Soul sends Shock back to Spokane with a loss

The Philadelphia Soul won their 7th straight game last night. And they haven’t lost since their last meeting with the Spokane Shock.

The Soul came into the game never defeating the Shock. The Shock was making the same cross country flight that Philadelphia made back in May.

But, now, many of the players can say they defeated the Shock. The Soul were able to defeat the Shock, 62-48, last night at the Wells Fargo Center.

With the win, the Soul were able to set a franchise-record with 14 regular season wins. In 2008, the team had 13 regular season wins.

That was not the only record set on the night. Larry Brackins set a franchise record with 70 touchdowns in a career, which was previously held by Sean Scott.

In addition, on the defensive side of the ball, Bryan Robinson broke the franchise record with 10 sacks in a season, which was previously held by Gabe Nyenhuis in 2008. Kent Richardson broke Eddie Moten‘s franchise record with 14 interceptions in a season.

Dan Raudabaugh, the record-setting quarterback, went 16 of 22 for 179 yards, including five touchdown passes. He also threw an interception in the game to Shock defender Charles Ealy.

It was also the first game for Raudabaugh and the Soul without Anthony “Tiger” Jones. He was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday.

Shock quarterback Kyle Rowley went 29 of 48 for 325 yards, including seven interceptions. He had four interceptions, with two picks to Richarson, and one each to Dusty Bear and LaRico Stevenson.

Raudabaugh had three receivers account for the five touchdowns. He threw two touchdowns to Derrick Ross, who had a 108 overall yards, including 81 rushing yards, and five overall touchdowns.

Donovan Morgan had five receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown. Brackins had four receptions for 46 yards and two touchdowns.

Morgan left the game in the fourth quarter with an apparent ankle injury. Ross told the media after the game that Morgan would be back for the July 22nd game.

Jeffrey Solomon had two touchdowns on four receptions for 36 yards. Rod Harper had nine receptions for a 107 yards and a touchdown.

With nearly three and a half minutes to go, the Soul and the Shock both scored. After not scoring for nearly a quarter, Rowley connected with Tennell for a 9-yard touchdown.

With nearly two minutes left, Ross scored into the end zone on a 2-yard run.
