The 6th annual North American Bowl was the 23rd USFA National Championship.  The game featured everything you would expect in such a prestigious game.
The New York Predators were last year’s National Champion and the Inglewood Blackhawks had an undefeated season and were certainly considered the “best in the West” the last three years.
There was hard hitting defense right from the opening series, along with stellar defensive play during the entire game.  There were 8 touchdowns and 3 field goals.  Half time had Inglewood with a 17 to 14 lead.  The second half started with the Predators taking the lead and holding it until the Blackhawks scored a TD with 2:17 remaining in the game.  

Final score:   Blackhawks 34        Predators 31

The inaugural Tangerine Bowl featured two Regional Tournament winners.  The West Mass Warriors won the USFA Harvest Bowl 2 Tournament and the Detroit Diesel won the NFE Mid States East Tournament.
The Warriors scored on the opening possession with a 7-play drive for the first score.  They lined up for a field goal and ran a surprise pass play for a touchdown.  The PAT failed.  In the second quarter the Warriors took advantage of a poor punt by the Diesel and scored 4 plays later.  The scoring ended with 4:45 left in the game when the Warriors intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown.

The 5th annual Orange Blossom Bowl was the NFE AA National Championship and featured two Regional Tournament winners.  The Michigan Vikings won the NFE Midwest Football Tournament and the Prince Wm (VA) Monarchs won the USFA Mid Atlantic Fall Classic.  The Monarchs have a long history of successful seasons.  The Vikings are a team on the rise in the Great Lakes Football League.
The scoring began with less than one minute played when the Monarchs scored on an 81-yard run for a TD.  Less than 3 minutes later the Vikings responded with a 35 yard run for a TD.  Over the next 15 minutes they each scored again, making it a 12 to 12 tie.  However the Vikings defense finally stopped the Monarchs and the Viking put up 4 more touchdowns.
