Storm wins championship in Cutters division

Scott County Storm won its first VFL league championship in four years on Saturday, pitching a shutout and scoring a 12-0 victory over Norwood in the Cutters division on a soggy, sloppy Saturday afternoon.

The Storm, which wrapped up a perfect season in the Cutters age group, at 9-0, was making its first championship game appearance since 2013, when they finished runners-up.

The weather played a factor in the game. But the Storm defense was an even bigger disruptor than the weather. The Storm’s defensive line got penetration, and the secondary kept containment on the corners, which made it difficult for Norwood to advance the ball beyond the line of scrimmage and prevented it from reaching the end zone. Norwood turned the ball over on each of its first three possessions, and had a total of six turnovers for the game.

Thanks to the excellent field position provided by the defense, Storm’s offense was able to accomplish just enough to secure the win. Carter Slaven scored a touchdown early in the game, and Blayne McConnell connected with Kaden Harness late for an insurance touchdown.
