The Pittsburgh Passion women's football team upped its record to 3-0 with a 32-27 victory over the rival D.C. Divas on Saturday in a Women's Football Alliance game at West Allegheny's Joe P. DiMichela Stadium.

The Divas scored first and led 7-0 at the end of the first quarter before the Passion scored 26 straight points to take control.

Lisa Horton threw three touchdowns before halftime, one each to Sharon Vasquez, Angela Baker and Krystal Cozzo.

She added a 4-yard TD strike to Baker with 8:37 to go in the third quarter as the lead swelled to 26-7.

Horton's 19-yard touchdown pass to Vasquez late in the first half was the 200th of her career.

Pittsburgh wraps up a three-game homestand Saturday against the Detroit Dark Angels. Game time at DiMichela Stadium is set for 6:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the gate or at PittsburghPassion.com.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

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.
