Published DateSTINGERS LRFFL WOMEN'S LEAGUE SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS
The Stingers of the Lakes Region Flag Football League's have claimed their second consecutive Women's League Super Bowl Championship.
Last Friday night, the league held its Playoff and Super Bowl games.
The women-only version of our exciting NFLFlag youth league Fall & Spring program (boys & girls ages 4-17), the LRFFL's women's league had a total of six teams participating in its second spring season.
Under threatening skies, our women's teams participated in some very intense and competitive flag football games that were played on the Inter-Lakes High School turf field. The top 4 teams made the playoffs, with the #1 Seed Beavers taking on the #4 Seed Busters, and the #2 Seed Stingers battling the #3 Seed Frog Rock team to see which two teams would advance to the Super Bowl game.
The rain managed to hold off until the first round games were just about complete, but began to come down steadily in-between the break between the Playoffs and Super Bowl game. Fortunately the lightning was holding off, although rumbles of thunder could be heard.
The #1 Seed Beavers prevailed over the #4 Busters 32-12, and the #2 Stingers held off #3 Frog Rock 20-6, setting up a Super Bowl match-up between the #1 Beavers and the #2 Stingers.
As the rain increased in intensity and the rumbles of thunder increased, the Stingers managed to score first and added a 1-point conversion. The Beavers marched down the field on their next possession and scored on a TD pass to make the score 7-6. On the ensuing 1-point conversion pass attempt to tie the score, the Beavers completed the pass but the offense was offsides, negating the extra point and leaving the score standing at 7-6.
In what was shaping up to be a scrappy melee, each team managed to get two more possessions in without reaching the end zone before the skies really opened up and began to "light up!" With two minutes left in the first half, play was halted for 15 minutes in the hope the lightning would clear out and the game could resume. But in the end the game was called without another down being played.
The LRFFL Women's League will be back next spring for its third season. Follow the Lakes Region Flag Football League all year round: lrffl.com, and like us on Facebook: lakesregionflagfootball.
