Brother Wind Comes Blowing In - Day 1 at the USAFL Nationals

For the third consecutive carnival at Lakewood Ranch, Brother Wind was a significant player in most of the games on day one at the 2023 USAFL National Championships.

Thankfully, though, the rain that was forecast for Saturday never showed, proving once again that you should never trust a meteorologist. 

A few favorites returned to glory, and a few fell by the wayside. Men’s D3 went topsy turvy, while the Iron Maidens’ win streak fell; they can still make and win the Grand Final, though.

2023 USAFL Nationals - Women's Div 1 and 2 Preview

It was twenty years ago today, that the women began to play.

2023 Nationals - Men's Division 1 Preview
