Soul crush Rush for fifth straight win

After trailing in the first quarter, the Soul defense on Saturday dug in and allowed just two touchdowns through the final three quarters to dominate the Chicago Rush, 58-26, at Wells Fargo Center for their fifth straight win.

Rayshaun Kizer led the defense with two interceptions and seven tackles to help shut the door early on the Rush.

“Winning all three phases of the game has been the key to this run we’ve been on these past couple weeks,” Soul head coach Clint Dolezel said. “Our defense was outstanding tonight and our offense almost scored on every drive.  You can’t ask for much more than that from your team, especially when you play an opponent like Chicago.”

Once again, Tiger Jones handled things on the offensive side of the ball with three touchdowns and 186 yards receiving.

Carlos Martinez put the Soul ahead with a 23-yard field goal in a second quarter to give them a permanent lead. The half ended with the Soul up 31-19.

Larry Brackins added two touchdowns to the Soul tally, and fullback Derrick Ross powered his way to a one-yard rushing touchdown.

Quarterback Dan Raudabaugh had a solid night, completing 18 of 25 for 257 yards passing and five touchdowns.

But for Chicago quarterback Carson Coffman, it was a different story. He completed just 10 of his 17 pass attempts, threw an interception, and was sacked by Soul lineman Tyron Hurst.

Carlos Campbell helped finish off the Rush by recovering a fumble for a touchdown.

With the win, the Soul are now in a first-place tie with the Jacksonville Sharks.

The Soul will host the Utah Blaze on Friday, July 12.
