Sioux City dug itself into a 32-12 halftime hole, but used a monster second half to pull within three late in the fourth quarter.
Their resiliency, has Head Coach Erv Strohbeen believing the Bandits can finish the job the second time around.
"You know this team right now is on a roll," Head Coach Erv Strohbeen said. "We're super confident going in there that we can be the first team to beat this Wichita Wild squad since 2012 at their home arena. While it'd be nice to win in front of our fans, it'd be nice to break their home winning streak and win a championship there."
