After a scoreless first quarter, the Vikings took the lead as Travis Christensen capped a 37 yards drive, scoring on an 11 yard pass from Dallas Stevens late in the second quarter. The Vikings scored three times in the third quarter.
Kody Kraus opened the second half by intercepting a Blake Kinart pass at the Pima 20, returning the ball to the eleven. Five plays later, Christensen had his second touchdown of the night on a one yard run, making it 14-0. Pima was soon forced to punt again. Robbie Haas then connected with Jon Clark for 54 yards.
Pima stiffened and forced Ricks to take three points with a 37 yard field goal by Jason Wood. Down 17-0, Pima used the scrambling and passing of quarterbacks Kinart and Dan Camacho to start a comeback.
Driving to the Viking 23, Kinart was intercepted for a second time. This time Viking cornerback Ben Allen picked off the pass and returned it 90 yards for a touchdown and a 24-0 lead. Pima came right back, driving 92 yards and scoring on a four yard run by Andre Gayles.
The Storm defense held, and the offense moved again, this time 78 yards in six plays with an 18 yard pass from Camacho to Kyle Lunsford. The Vikings kept Pima's comeback hopes alive by muffing a punt attempt, but time ran out as Pima missed a 22 yard field goal.
