PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – There are just three games left in the regular season for the Philadelphia Soul, starting with their home finale on Friday night against the Utah Blaze.
Philadelphia has already clinched the East Division title and they are tied for the best record in the American Conference at 10-5. Not bad for a team that in mid-May was sitting at 3-4. A big reason for this surge down the stretch has been defense, especially over the last month. In their last four games, Philadelphia has allowed 30 points or fewer three times, an incredible stat in the high-octane Arena Football League.
“Our defense is playing at a really high level right now,” Soul head coach Clint Dolezel tells KYW Newsradio. “Our secondary, even though we’ve had an injury or two there, they’re still playing well, they’re making the quarterback hold the ball, the pass rush is getting there. They’re really in sync right now and hopefully we can keep carrying that on.”
