The Philadelphia Passion fell to the Los Angeles Temptation, 28-6, in Lingerie Bowl IX at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday.

L.A. was in control of the game from the opening drive, as game co-MVP Amber Reed scored the first of her two touchdowns to put the Temptation up 8-0.

Philadelphia got to Los Angeles' two-yard line on its opening drive, but was stopped and turned the ball over on downs.

The Temptation extended its lead to 14-0 after that, as the game's other co-MVP, Ashley Salerno, threw a two-yard touchdown pass to Audrey Latsko.

The Passion finally got on the scoreboard in the second half, scoring on the very first play after intermission. Christy Bell and Whiney Paronish combined on a 43-yard touchdown play that cut Los Angeles' lead to 14-6.

But that was as close as Philadelphia got. The Temptation responded with a 24-yard touchdown reception by Danielle Harvey, making the score 21-6. Later in the game, Salerno and Reed connected on a 10-yard touchdown play that extended L.A.'s lead to 28-6 and capped off the scoring.

It was Los Angeles' third consecutive Lingerie Football League championship, and the second straight loss in the title game for the Passion.
