Voodoo Rout Defending Champion Sabercats

Posted: April 6, 2008 in Voodoo

Behind their new starting quarterback Danny Wimprine, the Voodoo used their trademark defense and stuffed the San Jose Sabercats in the arena on Saturday 72-43. Wimprine now has 29 TD’s and 2 INT’s, both of those coming in last week’s game. The win takes the Voodoo to 5-1 on the season as they go to Dallas next week to take on the 6-0 Dallas Desperados. If the Voodoo can hand Dallas their first loss of the season, it will not only tie them with Dallas, who currently shares the conference lead with 6-0 Philadelphia, but will also establish them as the best team in the conference. Kick-off is at 6:00 pm cst. on April 12.
