Freedom Capture Third Place in Successful International Cup Debut

The Freedom have claimed third place in the inaugural women's International Cup after defeating Papua New Guinea Flame 4.3 (27) to 1.2 (8).  In a re-match of second round clash the Freedom experience again proved to be too much for the young Flame side.  The Freedom midfield controlled the game with gutsy performances by Eileen Geoghegan, Becky Kraft, Helen Spink and Jen Cravens.  Leading goal kicker Lindsey Kastanek added 2 more to her team leading total.

Game Day Preview: Freedom v Northwind

The Freedom will be looking for redemption in today's match vs. the Canadian Northwind.  Last year the Freedom lost both games to their rivals at the 49th Parallel Cup in Toronto by scores of 4.12 (26) to 2.4 (16) and 10.6 (64) to 6.7 (43).  This time the familiar foes will be playing for a shot to play for the inaugral women's International Cup title.

There are many of the same players from last year's game on both sides and the Freedom have been looking forward to the re-match since the draw was finalized last month.

Freedom Smother Flame

The Freedom continued their winning ways with a convincing win over the Papua New Guinea Flame on Thursday night at Blacktown by a score of 6.5 (41) to 1.0 (6).  Under the bright lights the Flame had trouble finding their way against the more experienced Freedom side.  With the win the Freedom are 2-0 and second on the ladder trailing only Ireland by percentage.

Game Day Preview: Freedom Set to Take on Papua New Guinea Flame

The Freedom do not have much time to enjoy their first victory in Women's International Cup history.  Their convincing win yesterday over the Australia side was a great confidence boost, but they will have to focus on the task at hand against a young, skillful Papua New Guinea Flame side.  The average age of the Flame is 18 years old and they will be looking to use their youthful exuberance and speed to their advantage.

Freedom Make History

Lindsey Kastanek kicked the first goal and the Freedom never looked back in their impressive International Cup debut victory over the Australian Indigenous Multicultural team.  Playing in rainy conditions the US women played an agressive style and displayed great teamwork to run out winners by the score of 10.12 (72) to 0.0 (0).

By: Denis Ryan

A couple of weeks ago I received a request from a Scott Bolitho of the Embassy of Australia. You see, Australia's Ambassador to the US, Kim Beazley, is the patron of the USAFL and he wanted to hold a reception in honor of the local Baltimore Washington Eagles players who were about to head down under and represent the US at the 2011 International Cup of Australian Football.
