Joe Salerno's men managed a 25-point fourth quarter to close out the scrappy affair at Moncton Coliseum.

Morgan Lewis led the Storm and the game with 22 points on 7-14 shooting.

The Storm were able to shut down James Justice in impressive fashion, limiting the guard to 10 points on 3-12 shooting.
