DC 1, Central Maryland 0
By Neal Rozendaal
Washington, DC – The D.C. Divas clinched their 11th division championship and their 11th playoff appearance – both all-time records in women’s football – by accepting a forfeit victory over the Central Maryland Seahawks Saturday. The Divas have also all but assured themselves of a first round bye in the WFA playoffs and an opportunity to open the postseason at home in three weeks.
The forfeit victory over the Central Maryland Seahawks (0-5) is the 97th victory in the history of the D.C. Divas franchise, but only the second by forfeit. In 2010, the Philadelphia Firebirds forfeited a game to the Divas due to a league-mandated reduction of their schedule.
The D.C. Divas (4-2) have now won 11 division championships in the last 12 years, breaking a tie they held with the Sacramento Sirens for the most division titles in women’s football history. The division championship also assures the Divas of an automatic bid to the WFA playoffs. The Divas’ 11th postseason appearance will tie the mark for most playoff appearances by a women’s football franchise, set by the Sirens in 2013.
After an 0-2 start, the Divas have now won four straight contests, including three by shutout and one by forfeit. The D.C. defense has not allowed a touchdown since playing the Chicago Force on April 19.
The Divas will finish their regular season at home against their archrivals, the Boston Militia, on June 7. The Militia will enter the game undefeated and sporting the #1 ranking in women’s football, while the Divas are currently ranked #4 in the sport. D.C. hopes to avenge a 36-32 road loss they sustained at Boston to open the 2014 season.
Get your tickets today for the D.C. Divas’ regular season finale on Saturday, June 7, against their archrivals, the top-ranked Boston Militia. Kickoff for next Saturday’s game is at 6 PM at Prince George’s Sports Complex in Landover.
