Ben Raveling put the Tornadoes on the board first with a 15 yard touchdown run capping off a six-play 80 yard touchdown drive the point after attempt was no good and it was a 6-0 lead. Wiegert then recovered a Braves fumble to give Storm Lake the ball right back and eight plays later he would take it in from a yard out to make it a 13-0 lead. Cherokee's only touchdown came on a 25 yard TD pass from Alex Paulsrud to Ryan Hurd and it was 13-6 but the Tornadoes came back with a score late in the first half when Drieth took it in from 16 yards out and it was 20-6 at the break.

Jesus Soto capped the scoring with a 4-yard touchdown run, Soto had a good night running the ball too as he had eight rushes for 81 yards. David Soto, in his first varsity start at quarterback, was 6-for-10 through the air and threw a 24 yard touchdown to Jailen Hansen in the 3rd quarter, he was intercepted once.
Storm Lake had 475 yards of offense while Cherokee had just 159. Pualsrud finished 10-for-33 for 146 yards and one pick (by Tate Mattson). Last night's win was the 9th for Storm Lake in the last 10 meetings with the Braves.
