PHILADELPHIA, PA – The Philadelphia Soul (5-4) defeated the Albany Empire (5-4) at the Times Union Center with a score of 75-74 in front of 9,534 fans in the final 0.4 seconds of the game. This nail-biter put the Soul in a tie with the Empire for second place in the Arena Football League.

Soul rookie WR Aaron Wascha totaled seven touchdowns and 208 yards, recording the first 200-yard receiving game since Quentin Sims’ 205 yards against Tampa Bay in April of 2017. Although the Empire maintained a steady lead for most of the game, the Soul fought hard in the fourth quarter to get the win they needed after falling to the Washington Valor at home last week.

The game began in usual Arena Football fashion as the Empire and Soul exchanged touchdowns early in the first quarter, scored by the top two wide receivers in the league: Empire WR Malachi Jones and Soul WR Darius Prince. However, Albany picked up the pace as WR Collin Taylor recovered a Soul onside kick, leading to a five-yard touchdown by WR Joe Hills, giving Albany a 14-7 lead. In the ensuing Soul drive after receptions by WR Aaron Wascha and Prince, the Soul managed to tie up the score at 14 with another touchdown by Prince to conclude the first quarter.
