Soul pummels Pittsburgh

Posted: June 25, 2012

Dan Raudabaugh threw seven touchdown passes and set the team's single-season record as the Soul beat Pittsburgh, 69-34, on Sunday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

Three of Raudabaugh's TD tosses went to Tiger Jones. Raudabaugh's third-quarter score to lineman Greg Ryan broke the franchise record of 90 set by Tony Graziani in 2005. It was the first catch of the season for Ryan, who was signed on June 13.

Raudabaugh has 94 touchdown passes and 16 interceptions.

Rayshaun Kizer had pair of interceptions to lead the defense. Fellow defensive back Kent Richardson, who leads the Arena League with 12 picks, left the game early in the second half with an injured finger.

The Soul (12-3) entered the game having already clinched homefield advantage throughout the American Conference playoffs. They got off to a sluggish start Sunday with turnovers in two of their first three possessions, but seized control by scoring on nine consecutive possessions for a fifth consecutive win.

Pittsburgh (3-11) has lost eight of its last nine, with its only victory coming via a Cleveland forfeit.

The Soul's next game is Friday, June 29 at Tampa Bay. The Soul then has two regular-season home games before their July 28 opening-round playoff contest.
