Clarksville Fox to play for IWFL Tier II Championship

 

On July 26, 2008 the two best Tier II teams in the sport of women’s football will face off for the 2008 title.

The inaugural Tier II championship game is unique in several ways. Not only is this the first year this title will be awarded but it also the first year one of the contenders is not from the United States, making this the first ever international women’s tackle football championship game!

The Montreal Blitz (Le Blitz de Montreal) defeated the Carolina Phoenix on Saturday June 28 to advance to the
Championship game. The Blitz, in existence since 2002, has been a constant force in women’s football since
the team began. Every year building closer to thesuccess they now are realizing. As the first Canadian team to compete for a women’s tackle football championship, the Blitz are leading the way in their country for women and girls that aspire to play this great sport.

On the other side of the ball we have the quintessential all American small town team, the Clarksville Fox. The Fox, founded in 2007 have enjoyed strong fan support from their community and created success on the gridiron in record time. Defeating the New England Intensity on June 28, they became the youngest team in league history to earn a trip to an IWFL Championship.

“Both teams represent the tenacity and heart universal in every Tier II organization. As we approach this historic Tier II championship game we can all remember our sports roots and celebrate its future in these two teams. They play despite small rosters and small budgets, sometimes seemingly against all odds. They
play because they couldn’t imagine not playing. This is the common thread in all IWFL players. They never give up and never allow anyone to deny them their dream. This is who we are. This is the spirit the IWFL was founded on,” said IWFL Chief Executive Officer, Laurie Frederick.
