Posted: May 28, 2012

CLEVELAND - Dan Raudabaugh fired six touchdown passes, including three to Tiger Jones, as the Soul rallied to beat the Cleveland Gladiators, 55-33, in an Arena Football League game at Quicken Loans Arena on Sunday night.

The Soul (8-3) used a 20-0 run in the third quarter to pull away and take control of the East Division. Cleveland fell to 6-4.

"This was a big comeback game for us," said Soul head coach Doug Plank. "All facets of the game - offense, defense, and special teams - we improved on from the previous week. I am pleased that we stayed focused and stuck to our game plan when it could have been easy not to."

Raudabaugh hit 20 of 34 passes for 157 yards, six TDs, and two interceptions.

Donovan Morgan caught nine passes for 84 yards and two TDs. Jones had seven receptions for 58 yards and three scores. Zipp Duncan had three receptions for 8 yards, and Jeff Hughley added a 7-yard touchdown.

Bryan Robinson blocked a kick and had a sack. Newly acquired LaRico Stevenson recovered a fumble.
