US v Canada Results

EVENT: 49th Parallel Cup, US vs Canada Test

DATE: Saturday, Aug. 2, 2003

PLACE: South Park Fairgrounds, Library, Pa. (just south of Pittsburgh)


The Revolution, the U.S national Australian Football team, defeated the Canadian Northwind in the final minutes of a close, hard fought encounter.  The Revolution scored the first and last goals of the game, with the Northwind leading everywhere in between. Surprising the Revolution with their intensity, skill and teamwork, the Northwind came out hard at the beginning of the game and never let up.  At the final change, Revolution Coach, Scott Nicholas, implored his charges to make every ball a contest.  With the partisan crowd behind them, the Revolution kicked two goals in the final minutes of the game to snatch a 2 point victory from the Northwind.



This is the Revolutions fifth straight win over the Northwind, but was definitely the closest and most exciting game the two rivals have played.  Both teams went hard for the ball, and were evenly matched all over the field. The game was decided in the last few minutes, when Revolution Ruckman, Mike Waller, won the center ruck contests with two huge punches forward.  On both occasions, Revolution runners were able to pounce on the ball and score unanswered goals winning the game with only seconds left on the clock.


The second game of the afternoon, matched the CAFA Australians against the USAFL Australians.  Playing some of the best footy ever seen in the U.S., the Canadian Australians were far too good for the USAFLs imports.  It was an Australian football lesson that was appreciated by all who watched the game.  In all, it was a fantastic day of representative football, whetting everyones appetite for when the Revolution take on the Sydney Football

Leagues Belmain in New York in the last week of September.
