The Prodigy (3-0) took a long trip through the mountains of West Virginia for a rematch against the Wildfire (1-2). West Virginia promised things would be different from their 67-0 drubbing from the start of the season.
To start the game the Prodigy defense held the Wildfire and they were forced to turn over the ball on downs. The Washington offense, led by running back Cheri "Little Mimi" Gantt scored on their first play from scrimmage, a 29 yard touchdown.
Coming off a bye week, the Prodigy (2-0) was eager to get back to what they do best... win. An undersized Fayetteville (0-1) came to Washington with hopes of spoiling that goal but to no avail.
The Prodigy defense picked up where they left off, keeping the opposing team from gaining a first down. The Fierce attempted to move the chains on 4th down of the opening series but Safety Keshia Cousar shutdown the quarterback for a 12 yard loss.
The Washington Prodigy (1-0) wanted to make a statement to the rest of theUSWFL coming into last Saturday’s home opener against West Virginia (0-1) and boy did they ever, beating the Wildfire 67-0.
The Prodigy defense took the field first and they shut West Virginia down. The Wildfire barely gained a yard from scrimmage and fumbled twice. It took the Prodigy offense a bit longer to get rolling but after the defense gave the offense a short field to work with, Fullback Crystal Boyd ran into the end zone with 1:20 remaining the first quarter.
