The Northern Anarchy women’s football team opens their Western Women’s Canadian Football League season this Saturday in Lethbridge. It’s the second year of operations for the Anarchy, and coach Aaron Hodges is expecting growth from the squad that went 1-3 in their inaugural season last year.
“We played in a jamboree last weekend and we got some good feedback from some of the other coaches, saying that we are a totally different team this year that what we were last year.”
Hodges says they will be missing a few players this weekend due to high school graduations. The team is mostly made up of women from Grande Prairie and Sexsmith. He adds they are still looking for more girls to join the team. The Anarchy practice every Monday and Wednesday night at 8pm at Alexander Forbes school.
