MANITOBA FEARLESS TAKE ROAD TRIP TO ALBERTA

The Manitoba Fearless travelled to Edmonton, this past July to participate in an all female tackle football tournament. The Manitoba team consisted of 31 women and six coaches.
The Fearless beat Edmonton 13 – 6 in game one and Calgary 27 – 0 in game 2 before succumbing to an Alberta all star team 8 – 7.
This tournament was a first of its kind in Western Canada and there are plans to hold a similar tournament next year with more teams as female tackle football continues to grow. For more information concerning the Manitoba Fearless contact Tannis Wilson at tannisw@mts.net.
