Wilco Louw then fought his way over from close range to extend Stormers’ lead, with the successful conversion making it 15-0 just before the half-hour mark.
Crucially, though, Stormers were the next to touch down, Raymond Rhule collecting Craig Barry’s grubber kick to stretch his team’s lead to nine points.
While Reds winger Filipo Daugunu scored a stunning solo try in the 80th minute to set up a frantic finish, Stormers stood firm to move clear of the Sharks in second place in the South African conference.
