The Tampa Bay Storm routed the winless Kansas City Command on Monday night, securing a 63-46 home victory behind six Stephen Wasil touchdowns — five passing and one rushing.
It was a much-needed win for the Storm (4-3), who had lost two of their previous three, including a 35-point loss to the Philadelphia Soul.
The Storm defense, led by defensive back Lendy Holmes, forced five turnovers and limited the Command (0-6) to 21 points through three quarters.
Tampa Bay held a narrow 28-25 lead going into the final quarter, but two special teams touchdowns, a defensive touchdown and a pair of Wasil scoring passes helped the Storm stave off Kansas City’s comeback attempt.
