver caught three touchdowns with Hills adding two.

A season-high crowd of 12, 501 was on hand.

Rod Isaac and Harrell made continual big hits on defense for the Storm. The defense got a stop on Jacksonville's first drive and added two in the third quarter, one on an Isaac interception off the net.
