Report

Kulosaari Roosters won Finland’s NFL Europe Schools Flag Football Championship in 2001, defeating Kaarela 32-21 in an exciting final. Karela were looking to overcome a 26-21 deficit with a couple of minutes to go, battling to the Kulosaari 7-yard line, but there they threw an interception in the endzone which was returned by the Roosters defense all the way back to the Kaarela endzone for the victory. Kulosaari now went on to represent Finland in the EFAF (European Federation of American Football) Group Championship against SHS Graz Air Force of Austria and Paris AS Flag of France. The winners of the EFAF Group progess to the World Flag Football Championships to be held in the German city of Berlin during Kinderfest – the Youth Festival – from 24th-27th August 2001.

The word Roost or Rooster comes from the Old English word for “To Come Back Home” or “To Sleep” meaning a Roosting Bird. It is also found in Old Norse as well as Manx, which comes from From Old Irish rúsc, from Proto-Celtic *ruskos, meaning Peel, Rind or Bark. [Reference: See 3]
