Blizzard fall in back-and-forth battle
ASHWAUBENON – It was a hard-fought contest that came down to the final minutes of the game, but the Green Bay Blizzard fell just short of a victory on April 21, losing 47-55.
Green Bay (2-3) hosted their Indoor Football League conference rivals, the Sioux Falls Storm (2-2), just five days after beating the Storm 47-41 in Sioux Falls.
Rookie quarterback Ja’rome Johnson continued to dominate both with his arm and on his legs, tossing three touchdowns and rushing for two.
Wide receiver Marquise Irvin hauled in two of Johnson’s touchdown passes, while second-year veteran Shaq Curenton pulled down the other.
Running back Terrence Smith also added a touchdown, his ninth on the year.
With over 7,600 fans in attendance for a sold-out “Youth Jersey Night” at the Resch Center, it
was the largest home crowd in Blizzard history.
Green Bay will be back in action for three straight home games in May, with Kids Night on May 5, Faith and Family Day on May 13 and a 20th Season Celebration on May 20.
