Tampa Bay Storm falls to San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO, Texas — The Storm squandered an opportunity to lock up its first Arena Football playoff berth since 2010, suffering a 68-42 loss to San Antonio on Saturday night.

Tampa Bay has lost five in a row.

A Storm victory combined with New Orleans' (5-11) loss to Arizona would have put Tampa Bay (7-9) in the postseason behind South Division winner Jacksonville. Orlando (6-10) is also in contention with two games to play.

With his 8-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter, receiver Joe Hills broke the Storm record for touchdown catches in a season (37 in 2010 by Tampa Bay Tech grad Tyrone Simmons). Hills tied the mark with a 17-yarder in the first quarter and added a 16-yarder in the third quarter.

Tampa Bay's Randy Hippeard was 17-for-33 for 246 yards passing with four touchdowns but he threw three interceptions.

    And it's about time.

    Former Lightning captain Dave Andreychuk has been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. He had been eligible since 2009, a ridiculously long wait for someone who scored 640 goals, including a record 274 on the power play.
