GRR: Air Force Academy Women
The US Air Force Academy has a long history of success, and the team to build on it this weekend.
Defending Women’s D1 fall champs, and defending D1 Women's 7s champs, Air Force goes into Sunday’s final against Navy having steamrolled their opponents, and as such are probably favorites.
Navy and Air Force will meet for an all-Service Academy women's DI fall final after Air Force flew by Minnesota and Navy just held off UConn in hte semis on Sunday.
Can Air Force do it again this fall?
The Women’s Fall DI playoff is a hugely competitive one, and one wherein Air Force was somewhat dominant last year with an impressive showing by some unsung tight forwards, and an imposing center pairing.
Last year’s women’s DI fall final was a study in frustration.
It wasn’t that observers like this writer wanted any one specific team to win or lose; we just wanted to see a good game. We didn’t. Errors and fumbles were the feature of a game where UConn, making the fewer of the errors, prevailed.
The United States Military Academy women's team won the unofficial series between service academies thanks to a 29-7 defeat of Air Force Friday night under the lights at Anderson Rugby Complex.
Kate Roose got the scoring started in the second minute, with Carissa Pekny suceeding on the conversion to put Army up 7-0 early on.
