20 restaurants and businesses from all across Central Nebraska will be converging on the Heartland Event Center on Friday, May 18 for the first-ever Taste of the Heartland. The food-driven event will occur in conjunction with the Nebraska Danger home game against the Green Bay Blizzard.
The last time the Green Bay Blizzard and the Nebraska Danger met up on the gridiron, it was far too early in the year to know how the teams would perform. In that game, the Danger won comfortably 59-23, propelling them to a 2-0 start while the Blizzard fell to 0-2.
In a game that saw the Nebraska Danger playing from behind from the outset, running back Angelo Pease put together his best game of the season. Before Friday night’s 62-48 setback, Pease had never surpassed 50 yards rushing in a game or ran for more than one TD in a game.
The Storm took the opening game in the three-game regular season series, but it didn’t come easy for the perennial IFL power. The Storm escaped the Heartland Events Center with a 45-37 win over Nebraska.
This past Saturday’s road game against the Iowa Barnstormers is one to forget as the Danger offense got shut out in the second half en route to a 41-25 loss, but as with any team or any game, there’s always a bright spot – even in defeat.
In the second match-up between the Nebraska Danger and Iowa Barnstormers, both teams will be looking to separate themselves from the middle of the pack in the IFL, and to keep up with Arizona and Sioux Falls, who are both 4-1 entering Week 8 of the season.
