The New Orleans Voodoo once again fought hard against a superior team, but once again they fell flat against the Philadelphia Soul losing 62-41 on Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia.
New Orleans (now 2-9 and on a 5 game losing streak) was actually competitive in this one for the first half, taking the now 10-1 Philadelphia Soul to the limit in the first half and had the game tied at 27-27 at halftime. But in the second half, it was all Philadelphia.
The Soul started off the third quarter with a five-yard touchdown pass from Raudabaugh to McDaniel that put the Soul in the lead 34-27. Romain intercepted a pass from Kennedy, and the Soul took the ball. With a little over three minutes left in the quarter, Raudabaugh connected with Kauleinamoku for a 10-yard touchdown. The Soul was in the lead at the end of the third quarter 41-27.
The VooDoo came back within the first minute of the fourth quarter with a 35-yard touchdown pass from Kennedy to McClain. The Soul pushed back right away when Raudabaugh connected with Thomas for a 17-yard touchdown. With 11:41 left in the game, the Soul was in the lead 48-34. McClain responds with a one-yard rush for a VooDoo touchdown. With a little over five minutes left in the game, the Soul took control with another pass from Raudabaugh to Thomas for a 13-yard touchdown, which increased their lead 55-41. With one minute left, Romain made his second interception of the game. Raudabaugh made a 45-yard pass to Kauleinamoku for another touchdown that made the final score 62-41.
New Orleans falls to 2-9 on the season and will host the Cleveland Gladiators on Friday.
