Season and Playoffs Report

Regular Season Report (29 April – 26 June 2022)

In an extremely competitive 2022 Fútbol Americano de México FAM-YOX regular season five teams finished within a game of the league champions: Rojos CDMX, Parrilleros Monterrey and Marlins Los Cabos all finished on 6-2 and Caudillos Chihuahua and Tequileros Jalisco both finishing on 5-3. With only four teams making the playoffs Tequileros Jalisco were the unlucky one of the five. Pioneros Queretaro and Jefes Ciudad Juarez both finished 3-5 and Bulldogs EdoMex and Tiburones Cancun both finished 1-7. [References: 2-4]

Playoffs Report (3-16 July 2022)

Rojos CDMX advanced to the Silver Bowl (Balon de Plata) with a superlative 40-0 defeat of Marlins Los Cabos while Parrilleros de Monterrey had a close 27-23 win over Caudillos Chihuahua to meet Rojos in the Silver Bowl. The Silver Bowl itself, played two weeks later was also a close game with one touchdown separating the teams in the end as Rojos CDMX won 21-14 versus Parrilleros Monterrey. [References: 3]

Week / Semana Recaps

Week / Semana 1 Recap

With three new teams debuting in the first LFA season since COVID shut down the 2020 season after five games, there was a lot of uncertainty in week 1 of the Liga de Futbol Americano in Mexico. Two of those new teams: Galgos Tijuana (Tijuana Greyhounds) and Gallos Negros (Black Cockerels) Queretaro met in Tijuana, with Gallos Negros coming out convincing winners, 33-9. The other expansion team, Reyes Jalisco (Jalisco Kings) were at home in Guadalajara to Raptors EdoMex, but came out on the losing side 10-13. The third match of the weekend saw the capital city side Mexicas CDMX lose 7-10 in Mexico City to Dinos Saltillo. Reference: [1]

Week / Semana 2 Recap

Dinos Saltillo moved to 2-0 with a 24-17 victory over Fundidores Nuevo Leon at Estadio Francisco I. Madero, in Fundidores first game of the 2022 season. Mexicas CDMX and Raptors EdoMex both stand on 1-1 after Mexicas close 10-8 victory at FES Acatlan in EdoMex. The third game of the weekend between Gallos Negros Queretaro and Reyes Jalisco was postponed until 17 April. [Reference: 1].

Week / Semana 3 Recap

Dinos Saltillo won their third game of the year 24-10 versus Gallos Negros Queretaro to go 3-0, two wins ahead of nearest rivals, Reyes Jalisco, Raptors EdoMex, Gallos Negros Queretaro, and Fundidores Nuevo Leon all of whom stand at 1-1. Fundidores defeated Mexicas CDMX 27-13 to gain their first victory, and leaving Mexicas at 1-2 in the process. Expansion franchise Galgos Tijuana fell to 0-2 after losing 0-10 to Reyes Jalisco. [References: 1-1b]

Week / Semana 4 Recap

Dinos Saltillo continued to be the team to beat in LFA 2022, going 4-0 with a 14-6 victory at Galgos Tijuana, who drop to 0-3. The biggest win of the week, however, belonged to Mexicas CDMX, who won 46-12 at Reyes Jalisco. The Mexicas improve to 2-2 at the Reyes drop to 1-2. A big game between Fundidores Nuevo Leon and Raptors Edomex, both 1-1 coming into the game, went 23-20 to Fundidores. [References: 1-1b]

Dinos Saltillo (5-1) were assured of the Regular Season title and a bye into the Semi-Finals after arch rival from Nuevo Leon, Fundidores Nuevo Leon, lost 35-24 at Reyes Jalisco (3-3) in a shock result. Fundidores (4-2) were still assured of second place and a bye into the Semi-Finals also. Joining Fundidores on 4-2 were Mexicas CDMX, the Capital City team winning 30-22 at expansion team Galgos Tijuana who finished 0-6 and out of the playoffs; and Raptors EdoMex, the team from Naucalpan in Mexico State (Estado de Mexico) where the Irish Institute School is based, who won 28-19 at Gallos Negros Queretaro, who also qualified for the Playoffs in sixth position. [References: 1-1b]

