BK Storm Building Momentum Towards The Playoffs

After a 0-4 start, BK Storm is looking to pull the rug out from everyone and steal a championship. Sunday's win over Cool Runnings marks their 3rd win a row and also clinches them a wild card berth in the Southern Conference.

"When we click on all cylinders," said BK Storm captain Disco Gumbs, "we feel we are unbeatable. We're out to show that the 0-4 start was just a fluke for us and our offense and defense is a force to be reckoned with."

Gumbs contributed a catch for 20 yards, 8 tackles and an interception on defense.

Storm WR Tayvon Francis, subbing for last week's offensive player of the week QB Rob Crawford, took snaps under center and like a whirlwind, blew by the porous Cool Runnings' defense en route to 175 all purpose yards, including 129 on the ground. He showed his speed and elusiveness on the first drive, breaking a 60 yard run for a touchdown. Francis followed the touchdown with a 46 yard run, which set up a 2 yard pitch and catch to WR Andre Newsome on their next possession. Cool Runnings would answer back with a long drive and a 5 yard touchdown toss from QB Eijaz Khan to WR Gregory Young to bring the score to 16-6 going into the half.

BK Storm's offensive onslaught continued into the second half, when WR Kenny Wall took over at QB and found WR Terrell Ellis twice, for a 40 and a 32 yard touchdown strike to put the game out of reach. Cool Runnings were unable to get much going in the second half, falling to 0-7, and officially eliminated from playoff contention.

"It's been a struggle all year with injuries," said Gregory Young, captain of Cool Runnings, "We left it out all on the field, but at the end of the day, we were not able to make the plays to win games. I am grateful for the effort that our guys put forth and the fact that they never quit on me all season through all this adversity."

BK Storm will meet the Saints(5-2) in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs, with the winner to meet the Stallions in the conference round..
