The Soul’s three-game winning streak came to end Saturday at the hands of the cross-state rival Pittsburgh Power, 65-57, at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.
The loss for the Soul (3-4) not only handed the team its first loss in about a month, but it also dropped the squad into last place in the East Division. The win for the Power (4-3) moved them into a tie for second place in the division.
The Soul played a mostly efficient game, but ran into all sorts of trouble during the second quarter when the offense coughed up a fumble and was stopped on downs in back-to-back possessions. The Power took advantage of the extra possessions by scoring touchdowns.
The porous start to the second quarter led to the Soul trailing the Power at halftime, 38-21. Despite out-scoring the Power 36-27 in the second half, the deficit proved to be large.
