The Opal Series 2016 concluded on Saturday 3 December as 17 of this years 19 competing programmes headed to Sheffield to compete in the final of the first series in the British Women's American Football season - The Opal Series.

Strong favourites coming into the year, the Coventry Cougars dominated on their route to the Grand Final, while second place finishers in the Northern Conference upset the seedings to defeat the Southern Champions, the Northants Titans, in the semi-finals.

The day saw around seven hours of near constant flag football, played across six pitches, before the two finalists squared off under the floodlights.

And also we'd like to thank BAFA Women's football for their support and asking us to attend, and especially to John Hill and his team from http://PullingTheFlag.co.uk for stepping up at the last minute to assist with the live commentary after #TeamDC was left short handed due to illness and injury.
