Dallas Top Dogs

The Dallas Magpies continued their strong start to the season defeating the Denver Bulldogs and the Austin crows comfortably on June 2nd in Allen, TX.

In what was expected to be the biggest game in club history, the pies went into the first game confident but wary of the Bulldogs winning history and on-field strength and experience.  Perfect conditions for football on a calm Saturday morning made for a great contest and from the very first bounce it was a fierce contest.

Houston Lonestars New Kit Proves Worthy

The storms stayed away which meant perfect conditions for footy and Clark Park was in excellent condition.  The Lonestars got off to a great start kicking into the wind and played strong  contested footy all around the ground. The match was close all day and after taking a 3 goal lead
