TAMPA - The Tampa Bay Storm opened the 2003 Arena Football season by dismantling the Carolina Cobras 60-20 Friday night behind six touchdown passes by John Kaleo.

Kaleo, returning from a knee injury that sidelined him for most of last season, threw three of the scoring passes to Freddie Solomon. He also was out for most of 2002 with a torn Achilles' tendon.

Kaleo completed 16 of 27 passes for 214 yards. Solomon had 10 catches for 132 yards.

Chad DeGrenier threw two TDs passes for the Cobras, but was intercepted four times. Ben Bronson caught seven passes for 58 yards, and Nick Ward and Tramain Jones had TD receptions.
