KENNEWICK, Wash. -- In a game that featured 145 points, 37 penalties, and 626 yards of offense, the Sioux Falls Storm defeated the Tri-Cities Fever (10-2) in an overtime classic, 73-72 at the Toyota Center.

The Storm led 45-41 at halftime. The Fever was down 66-54 late in the fourth quarter, before Dennis Kennedy scored two rushing touchdowns to tie the game at 66.
