The Pittsburgh Passion women's football team improved to 4-0 with a 59-7 blowout victory over the Detroit Dark Angels on Saturday at West Allegheny's DiMichela Stadium in Imperial.

The win capped a three-game homestand which also included wins over the Boston Renegades (44-41) and D.C. Divas (32-27).

Passion quarterback Lisa Horton threw for 101 yards and two touchdowns and added a rushing score. Angela Baker caught both TDs from Horton and ended with 80 receiving yards.

Kia Foster ran for 80 yards and a touchdown, while Gabrielle O'Neal had 88 yards and two TD runs.

The Passion led 34-0 at halftime as the defense was dominant.

In addition to keeping Detroit's running game in check, Baker, Rebecca Ehrgood and Tenisha Spencer stopped Dark Angel drives with interceptions.

The Passion hit the road Saturday for the first of three straight road games and will take on the Columbus Comets. Game time is set for 7 p.m.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
