Soul start AFL season with win in Orlando

ORLANDO (March 29, 2015) - Ryan McDaniel's late touchdown reception lifted the Philadelphia Soul to a heart-stopping, 70-63, win over the Orlando Predators at the Amway Center in Orlando on Sunday night.

Down by a pint with just  36 seconds left, Aoul quarterback Dan Raudabaugh connected with McDaniel for the game-winner. An ensuing two-point conversion by Marco Thomas accounted for the final score.

McDaniel finished with 10 catches for 150 yards and three touchdowns and  Thomas added 14 catches for 154 yards and three touchdowns. Shaun Kauleinamoku had six receptions for 118 yards and two touchdowns.

Raudabaugh finished the night by completing 30-of-48 passes for 422 yards, eight touchdowns and no interceptions.

“That’s Arena Football, coming down to the wire on the last play of the game,” said Soul head coach, Clint Dolezel. “Coming back from injury and adversity is the key."

Kent Richardson led the Philadelphia defense with 6 1/2 total tackles and one tackle for loss while Dwayne Hollis had 3 1/2 total tackles.
