Recap

Jyväskylä Jaguars deservedly won the 1998 SAJL Finnish American Football League Naiset (Women’s) league, triumphing 24-0 versus Helsinki 69ers in the Final after going 9-1 during regular season play. The 69ers had finished second on 7-3, with Oulu Northern Lights, from up near the Arctic Circle finishing on 6-4 and Helsinki East City Giants fourth on 5-5 also qualifying for the playoffs. Kuopio Kojootit had finished 3-7, and Vantaa Taft (Terrikulan American Football Team) appear to have forfeited all but one Tournament’s games, finishing on 0-10, although the two games they played they did not disgrace themselves.
