Largo, MD – Two years ago, the Philadelphia Phoenix ended the D.C. Divas’ 2003 playoff run with a 36-32 win in one of the best games in league history. The Divas won a measure of payback Saturday by blanking Philadelphia, 37-0.

The Divas (6-0) once again dominated defensively, pitching their fifth shutout in six games this season. A fumble recovery by Mozette Timmons led to the Divas’ first touchdown of the game. Monica Livingston broke into the end zone with a four-yard run to make the score 6-0.

Then, on the Divas’ second possession, offensive MVP LaShawn Foust continued her hard charging efforts with the first of her two touchdowns of the night. Her 11-yard run through a huge hole made it 12-0. Foust also converted the two-point conversion for a 14-0 lead.

The Phoenix (3-3) had no answer for the Divas’ powerful offensive charges. Quarterback Allyson Hamlin continued her steady leadership, connecting with Nikki Williams for a 60-yard touchdown for the Divas’ third touchdown of the game. Foust scored her second touchdown on a six-yard run to make it 28-0 at halftime.

Subrena Rivers added a safety to make the score 30-0, and the Divas’ defense – particularly Rebecca Glasgow, who was named the team’s defensive MVP – played a dominating game. Offensively, the Divas rushed for four touchdowns behind a veteran, rapidly-improving offensive line. Donna Wilkinson plunged in for a one-yard touchdown late in the game to make it 36-0. Stacy Palmer added the extra point for the final score of 37-0.

The Divas are now 6-0 and tied for first place in the Northern Conference playoff chase. They will host the Cincinnati Sizzle and their owner, former NFL great Ickey Woods, on June 11 in the Divas’ final regular season home game.
