Voodoo pick up second win of season on road

The New Orleans Voodoo (2-6) picked up their second win of the season on the road in Kansas City, scoring a season-high 59 points including 21 in the final quarter.

Led by QB Chris Wallace, who has been with the team for less than a month, the Voodoo took a lead when New Orleans native DB Jerron Wishom returned a tipped pass 54 yards for an interception and a 52-45 lead. 

Wallace finished 20/32 for 250 yards, four scores and an interception.  Leading receiver was former Louisiana Tech WR James Jordan, a Kenner, La. native, a veteran of the first run of the Voodoo franchise.  Jordan caught eight passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns, and was named the game's MVP. 

In the final seconds, Command QB JJ Raterink's pass went off the fingers of former Saints training camp WR Aaron Hosack in the end zone.  Former Florida Gator DB Matthew Jackson led the Voodoo defense with eight tackles, an assist and an interception.

After starting 0-4, the Voodoo have rebounded with two road wins in the past four weeks.  New Orleans is tied for last place with the Tampa Bay Storm in the South Division of the American Conference. 

The Voodoo will play host on the NFL Network against the Tulsa Talons on Friday night, May 13.
