The Sioux Falls Storm (16-0) will host the Tri-Cities Fever (14-2) for the Indoor Football League title at 7:05 p.m. July 14 at the Sioux Falls Arena.
Aberdeen Roncalli grad Dan O'Keefe (safety), Aberdeen Central grad Cory Johnsen (defensive tackle) and Doland grad Blake Wilson (wide receiver) are members of the Storm. Tickets: ticketmaster.com.
Sioux Falls will have coach Kurtiss Riggs back for the championship. The league suspended Riggs for the first two playoff games for overcompensation involving transportation for players.
It's just a credit to our coaching staff and our entire team that we're here, Johnsen told the Argus Leader after the Storm defeated Green Bay Saturday to advance to the finals. We took the adversity and just came together. We were more of a true team these last two weeks than we were all year. We had each other's backs, trusted our coaches, and now we're playing for another championship.
