CANTON, Ohio — In the rich history book of Boston sports, a team that may have been a footnote is now writing its own chapter.

The Boston Renegades won their third straight and sixth overall Women’s Football Alliance championship with a 42-26 victory over the Minnesota Vixen Saturday at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton.

Quarterback Allison Cahill, the WFA’s MVP in her 18th season of professional football, completed 21 of 34 passes for 218 yards with three touchdowns and another score on the ground on her way to the game’s most valuable player honors.

“This was the goal and since we didn’t get to play last year this was extra sweet,” Cahill said. “Once our offense got into a rhythm, we are hard to stop, and our defense really picked us up.”

Her TD passes went to Adrianne Smith, Ruth Matta, and Emily Beinecke. Matta and Chante Bonds also had rushing touchdowns.

The Vixen, playing in the title game in their first season in the WFA’s highest division, were led by running back Grace Cooper, who had 18 rushes for 192 yards and four touchdowns. Full Boston Globe Article
