July 1, Halifax, NS – With the second day of competition now completed at the 2023 Senior Flag Football Nationals, the semi-finals matchups are set for an exciting final day at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, NS.

Women’s Championship

The two Football Quebec teams that had started strong on Friday continued with their winning ways on day 2 of the tournament.

While Subzero dropped their last group game against Team Ontario 1 (19-31, they dispatched Team Nova Scotia earlier in the day (55-6) to secure the top spot in the pool going into the playoffs and earning a bye in the play-in games. Subzero then completed a convincing win over Team Ontario 2 in their quarter-final game to set themselves up for a rematch against Team Ontario 1 in the semi-finals on Sunday morning (9:30 am).

On the other side of the bracket, Les Bleues never faltered. They started the day with a win over North Sask (20-9) before rounding up group play with victory over the Rock (13-8), completing the group phase with a perfect 4-0 record and earning a bye for the play-in games. Les Bleues then faced Team BC in the quarter-finals matchup, securing a spot in the final four with a win (40-14). They will battle North Sask on Sunday morning (9:30 am) for a spot in the championship final.

The Women’s Flag Football National Championship match will be played Sunday, July 2nd starting at 3:30 pm local time at Saint Mary’s University.

Men’s Championship

On the Men’s side, Team Canada and the Saskatchewan Gamecocks rose to the top of their respective pools to earn a place in the last four standing.

Team Canada completed a perfect group phase, collecting two more wins on Saturday. They first got past First Class (29-19) before inching past Team Ontario by a close score of 34-32. That record propelled them directly to the quarterfinals, where they faced the Ballers (22-20), and narrowly secured their spot in the semi-finals. They will have to once again get the better of a strong Team Ontario if they wish to compete for the championship title on Sunday.

The Gamecocks also rose to the top of their pool with a perfect 4-0 record going into the playoffs, thanks to Saturday wins over Yeti’s (59-12) and Party Crashers (40-32). That set them up for a date with the Winnipeg Rebellion in the quarter-final game, a game in which they took care of business (48-14). They will now face First Class in the semi-finals for a chance to play for the title.

The Men’s Flag Football National Championship will conclude Sunday with the two semi-final games at 11 am local time, followed by the championship match at 5 pm, all at Saint Mary’s University.
