USAFL Top 20 Poll VII: Austin Soars to Top Spot

Bombers fly high.  But now, the Crows are flying higher.

Last weekend’s Stumpdown Throwdown, despite not involving the Austin club, is what finally catapulted the 2013 premiers into the top spot in the USAFL Top 20 Poll.  The Crows can thank the Golden Gate Roos and the hometown Portland Steelheads, as they knocked off the Orange County Bombers on the way.  The Steelheads were rewarded with their first appearance in the poll, while the Roos got rewarded with… well… staying in the 9th position for another round of voting.

Revos Cling to 9th Parallel Cup Win in Vanica's Swan Song

LAUDERHILL, Florida -- Andy Vanica is used to being a champion.

He has been the backbone of the Denver Bulldogs for just about the entire duration of that club’s long and storied history.  He also has been a part of several international triumphs with the USA Revolution.

Canadians Storm Home over Freedom to win Parallel Cup

LAUDERHILL, Florida -- Lightning.  It can come in a bottle, it never strikes twice, and it sometimes delays the inevitable.

It is also quick, unpredictable, and highly dangerous.  As the USA Freedom and Canada Northern Lights found out, it can be your best friend or your worst enemy.  And just as fast as the Americans sprinted out to a big first quarter lead, their counterparts from up north struck back early and often, then were miserly about letting the Americans get any sniff of a victory.

Devos Win, Liberty Falls on Parallel Cup Opening Night

LAUDERHILL, Florida – The next wave of American footy nationals took to the field on Friday night under the lights at Central Broward Regional Park, and for eighty minutes at a time, a total of forty-eight men and women attempted to show that they had what it takes to play at the international level.

Sunglasses At Night - Pregaming the 49th Parallel Cup Men

It is a long and winding road between now and the year 2017.

Three long years will simply ferment the simmering feelings of two talented footballing nations who feel that their trips to Melbourne for the International Cup last summer would be largely unfulfilled.  The USA finished 8th, their worst IC finish in history.  Canada finished fifth, their best ever result, but were on the wrong side of the percentage formula and missed out on a chance to play in the semi-finals.
