Storm to face similar team in Knights

(Continued)

“It is a goal that we always want to see and against a team like this, it could make a difference because we would not have to change our routine to get ready,” Plotner said. “It is always good for the kids and it is great for the community to come out and support them.”

With these two teams, who have only lost to undefeated teams in the Blue Devils and Cerro Gordo, Plotner says this will be an early game to watch in the playoffs.

“If you go to the playoffs, you expect to play games like this when a 8-1 team plays a 7-2 team,” Plotner said. “This might be one of the most anticipated game of the first week and even in this program’s history.”

The game will start at 1 p.m.
