The Montreal Angels won the 2010 Canadian Women's National title with a big win over the Edmonton Emus Saturday. In a tough match the Angels skipped out to an early lead, holding off a determined Edmonton team before putting the game beyond reach in the third quarter. Edmonton to their credit fought back in the last quarter outscoring the Angels but it was not enough Montreal cruising home to a 72 point victory.

The Canadian Women's national team defeated the U.S squad in the recent 49th Parrallel Cup. Two Angels players, Margo and Aimee Legault were included into that team. If there were any doubters about their abilities they were quickly squashed as both girls put in stellar performances for their country and were instrumental in Canada's first win over the U.S. Inside sources from the national team were quoted as saying "both girls played like guns". A flattering compliment for the sisters who have only being playing Aussie rules for twelve months. Both girls will be doing their best to clinch some more silverware as the Angels go head to head with the Edmonton Emu's in the National tournament on September 4th at Parc Cluny in Laval.

The Montreal Angels headed to Toronto for the first time to take on the Blues. In a downpour the bleu et blanc dominated play despite some questionable physical play from their opponents. It was once again the unstoppable play of the Aimee and Margo Legault that led the way from the centre. The backline pressure of Mimi and Roasty restricting a Blues team that had a full bench but still could not out-run the Angels. With Uche and Danielle up forward with surprise packet rookie Kathrine also contributing the Angels extended their record to 4-0 over the Blues.

Two Angels in Calgary

A few weeks ago, Aimee and Margo Legault travelled to Calgary, Alberta to train with the Northern Lights squad. Nicknamed "the sisters" by their new teammates, they were pleased to meet such a great group of fellow Aussie rules players from Toronto, Calagary, Edmonton, and Vancouver. The two day training camp got off to a strange start with a considerable amount of snowfall. The cold weather was unexpected but the team still managed to stick to the schedule. A big thank you to the coaching staff for a wonderful experience and a special thank you to Beck Jones for being such a lovely tourguide/chauffeur.

The Northern Lights will be competing in the 49th parallel cup in Toronto on July 31st-August 1st. For more details,

Girls set for AFL teams in national competition plan in Australia

LOOK out Buddy, Juddy and Gazza - footy women could soon have a league of their own.
AFL chiefs have commissioned a review of the future of women's football with an eye to creating a female national competition.
Backers say women players could pull on the boots for sister sides of the AFL's biggest teams within a decade.
Hawks president Jeff Kennett yesterday revealed Hawthorn was poised to announce its own women's team, through a partnership with an existing female club.
To be known as the Hawks, the team would benefit from a close relationship with the 2008 premiers.
"We are well on the way to getting the deal done," Mr Kennett told the Herald Sun. "There are 80,000 women playing football in Australia and I can actually see this working."
The Melbourne Football Club has established links with the Victorian Women's Football League, and North Melbourne is exploring options.
Supporters say a "WAFL" could even command its own broadcast rights deal.
The review will be conducted by AFL Victoria consultant David Code and presented to the league later this year. AFL community development manager Dean Warren said the review was aimed primarily at overhauling female football at junior, suburban and state levels, but forming a national league was on the radar.
