Despite an impressive effort by Marirose Roach on both sides of the ball, the Philadelphia Passion lost a heartbreaker in the Lingerie Bowl, 26-25, to the Los Angeles Temptation in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday.

Roach scored her fourth touchdown of the game with eight minutes left in the fourth quarter to give the Passion 25-19 lead, but Zipporah Chase's touchdown for the Temptation with 2:25 left proved to be the winning score.

A last-ditch Passion drive ended with a sack of quarterback Christy Bell on fourth down, as the Temptation captured their second consecutive LFL championship.
