As the inaugural season of LFL Canada draws to a close, the key element was excitement.
The inaugural season was not short of superstars. Every franchise had players (both American and Canadian) who were ready to emerge as possible building blocks for the future. Although the BC Angels and Saskatoon Sirens qualified for Lingerie Bowl Canada I, the numbers show that the quality of play in the league is very high.
The Regina Rage were an offensive juggernaut. While the Sirens had the dynamic duo of Furrler (the combination of Heather Furr and Anne Erler) propel them to the best record of the league, the Rage were a very tough opponent. Nikki Johnson and Kylie Rossler emerged as the stars on a Rage offense that played the Sirens in two very intense games.
A true East versus West clash occurred when the BC Angels and Toronto Triumph played each other twice. Although the Triumph beat the Angels in the final game of the season to claim their first franchise victory, they were equally tough in their first loss to BC. While Stephanie Manou is the face of the Angels franchise, the Triumph’s leading rusher, Petshauna Pinnock, was a bruising runner who was difficult for the Angels to contain.
