The Silverhawks have made the final three times and won it once, in 2012. This is the third time since the league’s inception that the Blue Devils will participate.

France

Champions League - Black Panthers v. seamen

The French league – FFFA – was idle this past weekend.

With two weekends left in regular season play, the Saint-Ouen Cougars should finish first in France although the Argonautes have a game in hand and with three victories would take over top spot. But third and fourth are wide open as the Dauphins, Black Panthers and Flash are all tied at 4-4 each with a victory over one of the other two. With two games remaining, this will be a thrilling finish to the French regular season.

The Cougars lead the league with a 7-0-1 record followed by the Argonautes in second at 5-2 and the Dauphins in third at 4-4. The Flash sit in fifth spot at 4-4 trailed by the Black Panthers at 4-4.

The Thonon Black Panthers hosted the Milano Seamen this past weekend in IFAF Europe Champions League Central play and handed the Seamen a surprising 32-23 defeat.

The Aix-Argonautes were in London to take on the Blitz and were surprised 27-21 by the tough London squad.
