Boston Renegades Silence N.Y. Sharks 21-0

May 12, 2018

BROOKLYN — May 12, 2018 — Running back Angelica Pascual #1 amassed 116 rushing yards and Boston’s defense dominated as the Renegades shut out the New York Sharks 21-0, in a game called in the third quarter due to lightning.

Veteran cornerback Briannah Gallo #24 intercepted Sharks quarterback Karen Mulligan to end the New York’s first drive. Rookie linebacker Christina Riggieri #89 later collected her first career interception and third-year defensive end Crissy Gonzalez McAllister #60 made her first career fumble recovery. The Renegades also made an impressive goal-line stand to sink New York’s only scoring threat of the game, engulfing the Sharks on six consecutive plays inside the 3-yard line. Combining for two sacks and 6 tackles-for-losses, Boston held the Sharks to -7 rushing yards for the night.

The Sharks’ turnovers and inability to move the ball on the ground gave a strong advantage to Boston’s offense, which outsnapped their opponents 61-35. On the first scoring drive of the night, mid way through the first quarter, Angelica Pascual ran with authority between the tackles, often slashing her way past defenders. She accounted for 43 yards on the drive, and capped with a 2-yard touchdown plunge.

In the second period, quarterback Allison Cahill #7 accounted for two touchdowns, first connecting with tight end Stephanie Pascual #3 for a 26-yard scoring strike, and then scrambling ten yards to cross the stripe just before halftime. Kicker Brooke Goodman #97 was perfect on extra point kicks.

In the third quarter, the Renegades put together another long drive and were threatening to score again when the officials paused for a lightning delay. The game was subsequently called due to safety concerns. The game is official, a 21-0 victory for the Renegades.

Boston (4-1) next faces the D.C. Divas (2-2) at Marvin F. Wilson Stadium at Prince George’s Athletic Complex in Landover, Md. The Renegades’ next home game will be June 2 against the Baltimore Nighthawks.
