The Baltimore Brigade remain the only team to defeat Philadelphia Soul in the past two years as they picked up their second win over the two-time defending arena bowl champions 31 to 21 on Friday night in Baltimore. The Brigade got off to a fast start forcing a turnover on Philadelphia’s first possession, and turning that into a touchdown on fourth down just a few plays later.
Baltimore carried over the momentum into the second half is the extended that lead to 28 to 14 into the fourth quarter. A field goal followed by a Rauabaugh interception, after which he came out of the game with an injury, sealed Baltimore’s win as they moved to 3-1. They also moved into a tie, with the Soul, atop the arena football league standings.
Baltimore’s defense shut down Philadelphia’s offense through most of this game. Joe Powell was making tackles left and right and Virgil Gray recorded the interception for Baltimore.
They held Philadelphia to just 21 points, tied for the second-lowest score for the Soul in a game in franchise history.
Both teams will take a week off during the universal bye. Philadelphia will host the Albany Empire on May 19 while the Brigade will travel to take on the Washington Valor at the Capital One Arena for the first time this season.
