Renegades soar against Nighthawks

June 8, 2019

BALTIMORE – The Boston Renegades defeated the Baltimore Nighthawks yesterday to advance to 7-0. Wide receiver Stephanie Pascual #3 caught two of quarterback Allison Cahill’s four touchdown passes, while running back Ruth Matta #22 again topped 100 yards, scoring two rushing touchdowns.

Running back Angelica Pascual #1 rushed for her 13th touchdown of the season on the opening drive. Boston extended their lead on an exciting play that saw linebacker Allie Genereux #52 pressure Nighthawks quarterback Sherri Anderson into a desperate attempt at an shovel pass which was intercepted by defensive end Penny Fagnani #62 and returned 42 yards into the end zone.

Allison Cahill #7 connected with Finnish transfer JJ Seiles #81 who has now caught receiving touchdowns in back-to-back games.

Baltimore, down by 21 points, leaned on running back Shaysha Fitzgerald who put together several rushes for 34 yards to advance her team downfield. Wide receiver Breonna Brewer then rushed the ball in on a reverse to put the Nighthawks on the scoreboard. The ensuing extra point attempt was blocked by Hillary Crook #75. The ball was recovered by Genereux who lateraled to Satoria Bell #4 who returned it to the end zone for a rarely witnessed defensive two point conversion. Bell would later score a receiving touchdown later in the game.

The Renegades would also score a touchdown on special teams, when Shantia Creech #5 returned a kickoff 57 yards to the end zone.

The Renegades next face the D.C. Divas in at Harry Della Russo Stadium in Revere on Saturday June 15. Before our regular season finale, we will be celebrating “Boston Women’s Football Alumni Appreciation Day.” Beginning at 3:30, festivities will include a tailgating party with beer garden, games, and prizes including a raffle. All are invited, and alumni of Boston’s women’s football teams are invited to RSVP.
