BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Boston is the city of champions once again.
The Boston Renegades, the city's women's tackle football team, took home their fourth straight Women's Football Alliance title yesterday after beating the Minnesota Vixen 32-12 yesterday in Canton, Ohio. This marks the team's 7th championship and their 31st win in a row.
Tytti Kuusinen opened the scoring for the Renegades in the first quarter with a rushing touchdown and from then on they never looked back. The Renegades would end the half of 20-0 thanks to scores by Chanté Bonds and Ruth Matta, and after a scoreless third quarter, Katie Falkowski scored to make it 26-0 in the fourth.
The Vixen did manage to get on the board in the fourth, cutting the Renegade's lead to just 20 points, but Bonds shut down any hope of a comeback with her second touchdown of the game with just over minutes left. Bonds, who was filling in for starting quarterback and 2022 MVP Allison Cahill, ended the day with 127 rushing yards and two touchdowns, including a 39-yard rushing score.
After the game, Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who flew the team to the game on the Patriots' plane, congratulated the Renegades on their title win. He said their win means a lot for the success of women's sports, especially with the recent 50th anniversary of Title IX.
"You all show such a great effort and what it means to young gals everywhere," Kraft said. "We're happy to bond with you and we're very proud."
Kraft later invited the team to come to the Patriots' preseason game on Aug. 11th.
