Perhaps the most devastating storm in Martinsville in 2013 has gone largely unnoticed.
But after a 10-0 regular season, the self-dubbed “quiet” Storm has no intentions of going quietly as it heads into the playoffs.
The Virginia Storm, an AAA Minor League Football team with the East Coast Football Association (ECFA) based in Martinsville, will host its first playoff game Saturday at the Smith River Sports Complex at 7 p.m.
The Smith River Sports Complex (SRSC) will host the Virginia Association of Christian Athletics (VACA) high school girls state soccer tournament this weekend, today and Saturday.
There will be two games played this evening at 5:00 p.m. — Dayspring vs. Fresta and Shenandoah Valley vs. Southwest Virginia Home School. On Saturday, at 10:00 a.m., the consolation game will be played between the losers of today’s games. At noon on Saturday, the championship game will be played.
“We’re pleased to host this state championship here at SRSC. We always enjoy being able to offer up our facility to participants that may not always have a chance to play here,” said Billy Russo, Director of Operations for the SRSC.
