Storm win wild one in Iowa

Tampa Bay Storm quarterback Adrian McPherson hit Joe Hills for a 3-yard touchdown pass with no time left as Tampa Bay (6-5) rallied for a 65-62 victory against the Iowa Barnstormers in Des Moines. Iowa quarterback J.J. Raternick sneaked in from the 1-yard line with 23 seconds left to give the Barnstormers a 62-58 lead. Pernell Phillips sacked Raternick for a safety with 56 seconds left to put the Storm ahead 58-56, but McPherson overthrew a wide-open Hills on fourth down to give Iowa the ball at the 11-yard line. McPherson threw for six touchdowns and ran for three to lead the Storm. St. Petersburg Catholic graduate Chris Davis caught 10 passes for 89 yards and two touchdowns, and Hills had nine catches for 120 yards and three TDs.
