NEW ORLEANS (KDKA) — The Pittsburgh Power improved their road record to 2-0, beating the New Orleans VooDoo, 56-49 on Thursday night.

The game got off to a slow start as both teams had problems converting in the red zone.

Pittsburgh missed a field goal at the end of their first offensive possession and the VooDoo ended up taking a 14-0 lead.

But a kick return by Jerome Mathis led to a scoring drive for the Power. They eventually tied it 14-14 by half time.

Anthony Morrelli, the third quarterback for the Power, has thrown 12 touchdown passes in two games and came through once again.

In the second half, Lonnell DeWalt made a dramatic two-handed diving catch giving Pittsburgh a 21-14 lead early in the third quarter.

The Power managed to keep the VooDoo at bay to secure the win.

The Power will try to improve their 3-3 record when they take on the Georgia Force, Saturday, April 30 on the road.
