While it is the first meeting between the teams, it is not the first time the two head coaches have faced each other. Mike Hohensee, the Thunder head coach dropped to 2-8 all-time against Soul head coach Clint Dolezel.

“Well it was the first time playing Portland but it was Coach Ho (Mike Hohensee). Same guy, I played against since I came in the league in 1994,” Clint Dolezel said. “We know each other, it’s more about that than it is the team.”

With the 6-0 start, they are now inching closer to the 8-0 start that the 2008 season had. In that magical season, they ended up winning the ArenaBowl Championship.

Both teams would trade touchdowns in the fourth. Soul kicker Tommy Frevert open the quarter with a 32-yard field goal.

Each team also traded touchdowns in the third. Shaun Kauleinamoku had a 27-yard touchdown reception, while John Martinez had an 11-yard reception for the Thunder as well.

“It was my number this week,” Kauleinamoku said. “If they’re going to double some guys, like they did Ryan McDaniel today, it comes down to the other two receivers to make big plays.

The Soul began to increase their lead in the second. They scored two touchdowns in the quarter. Marco Thomas had a 29-yard reception, before Kauleinamoku added a 27-yard reception.

The Thunder had a three-yard touchdown reception by Jared Perry.

Kauleinamoku also had a 32-yard touchdown in the first quarter. “Big Country” Adam Smith open the game with an 8-yard touchdown.

Following Smith’s touchdown, Portland answered quickly with a six-yard touchdown from Kyle Rowley to Perez Ashford.
