The Soul were routed by the San Jose SaberCats, 70-33, at the SAP Center on Sunday night to fall to 0-2 on the season.

Quarterback Dan Raudabaugh threw three touchdown passes and Derrick Ross added a rushing score in the first half to keep the Soul in the game. The SaberCats (2-0) built a 35-27 lead by the end of the first half.

However, the Soul were embarrassed in the second half and were outscored, 35-6, after the break.

“We were beat in every phase of the game,” said Soul head coach Clint Dolezel.  “We will have the bye week to re-group and get healthy, but we are clearly not happy with the performance tonight.”

Raudabaugh was pulled in the fourth quarter and finished the game completing 11-of-27 passes for just 131 yards, three touchdowns and a interception that was returned for a touchdown.

Bryan Randall relieved Raudabaugh and completed 6-of-11 passes for 73 yards and a touchdown.

Ross, who earned Arena Football League's Russell Athletic Offensive Player of the Week in Week 1, was held to 34 rushing yards and a touchdown in the loss.

Wide receivers Ryan McDaniel (seven catches for 89 yards) and Tiger Jones (five catches and 63 yards) both caught two touchdown passes for the Soul.

The Soul have a bye week before traveling to face the Tampa Bay Storm on Friday, April 4 at 7:30 p.m.
