Roanoke, VA – Revenge is a dish best served cold. Unfortunately for the Roanoke Revenge, it was 70 degrees at kickoff and they proceeded to melt away in a 70-0 shellacking at the hands of the undefeated D.C. Divas.

The Divas (5-0) equaled their second-highest point total in team history for the second time this year. Both games against the Revenge have ended in 70-0 shutouts, and the Divas have outscored their opponents this season by a margin of 246-14.

The Divas’ running game racked up an impressive performance against Roanoke with 305 yards on the ground. Donna Wilkinson scored three touchdowns and was one of six D.C. Divas to score. Wilkinson’s 84 yards were supplemented with strong performances by Monica Livingston, LaShawn Foust, Adrienne Lewis, and Yolanda Thomas. Divas wide receivers T.Q. Billups and Tara Kallal also had touchdowns through the air. The offensive MVP of the game was lineman Patrice Bowman.

Defensively, the Revenge (1-4) weren’t able to gain any offensive momentum and finished the game with only 65 total yards. The D.C. defense recorded their fourth shutout of the year. Defensive MVP T.K. Washington earned her first MVP award in over a year and a half of play with seven tackles and two sacks. “I’ve been wanting to do this for so long.
