The Portland Fighting Fillies scored a 6-0 road win over the Portland Shockwave in a rivalry game Saturday at Hillsboro Stadium. The game was scoreless into the fourth quarter before the Fillies drove inside the 1-yard line. Two running plays to the left side were stuffed for no gain before QB Rebekah Chee called an audible and handed off to Holly Custis, who broke through a hole on the right side for the games only touchdown.
I looked for a crease and just dove through into the end zone, Custis said.
She finished with 100 yards on 20 carries, while backfield mate Latasha Mitchell added 47 yards on 12 carries.
The Fillies defense dominated the game with Anetra Torres picking off three passes, including one in the final minute that sealed the victory. The Fillies also forced four fumbles the biggest coming late in the game when the Shockwaves Simone Shepherd caught a long pass only to have the ball punched out by Fillies safety Cassie Dunsire, allowing Custis to pounce on the loose ball and end the scoring threat.
Jasmine Teters led the team with 12 tackles, including three behind the line of scrimmage, while Ashley Kondziela came up with two quarterback sacks.
The Fillies have a bye this week before returning to action Saturday, May 4, at home against the Everett Reign.
