The Virginia Storm's defense scored three touchdowns and had a safety, helping the team to a 34-16 win over the Richmond County Golden Bears in their opening game at the Smith River Sports Complex on Saturday.

The Storm's defensive TDs were highlighted by Jeff Redd's 109-yard interception return for a touchdown, which set a team record, according to coach Chris Weeks. That play came with under five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter to put the game away. The Martinsville-based team also had fumble recoveries for touchdowns in both the first and second quarters to give the Storm a 16-10 lead at the half. Then the Storm defense started the third with a safety to take an 18-10 lead. The Storm's only offensive score came on a 90-yard quarterback sneak by Kenny Perry early in the fourth quarter. Perry finished 4-of-17 for 29 yards passing and rushed for 104 yards on four carries. Richmond County quarterback Michael Johnson completed 5 of 18 passes and had three interceptions.
