Divas, Defense Dominate Another IWFL Foe

From http://www.dcdivas.com/
DIVAS REMAIN UNBEATEN WITH 21-7 WIN OVER NEW YORK
The D.C. Divas expect a tough football game every time they go to Brooklyn to face the Sharks who are in their 10th season of play. After a scoreless first half the Divas marched the ball 64 yards on the ground to begin the second half and grind out a 6-0 lead. Claudia Hogan’s 1 yard blast in her first carry of the game gave the Divas the lead.
The offensive line battled one of the better defensive lines in the league and opened holes throughout the second half. RB Okiima Pickett brought her career best effort of 117 yards on 22 carries. The Divas running backs ran for a season high 223 yards on the day. LB Alissa Imbragulio recovered a fumble that lead to the Divas first score of the 4th quarter. QB Allyson Hamlin’s 1 yard keeper made it 12-0 and RB Tiffany “Spaceghost” Matthews added the two point run for a 14-0 advantage. Hamlin then added an 8 yard scoring strike to WR Tara Kallal. Kathryn Hemlock added the extra point for a 21-0 lead that was insurmountable. The Sharks added the final touchdown with just less than 2 minutes to play.
In 4 games this season the defensive unit has only allowed 14 points. The Divas now hold a 3-1 series advantage since the teams began playing each other in 2007.
The Divas are now 4-0 on the season and host the Baltimore Nighthawks on Saturday May 23rd. Kickoff is at 7:00pm at the Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex and parking is Free in Fed Ex Field LOT B. Get your tickets today!
