A pair of long-time rivals collide this weekend as Simpson hosts Central in the Iowa Conference opener for both teams. The Storm opened two weeks ago with a hard fought 13-7 win over Illinois Wesleyan. Simpson coach Jay Niemann says the quarterback was the biggest unknown going, and Jacob Johnson had a solid first game. Nieman says both teams enter the game with some momentum. He says Central had a huge overtime win over Bethal.Last week’s victory was the first for Jeff McMartin as Central coach. He was part of this rivalry while a player at Central. He says the schools are close geographically, and both schools have had good teams, and that makes it fun.Simpson had a huge advantage in time of possession in the opening game and McMartin says the Dutch defense will need to get the Storm offense off the field to be successful.
