Pittsburgh, PA – In a game several observers called the greatest women’s football game they had ever seen, the Pittsburgh Passion won a thrilling 38-34 victory over the visiting D.C. Divas. The action-packed battle was broadcast on tape delay on Fox Sports Net Pittsburgh on Thursday, May 8 at 7:30 PM.

The Divas’ first play of the game resulted in a 54-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Allyson Hamlin. Hamlin threw another spectacular touchdown pass with less than three minutes left in the game to pull the Divas (1-2) to within 38-34.

The Divas’ defense held the Passion on four downs and gave the offense one more opportunity to pull out a victory. With just under a minute to play, Hamlin took a hit and her attempted pass was intercepted to end the game.

The win for the Passion (3-0) was their first against the Divas in franchise history. The two regular season losses for the Divas are the most since the 2002 season, when the Divas finished 6-3.

The Divas have a bye week on May 10 before traveling to Central Pennsylvania on May 17 for a division match-up with the Central PA Vipers.
