On Saturday 19 December 2015 the UNSW Raiders Gridiron Club hosted the Gridiron NSW Bowl Games. It was an exciting day filled with lots of great football and atmosphere. The UNSW Raiders Club started the day with a special Opal Bowl Grand Final breakfast for our womens team.
After a lovely start to the day the women kicked off at 12 noon and did battle for the Gridiron NSW Opal Bowl. It was a hard fought, thrilling game in which the UNSW Raiders remained undeafeated for the season defeating the UTS Gators 40-16 to take out the 2015 Championship.
This is the first championship win for the UNSW Raiders women who are the first Raiders team since 1987 to take out a championship with an undefeated season. It was also the first championship win for the club in 10 years!
Congratulations to all the women and congratulations to the 2015 Opal Bowl MVP – #43 Renae Hahn.
