It was typical cool playoff weather on Sunday in Moosomin as the hometown Generals hosted the Yorkton Lady Gridders in the first ever title game of the Prairie Girls Football League.
The Generals were able to use home-field as an advantage as they held on for a 26-18 win over the Lady Gridders to capture the league title, in the league's first year of existence.
" We are pumped, it was a great game as we managed to get up early, but Yorkton's a great team and we were able to hold own defensively and fight through the emotions and pull out the win", said Generals Coach Jason Schenn.
The PGFL, which also includes teams in Melville, Estevan and Regina was formed to provide Grade 7-12 females the chance to play and develop their skills in the game of tackle football in a structured league.
Meanwhile in the 3rd place game of the PGFL that also took place on Sunday, it was the Regina Victoria's beating the Melville Vipers 26-0.
Schenn adds he's ecstatic just how much that female tackle football has grown in the province.
"Only just a few short years ago we had only a handful of girls that were playing tackle football in the province and now, with five girls teams now in the province and, and probably about 130 girls playing Grade 7-12 football, it's phenomenal to see you."
The first ever National U18 Female Championship will take place on July 24th to Aug. 1st, 2022 in Regina.
