The Soul are headed back to the ArenaBowl. Even better, they’ll get a chance at redemption against the team that topped them in last year’s title game: defending champion Arizona.
Philadelphia advanced to their second straight ArenaBowl Saturday night after beating Jacksonville, 75-59. The Soul will face the Rattlers this Saturday in Orlando.
“I am very proud of this entire team,” said coach Clint Dolezel. “They came to play in all phases of the game and we are proud to bring back-to-back American Conference Championships back to Philadelphia.”
Dan Raudabaugh led the offense by connecting on 18-of-27 passes for 220 yards and eight touchdowns. Ryan McDaniel led all Soul receivers with seven receptions for 88 yards and two scores, while Tiger Jones had six catches for 68 yards and two touchdowns.
