On Sunday November 12, 2012 the (SSFL) Sugar N Spice Football League made history by being the first women to play a full game of Women's Full Contact Football, in the New Dallas Cowboys Stadium. Mcallen Mystics (the 2012 SSFL Champions ) squared off against San Antonio Texas Cowgirls on that day.
Preceding this Historic Game, these same 2 teams played in the first SSFL Championship Game in Sept. of 2012. They were all on a season break when they got the invitation to play in the New Dallas Cowboys Stadium. It took them all of 5 minutes to confirm that each team would be ready for the game in two weeks! This also meant that they would miss thanksgiving at home in order to be ready to play this Historic Game. So after traveling thru the night, they arrived at 6a.m. on Sunday Nov. 12, 2012 to play each other, in this beautiful environment.
" It was like a dream seeing them on Dallas Cowboys field. They didn't have the normal game day behavior of 2 rivalry teams. They were all so happy and proud to be there. I don't know if all of them really knew the historic significance, but the reaction from spectators upon seeing these women warm up was incredible. This historic day and game in the Dallas Cowboy Stadium will be a special memory for the rest of their lives...." Commissioner Garza
