Toledo, Ohio can trace its women's football history all the way back to 1930. Thee Toledo Reign adds to Toledo's legacy this Saturday as they kick off their 10th season. The 2012 WFA season opens with a rematch from the final game of the 2011 season as the Reign welcome the Cincinnati Sizzle.
The Sizzle defeated the Reign 34-25 the final week of the 2011 season sending both teams to 4-4 records, good for second place in their respective divisions. While the Reign started hot with a 4-1 record, the Sizzle finished their season strong winning four of the last five games. The new WFA season finds the Reign and the Sizzle together in the newly formed Division 5 along with the Derby City Dynamite. With the Sizzle being the only divisional opponent for the Reign until Week 5 they will certainly be looking for a strong showing to take the early lead in Division 5.
Gallagher Stadium at Toledo Central Catholic High School is the site for the first game of the Reign's historic 10th season. Come cheer on the Reign as they take on the Sizzle in an early-season divisional matchup. Tickets are $6 at the gate with kids 5 and under FREE! As a special thank-you, the first 100 fans will receive a Thee Toledo Reign season schedule with a Reign player in action. After the game the Reign will be available to autograph the schedules so be sure to stick around and celebrate a Reign victory!
