Nationals

Austin, Portland Double Up; Calgary, Rats Back on Top

It’s always great to hear an old favorite come on the radio.  Or iPod.  Or whatever it is you kids listen to these days.

It’s also nice to hear something new, though when it comes to music these days that can be sort of hit or miss.

But there were some old, sweet favorites playing at Nationals, at least in terms of the four clubs who emerged as Men’s Division Champions at the Premier Sports Campus in Lakewood Ranch, Florida.

Maidens, West Coast Combo Take Nationals Honors

For the second straight season, the USAFL Nationals had two women’s divisions contested.  Nearly 200 women again took to the ground, and put on another memorable carnival.

Most people will look at the records of the women’s division and note its posterity for the fact that the longest title streak of any division in the two-decade history of the tournament came to an end in heart stopping fashion. 

Others will see the combination of three new clubs and a USAFL original with familiar names at the top of Division 2, marking a resurgence of women’s footy on the west coast.

Four Seasons in a Day - Day 1 at Nationals

Four seasons in a day.  That’s what we had on Saturday in Lakewood Ranch; sun, clouds, rain, wind, humidity.

We also saw another slate of amazing footy matches, many of which were streamed online via USAFL.com.  As in last year, there is still a lot to play for across all six divisions, with virtually no dead rubbers and many teams still with a crack at Sunday afternoon glory.

2016 USAFL Nationals Preview - Women's Division

After an important growth year for women’s footy in the USA, 2016 once again was a showcase of just how strong the female football program is in the country.

It’s going to be hard to top last year’s 10th Anniversary Nationals, however.  Heading into the last set of Division 1 matches, four of the five clubs competition had a chance to be crowned premiers, and in the end the song remained the same.  Denver, despite being tripped up by Minnesota, continued to write their legendary story and hoist their sixth straight Nationals cup.
