Arizona Rattlers Now 13-2 After Defeating Philadelphia, 55-54

The Rattlers haven't made their last few victories easy, but they have been victories nonetheless. After defeating San Jose 64-57 last weekend, Arizona traveled up to Philadelphia and defeated the Soul, 55-54 on Saturday night.

Quarterback Nick Davila threw for seven touchdowns, hitting WR Rod Windsor three times. Windsor picked up 131 yards in the air. Kerry Reed added 92 yards, while Jason Geathers was targeted for 55 yards.

The Soul employed a very aggressive running game, scoring six touchdowns on the ground and only two through the air.

Despite a 13-2 record, Arizona still doesn't have the league's best record -- that honor goes to the Jacksonville Sharks, who after losing their season opener to the Rattlers have rattled off 13 straight wins.

This loss was a huge blow to Philadelphia's playoff chances, and at 5-10 are now destined for a long offseason. Arizona, on the other hand, is in the driver's seat of the National Conference, holding a sizable lead over second place Chicago (9-4).
