The Utah Blaze lost to the host Philadelphia Soul 69-39 in an Arena Football League game Friday night, falling to 5-11 and extending their losing streak to four games.

The 11-5 Soul, now winners of their sixth straight, gained fewer net yards than the Blaze but were helped by Dan Raudabaugh going 16 for 23 with five touchdowns.

The Blaze switched from backup Jason Boltus to last year's MVP, Tommy Grady, for most of Friday's game. Grady went 23 of 40 for 232 yards and four touchdowns, two of which came at the hands of receiver Mario Urrutia.

Nine penalties hurt the Blaze, who were outscored 35-13 at halftime and never managed to catch up.

Chase Deadder and Shannon Tevaga had Utah's other touchdowns, while the defense's Mike Alston had one tackle and forced a fumble.