LFA Playoffs Preview

The First Round of Playoffs pits #3 Mexicas CDMX (4-2) at home to #6 Gallos Negros Queretaro (1-5) and #4 Raptors EdoMex (4-2) at home to #5 Reyes Jalisco (3-3). The first match looked like it should be a formality earlier in the season for Mexicas, who defeated the much improved Gallos Negros 16-11 in Week 6 at home in Estadio “Pallillo”, but with the three expansion teams improving each week it is no longer a certainty they shall win. Likewise Raptors EdoMex, who defeated Reyes Jalisco, another expansion team, 13-10 at Gualajara in Week 1, cannot count on victory in the second game, with Reyes Jalisco becoming the first expansion team to defeat a pre-covid team in the last week of the season when they shocked Fundidores 35-24. The winners shall meet either #1 Dinos Saltillo (5-1) or #2 Fundidores (4-2) in the Semi-Finals with the winners of those games meeting on 21 May in Estadio Caliente to decide Tazon Mexico V (Mexico Bowl V) Champions. [References: 1-1b]

Playoffs Round 1

Raptors EdoMex won through to another Semi-Final with a 26-6 defeat of Reyes Jalisco while Gallos Negros Queretaro continued to improve with a 14-7 win at Mexicas CDMX. [References: 1-1b]

Semi-Finals

Gallos Negros Queretaro reached the Tazon Mexico (Mexico Bowl) in the debut season, after a close 27-20 victory over Dinos Saltillo in the Semi-Finals. Fundidores Nuevo Leon won the right to play them in Tazon Mexico V with a 30-27 defeat of Raptors EdoMex. [References: 1-1b]

Tazon Mexico V (Mexico Bowl V)

Marcelo González opened the scoring for Fundidores Monterrey with an 11 yard run in the first quarter for a 6-0 lead (the Point After Touchdown was missed). Jason Smith recovered a fumble for a touchdown in the second quarter and with Alberto Gonzalez kicking the PAT Queretaro Black Roosters were leading 7-6 before the Smelters recovered the lead through a Field Goal to leave Monterrey 9-7 up at Halftime.

In the third quarter the Black Roosters’ Quarterback Marco Garcia sneaked into the endzone to make it 14-9 to Queretaro after another successful PAT. Monterrey again took the lead when Brandon Calzoncit ran in for a TD, but again the PAT was missed to leave Monterrey 15-14 up. Fundidores sealed the victory and their first ever Mexico Bowl with a Field Goal in the fourth quarter to leave the Final score Fundidores Monterrey 18 Gallos Negros Queretaro 14. [References: 2]

Preview

The 2022 Liga de Futbol Americano (Mexico) kicks off its sixth season. First played in 2016 between four teams (Condors CDMX, Eagles CDMX, Mayas CDMX and Raptors EdoMex) with all four teams playing in a single Arena in Mexico City (CDMX – Ciudad de Mexico) [6, 9], the league has grown to a 10 team league in 2022 with the addidion of Reyes Jalisco (Jalisco State Kings) in Guadalajara and Galgos Tijuana (Tijuana Greyhounds) from Estado Baja California (Baja California State) [1] .

All four original teams have since moved or changed name, with Mayas currently playing in Puebla State, Condors moving for 2022 to Queretaro, Eagles changing their name to Mexicas in 2017 and Raptors EdoMex (Estado de Mexico – Mexico State), moving to Naucalpan in Estado de Mexico, where the Irish Institute is based. Mayas CDMX won Mexico Bowl I in 2016 and in 2017 there was the addition of Dinos Saltillo and Fundidores Monterrey (Monterrey Smelters) in Nuevo Leon, in the North near Texas. That year the league was again won by the Mayas [2,3].

In 2018 the league was won by Mexicas CDMX, one of two teams named after Native Mexican inhabitants (the other is the Mayas) [4,5]. 2019 saw the addition of yet two more teams: Artilleros Puebla (Puebla Gunners) and Osos Toluca (Toluca Bears), bringing the total to 8 teams. Condors CDMX won the Mexico Bowl (Tazon Mexico) and the Raptors EdoMex were beaten finalists for the third time in four years (Dinos Saltillo lost the Mexico Bowl in 2017) [7, 8]. 2020 was a difficult year, with the start of the covid pandemic, and despite the addition of a ninth team, Pioneros Queretaro, the league remained at 8 for the season due to Mayas sitting out.

The 2020 league was cancelled after 5 of 8 regular season weeks due to the pandemic [10,11] and in 2021 the Artilleros dropped down to the Futbol Americano de Mexico (FAM) League with the Mayas returning. The 2021 season, however, was cancelled in its entirety [12, 13] and for the 2022 season, despite the addition of the Galgos Tijuana and Reyes Jalisco, there shall be only seven teams playing, as Pioneros Queretaro drop back down to the Futbol Americano de Mexico (FAM) league and Artilleros Puebla, Osos Toluca and Mayas take a years break.

The 2022 season shall start on March 5th and there shall be seven rounds with each team playing six regular season games. Teams ranked 1 and 2 shall receive a bye to the Semi-Finals and the 3rd to 6th placed teams play in the Quarter-F
