2016 Home Opener

The defending IFL Champions, and head coach Kurtiss Riggs' Sioux Falls Storm, face the Cedar Rapids Titans at 7:05pm (Centeral Time) on Friday, February 26th, 2016, in their home opener.  Over 7,000 tickets have already been sold for this event last weekend.  I wound-up with tickets in the upper level, myself.

I had signed-up for a deal where for every ticket sold, the Sioux Falls Storm will donate $5.00 to the SD Junior Football program for our local youth.  I am sure that other lower level tickets might be available, but not many, and I wanted to sign-up for this deal because I wanted to (indirectly) help-out the SD Jr Football program.

The Sioux Falls Storm dominated Chris Dixon II's Billings Wolves last Saturday in their first away game of the season, coming home with an impressive win.  The Wolves were on fire when they finally started getting together in the fourth quarter, but the Storm Defense had held them to only 7 points in the first three quarters and piled on the points through to the end of the 3rd quarter, when the score was 41-7.  The final score of 51-28 shows that the Wolves have the right leadership and the drive to make things happen, fighting to the very last.  I really do expect the Wolves to become a major contender in the IFL this year.

The Cedar Rapids Titans won their home opener in a 39-15 contest against the Green Bay Blizzard.  Although the Cedar Rapids Titans are a young team, they probably hold a grudge after falling to the Sioux Falls Storm in the United Conference Championship game a few years back.

Both teams will be walking into the Storm Shelter at the Denny Sanford Premier Center (in Sioux Falls) with a 1 & 0 win-loss record for the season.  This could prove to be quite a good game.  I'm looking forward to it.

The game will be video streamed through the internet world wide web by IFL Live TV.

You can find out more about the youth football program at the South Dakota Junior Football website.  It's a great program for kids to learn the basics of football the right way, and the organization helps develop and establish young strong players.
