Report

The 2000 NWFL Championship Game II was won by Houston Energy 39-7 versus the inaugural 1999 Champions New England Storm from Providence, Rhode Island. Houston had started off the 2000 season with two big losses to Central Division’s Colorado Valkyries (0-58) and Minnesota Vixens (8-30) in weeks 3 and 4 after they had defeated Austin Rage 52-25 and 30-20 to start the season. By the time the playoffs had come around the Energy were ready for revenge. After another victory over Austin Rage and then Oklahoma City Wildcats in weeks 5 and 6 Houston had finished the regular season as West Division Champions on 4-2. Minnesota Vixens had won the Central Division on 5-0, one game ahead of Colorado Valkyries, while in the South, Daytona Beach Barracudas went undefeated on 6-0, well ahead of Miami Fury (3-4) and Tampa Tempest (0-6). [References: S1-S16]

The East Division saw a battle between New England Storm and New York Sharks, with both finishing the regular season on 4-2. The Storm then won the National Conference Wildcard Game 10-7 versus the Sharks in Providence, while Houston gained revenge for their earlier heavy loss to Colorado, winning 13-0 in the American Conference Wildcard Game. The American Conference Championship saw Minnesota Vixens suffer their first loss of the season, 14-35 to Houston Energy, and likewise in the National Conference, Daytona Beach Barracudas fell to their first reverse, 26-29 in overtime to New England Storm, in what was instantly the greatest game yet in WPFL history. The WPFL Championship Game II, played in Houston, Texas, went to the Energy 39-7 versus the New England Storm. [References: S1-S16]

About the WPFL 2000

The Women’s Professional Football League (WPFL) of 2000 to 2007 was the fourth Professional Women’s Football League in USA. The original Women’s Professional Football League operated out of Cleveland in Ohio from 1965 to 1971. The WPFL I played in Toledo, Cleveland, Toronto, Buffalo and Pittsburgh. By 1974 the National Women’s Football League (NWFL) was formed including teams such as Toledo Troopers, Dallas Bluebonnets, Forth Worth Shamrocks, Columbus Pacesetters, Los Angeles Dandelions, California Mustangs and Detroit Demons. In 1978 the California-based NWFL franchises broke away forming the Western States Women’s Professional Football League (WSWPFL) and by 1988 the NWFL had further split into two organisations: the Toledo-based NWFL and the Women’s Tackle Football Association (WTFA) based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Professional Women’s Football died out after that year in USA, but in Germany and Australia the Professional Women’s Leagues were only starting up. [References: H-1]

By 1999 the time had come for a new Women’s Professional Football League. The WPFL II held a “No Limits” Barnstorming Tour which was won by New England Storm. The 2000 WPFL was the first full season of the League, and featured 11 teams in four divisions: A Central Division consisting of Minnesota Vixens and Colorado Valkyries; a West Division comprising Oklahoma City Wildcats and two Texas teams, Houston Energy and Austin Rage; a South Division with three teams in Florida, Daytona Beach Barracudas, Miami Fury and Tampa Tempest and an East Division with two teams in New York State, the Buffalo-based New York Galaxy and the New York City-based New York Sharks as well as Providence, Rhode Island based team, the New England Storm.
