VooDoo take on Orlando

Published 12:00 am Monday, March 14, 2005

When the New Orleans VooDoo faces off against the Orlando Predators on Sunday, March 13 at the New Orleans Arena, fans can expect an exciting, interactive experience leading up to the game through its conclusion.

The 5-1 VooDoo will be facing the 4-2 Predators in an important Southern Division matchup in a hotly-contested division where four of the five teams have only one or two losses. Following five straight victories, including an impressive 53-51 win over the Dallas Desperados on the road last Saturday, the VooDoo currently stand in a first place tie in the Southern Division with the Georgia Force. In a show of respect around the league, they have held the first place ranking in the leagues “Power Poll” and the Arena Football Writers Association “Top 8” poll for the past three weeks.

In addition to the challenge that Orlando poses to New Orleans, fans will also be able to enjoy the excitement of VooDoo football that has resulted in two of the team’s first three home games this season not being decided until the final play of the game; a 62-61 victory over the San Jose SaberCats on Sunday, February 13 and a 48-42 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Storm on Friday, February 25.

Captain Phillip Lundy will take part in the coin toss.

“We are honored to have these young men and women who so bravely represented our country in attendance as our guest for this Sundays game,” said Saints and VooDoo Owner Tom Benson.
