The Soul visited Pittsburgh on Saturday, ripped off the game's first 28 points and made some team history en route to a 59-21 shellacking of the Power.

The 21 points allowed by the Soul ties the franchise record for fewest given up in a game.

“I was pleased with how we came out and played from the start,” Soul head coach Clint Dolezel said. “This is the time of year when you have to get on a roll and start stringing wins together. This is an important divisional win for us and something that we will look to continue to build on.”

The win gives the Soul (7-5) a comfortable four-game lead in the East Division.

The Soul's aerial attack was led by the quartet of Tiger Jones, Andre Thurman, Ryan McDaniel and Derrick Ross.

Jones reeled in nine passes for 118 yards and two touchdowns. Andre Thurman followed suit with seven catches and a touchdown, while McDaniel finished with 60 receiving yards and two touchdown receptions. Ross also chipped in a pair of touchdown catches.

Quarterback Dan Raudabaugh put up seven touchdowns without throwing an interception.

On the other side of the ball, Rayshaun Kizer anchored the Soul defense with 5 1/2 total tackles and two interceptions.

David Richardson and James Romain each recorded an interception, as well.

The Soul will now return home for Military Appreciation Night when the Iowa Barnstormers make a trip to the Wells Fargo Center on June 22.
