Renegades withstand late rally to defeat D.C. 37-32

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Boston Renegades defeated their rivals the D.C. Divas by a score of 37-32. Running back Angelica Pascual #1 rushed for two touchdowns and quarterback Allison Cahill #7 passed for two touchdowns as the Renegades rolled up five scores in the first half to jump out to 21-point lead. The Divas rallied in the second half to narrow the deficit to 5 points, but on the game’s final drive, Boston’s offensive line saved the day by enabling Renegades rushers to move the chains, grind down the clock, and seal the victory.
