Game Recap: Nebraska Danger vs. Iowa Barnstormers

 

Saturday night the Indoor Football League (IFL) provided a very intriguing match-up between the Nebraska Danger and the Iowa Barnstormers. The game took place in Des Moines, Iowa at the Wells Fargo Center. The Danger find themselves currently at a 4-3 record and sit 4th overall in league standing while the Barnstormers find themselves with a 4-2 record and currently sit in the 3rd overall position.

The first half of the game looked very good as both teams played very well both offensively and defensively.

Starting off the 1st quarter the Barnstormers found themselves on Grant Rohach 47 yard pass to Brady Roland to give the Barnstormers the early 6-0 lead after a missed extra point by Cody Barber. But the Barnstormers quickly saw that lead vanish as on the Dangers next possession Jesse Scroggins found Gregory Dent on a 7 yard pass to take the lead by 1. The quarter wasn’t over just yet as both teams would carry the momentum and score one more time in the quarter. The Barnstormers would be the first team to score again Brady Roland found himself running the ball 3 yards for a touchdown but Cody Barber would miss his second extra point of the quarter. Again, on the Dangers next possession they would ultimately regain the lead and would carry it into the 2nd quarter after Jess Scroggins found Eric Thomas on a 4 yard pass to end the quarter.Image result for Nebraska Danger vs. Iowa Barnstormers

The biggest quarter scoring wise came before halftime and the Barnstormers were the first to find the end zone in the 2nd quarter. The Barnstormers were able to score off of a Cody Barber 26 yard kick to give the team a one point lead. Brad Hatfield had the same idea as he was able to make a 25 yard field goal to regain the lead for the Danger with 7:26 remaining before halftime. After the 5 minute mark the Barnstormer went on to score two more times as Cody Barber would make a 21 yard field goal but the Danger wouldn’t let this slow them down as they went on to find the end zone as Jesse Scroggins connected with Eric Thomas on a 31 yard pass. The Barnstormers were the final team to have possession before halftime and quarterback Grant Rohach saw an opening and ran the ball 8 yard into the end zone.
