"Every player stepped up and played the best game we have played this year," commented Head Coach Adam Johnson.
"Dutch Ammerman started at center for us due to an injury and played a great game. Our offensive line made holes for the running game all night. As a coach, I couldn't ask for a better effort from our young team and we hope to build on this victory."
Next week the Storm travel to Lake of the Woods, then it's back home to take on Silver Bay on Oct. 6th then Littlefork-Big Falls at Hill City on Oct. 13th.
