The dark storm of the Halifax Hurricanes has finally been lifted for Prince Edward Island. Terry Thomas (6'4''-G/F-91)' 26 points led a spirited wire-to-wire effort at EastLink Arena as the Prince Edward Island Storm - having lost its previous five outings against the Halifax Hurricanes - took home a 112-103 win in a Sunday matinee in the National Basketball League of Canada. Renaldo Dixon (6'9''-C-90, college: N.Mexico St.)'s season-high 29 points paced Halifax. Trailing by double digits for the vast majority of the afternoon, the Hurricanes (22-7) battled its way back to a two possession game (107-101) with two minutes to go. Storm power forward A.J. Stewart then drove on the right side of the baseline and found Akeem Ellis (6'6''-G-90, college: Coppin St.) for a lay-up, plus the foul - providing the defining moment down the stretch. The ensuing made free throw, errant Hurricanes' shot and careless foul by Mike Poole on the other end sealed the game - snapping PEI's (10-14) five-game losing streak. Holding an eight point halftime lead (58-50), the Storm almost looked ready to collapse once again against the Atlantic-leading squad. With 7:36 to go in the third, the Hurricanes trailed 68-64 - but that would be the closest they would get to sniffing the lead. PEI answered emphatically with a 17-6 run over the next four-and-a-half minutes with Ellis' (21 points) chippy play against Billy White and long distance shooting being the catalyst. The Storm put up 36 third quarter points and held a 94-78 cushion heading to the final segment. With the previous five match-ups having being decided by a measly 6.6 points-difference, Sunday's game took on a different narrative early on. Led by Thomas' and Jahii Carson (5'10''-PG-92, college: Arizona St.)'s (20 points, eight rebounds, five assists) electric play guard play, the Storm took it straight to the collective chests of the Hurricanes from the get go by marching out to a 33-23 lead after the first, including a sizzling 68.42 per cent shooting effort from the floor. Thomas connected on a pair of early threes - in a sign of what was to come - while the home team's defence orchestrated 11 Hurricane turnovers before the half. Tyrone Watson (6'5''-F-90, college: N.Mexico St.) did not dress for Halifax. The rubber match - and final game in the season series - goes Wednesday at the Scotiabank Centre.
