COLUMN: Voodoo Train Derails in Tampa Bay

Published

on

The New Orleans Voodoo play their games at the Smoothie King Center, located right next door to New Orleans Union Station. The reason I state that is because on Friday night, the offense for the Voodoo was like a train that derailed off the track. The Voodoo were unable to weather the storm from Tampa Bay and embarrassed inside of the Amalie Arena 42-13 on Friday night. The 13 points ties a franchise low for points in a game for the Voodoo, who have struggled on offense a lot in the last few years.

New Orleans were in the game early on, taking a 10-7 into the second quarter and were hoping to get revert to the team that upset the Sharks in week 1, but they could not overcome costly turnovers and mistakes. Adam Kennedy himself had a rough night, getting banged around all game and threw 2 interceptions. New Orleans trailed 14-13 at the half and were in perfect position to steal the game, but got outscored 28-0 in the second half. On consecutive plays from scrimmage with a fumbled kickoff in between, the Storm converted touchdowns and put the game away.

The Voodoo have now lost three in a row after a surprising 51-50 win over the Jacksonville Sharks, who are now 0-4. Next up for the Voodoo: home against the Philadelphia Soul on Sunday.
