It's Football Time!

OMAHA-Spring arrived in the Central Plains of Nebraska, not with an April shower, but with a cloudburst of scoring by the Nebraska Stampede as they defeated the Minnesota Machine 54-12 in both teams’ Women’s Football Alliance (WFA) season opener on Saturday, April 7, 2014, on Rams’ Field at Ralston High School, in Ralston, NE. Erasing a five-year losing streak to the Machine, the Stampede rolled up 533 yards of total offense, fueled by a new team single-game rushing record of 248 yards by newcomer Francinea ‘New York’ Kania. Kania also delivered a 10 yard scoring pass to Kelley Bohaboj to close out the game scoring, bringing her to 258 yards of total offense, also a team single-game record. She also tied the team single game scoring record of 4 TDs for 24 points.

Stampede rookie quarterback Jen ‘Flip’ Filipowicz managed the Pony Express offense with unexpected poise and efficiency. Flip added 128 passing yards and 3 passing TDs on 6 of 8 attempts, and rushed for 26 yards on 5 carries, scoring a 2-point PAT.

Filipowicz spread the ball throughout the team. Dom Ausbie rushed for 46 yards on 8 carries with a TD and pulled in 3 receptions for 38 yards and 2 TDs. Brittany Van Camp made her Stampede debut with 37 yards on 9 attempts. Through the air Flip connected with rookie Liz Gamblin for 81 yards on two catches, the longest a breathtaking 57-yard strike along the west sideline.

Not to be outdone, the Stampede Red Wave defense pocketed 4 takeaways: 2 fumble recoveries, one by Dom Ausbie and one by Kelley Bohaboj, and 2 interceptions, one by Snoop Vaughn with a 17 yard return and one by first-year safety Delaney Kiernan accompanied by an 18 yard return from the Stampede goal line to quash a Machine scoring threat. The Red Wave sacked the Machine QB 5 times, notching 10 tackles behind the line of scrimmage, stifling both the Minnesota running and passing games.

The Stampede will be back in action visiting the Machine at their home field in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro on Saturday, April 26, 2014, after receiving a bye week on April 12, and picking up a forfeit from the defunct Iowa Steamrollers on April 19.
