The Sioux City Bandits will travel to Albuquerque, New Mexico to face Duke City in the Champions Indoor Football league title game on Saturday at 7:05 p.m.
Tom Petty was right. Sometimes waiting is the hardest part.
After the Sioux City Bandits defeated the Salina Liberty 45-39 to win the North Conference championship of the Champions Indoor Football league Saturday night, they had to wait until late Monday night to find out who their opponent would be in the Champions Bowl.
They were the North Division’s top two teams during the regular season.
Saturday night, the Salina Liberty and Sioux City Bandits will determine who’s best — the prize a chance to play for the Champions Indoor Football title.
The Sioux City redemption tour continues with a road trip.
Sioux City opened up the playoffs last week with a 54-46 victory over Quad Cities, now the Bandits play for the North Conference title Saturday against Salina. Both Quad Cities and Salina handed Sioux City a loss during a three-game skid that was sandwiched by a four-game winning streak before it and the current six victories the team has enjoyed since.
Sometimes the best praise can come from rivals.
Sioux City Bandits head coach Erv Strohbeen recently was at Wayne State for a football camp with his son. Wayne State head coach Dan McLaughlin was curious how Strohbeen got current Bandits safety and former University of Sioux Falls star cornerback Solomon St. Pierre.
The Bandits advance to the CIF semifinals with a 54-46 victory over Quad City Saturday night at the Tyson Events Center.
Sioux City will travel to Salina Saturday night for a chance at a spot in the CIF title game. The Liberty took the lone meeting between the two, 60-58, back on April 28. This game gets underway at 6:30 p.m.
Sioux City's offense was a bit sloppier and less efficient than the last few weeks, but the Bandits gutted out a 54-46 win over the Quad Cities Steamwheelers in the opening round of the CIF playoffs at the Tyson Events Center here Saturday.
Darrian Miller scored five touchdowns, the Bandits outscored Quad City 28-15 in the fourth quarter and Sioux City beat the Steamwheelers on Saturday, 54-46.
Miller scored every Bandits touchdown in the first half, but Quad City kept the pace. Quarterback EJ Hilliard accounted for all three Steamwheelers touchdowns in the first half (two passing, one rushing).
A fast start was spoiled Saturday night by a disappointing finish for the Quad-City Steamwheelers.
The local Champions Indoor Football squad saw their season ended by the Sioux City Bandits, 54-46 in a playoff opener at the Tyson Events Center.
The Journal's Jeff Budlong and Charlie Hildebrand talk Sioux City Bandits football and their first-round playoff game against Quad Cities.
When a championship is the goal every season finishing without one the past two seasons always makes it tough to take. Saturday the Sioux City Bandits will look to take their first step to adding to their collection of three titles.
The Bandits had a streaky regular season. Sioux City won four straight games, then lost three in a row, before finishing with five consecutive wins.
With the conclusion of the 2018 regular season, the teams vying for the Champions Indoor Football league championship have been established.
Darrian Miller ran for 117 yards on 17 carries, Liam Nadler threw six touchdowns passes and the Sioux City Bandits defeated the Bismarck Bucks 71-50 in Sioux City’s final Champions Indoor Football game of the regular season at the Tyson Events Center here Saturday.
It is not nine straight wins, but there is no denying that it feels like something very similar is in the process of happening.
In 2015, the Sioux City Bandits began their season 2-3 before not losing again over the course of their next nine games to claim the Champions Indoor Football Championship.
