Storm takes stumble 

05/13/01 Adam Thaler Argus Leader
They talked trash before the game and after the game. In between, the Sioux City Bandits did just enough to back up their talk. 

In a hard-hitting contest filled with strong defenses, missed field goals and quite a bit of jawing, the Bandits beat the Sioux Falls Storm 31-28 before 3,336 National Indoor Football League fans Saturday night at the Arena.

Lamont Truitt's 1-yard touchdown run with 30.5 seconds left put the Bandits in front, but their victory wasn't secure until Storm kicker Nate Krull's 33-yard field-goal attempt went wide right with 6.6 seconds to play. Full story>>

Game has additional meaning for rivals

05/12/01 ADAM THALER Argus Leader
Storm coach Mike Aldrich spent all week telling his team that tonight is just another football game.

"Business as usual," he said.

But it'll be understandable if his players think differently by the 7:05 p.m. kickoff against the Sioux City Bandits at the Arena.

After all, there are more factors playing into this growing rivalry than simply the proximity of the cities involved.

"There's a lot of stuff behind the scenes with the players and the coaches," Sioux City coach Carl Reinhardt said. "This game brings a lot to the table."

For instance, both National Indoor Football League franchises have the same eight owners. Full story>>

Storm seeks to stay perfect

Team faces 3rd in row on road 

When Sioux Falls Storm coach Mike Aldrich looked over his team's schedule before the season, he had an idea which stretch would be the most difficult. 

In a span of 15 days from late April to early May, the Storm would have to play in Casper, Wyo.; Provo, Utah; and Biloxi, Miss. 

That's an easy travel schedule if you're the Harlem Globetrotters, but it's not when your players have day jobs and you normally travel by bus. 

"I figured regardless of the matchups or who we were playing, three straight road games with those distances built into it --it was definitely going to be a challenge," Aldrich said. Full story>>
