Predators fall to Philadelphia Soul, 69-56

Thursday April 10, 2014

ORLANDO, FL – The Orlando Predators dropped a 69-56 decision to the reigning American Conference champion Philadelphia Soul on Thursday evening at CFE Arena. Orlando is now 3-2 on the season, while Philadelphia earned its first victory of 2014 for a 1-3 overall record.

The two teams traded score through much of the game, as Orlando and Philadelphia each put 14 points on the board in the first, third, and fourth quarters. However, a lop-sided second period left the Predators in a 41-28 hole at the midway point. Philadelphia outscored Orlando 27-14 in the second quarter, and the Predators were never able to overcome the deficit.

Predators quarterback Jason Boltus threw for 348 yards and eight touchdowns in the contest, but the effort fell short as the Soul offense scored on 10 possessions. Orlando WR Greg Carr led all receivers on the evening, as he totaled 154 yards and four touchdowns on seven receptions. WR Khalil Paden hauled in three score of his own, posting 90 yards on six catches.

The Orlando Predators return to CFE Arena in Week 6 to take on the Tampa Bay Storm on Saturday, April 19th in the second edition of the 2014 “War on I-4.” Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. EST. Tickets are available for purchase by calling 407-648-4444!
