Soul Tonight

Posted: March 22, 2007

Colorado at Soul

Records: Crush (2-1), Soul (2-0).

When: Tonight, 7 o'clock.

Where: Wachovia Center.

Line: Soul by 11. Over/under: 104.


Radio: WPEN (950-AM).

All-time series: Colorado has won all four meetings by an average of 14 points. The Crush won in Philadelphia last season, 48-38.

Crush key injuries: DB Tony Scott (hamstring) is out.

Soul key injuries: WR/LB Sean Scott is doubtful with a concussion. LB Raheem Orr (shoulder) is questionable.

Storyline: Can the Soul maintain the momentum generated by two impressive road wins to become 3-0 for the first time in franchise history? Philadelphia has won its last two home openers.

Crush player to watch: Speaking of streaks, wide receiver Damian Harrell has scored a touchdown in 68 consecutive games and his nine touchdown receptions are tied for third in the league.

Soul player to watch: Defensive back Eddie Moten continued his all-pro play by notching another interception last week. He has a pick in five consecutive games, obviously dating back to last season.

Up next: Philadelphia is at New York on April 1 in the first Eastern Divisional game of the year.

Homework with Soul: The Soul is offering homework assistance during its five Monday and Thursday home games. Students can get individual guidance from a qualified teacher at the Wachovia Center two hours prior to kickoff.

Hey, I know him: Colorado's quarterbacks' coach is Chris Boden, the former Villanova star. Boden coached in Nashville last season and set 24 passing records in his days on the Main Line (1996-99).
