Voodoo opens season with overtime win vs Orlando

voodooThe New Orleans Voodoo got the season off to the right start. And, a thrilling one it was.

Eddie Moten intercepted a Kyle Rowley pass in the endzone in overtime as New Orleans beat Orlando, 51-45 in the season opener  for both teams Sunday at New Orleans Arena.

Voodoo head coach Pat O’Hara, fired by Orlando after the 2011 season, improved to 3-0  against his former team.

The Voodoo took the lead on the first possession in overtime on a 17 yard touchdown pass from Kurt Rocco to Courtney Smith. But, the extra point was missed.

That set up the dramatic finish, with Moten jumping in front of an Orlando receiver to intercept Rowley in the endzone.

Rowley had tossed a touchdown  pass to Jason Geathers with three second remaining in regulation to tie the score at 45.

Rocco was 18 of 40 passing for 220 yards and three touchdowns.
