At Saturday’s home game, the Dallas Diamonds football team defeated the Kansas City Tribe 55–35 in the quarterfinals of the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA) 2012 playoffs. As they head into the semi-finals, all that the Diamonds have to do is defeat the San Diego Surge in their home town, and that puts them into the finals. Not only does beating the Surge put them one step closer, but it also secures the team the American Conference Championship. They play July 21.
At 10–0, the team has played a perfect season so far. If they go on to win the world championships, it will be the team’s fifth ring.
Now comes the hard part — getting the team to San Diego. On their Facebook page, the Diamonds have asked for fan support to help cover traveling expenses. From the Diamonds:
