MANHATTAN — Brooklyn resident and longtime athlete Andrea Casillas attended her first Australian football game seven years ago in her home state of Arizona. Right away, she was hooked.

"I tried it just one day and I loved it," she said. "It's really active and you get to a point where you've played enough basketball and volleyball and want something new."

On a beautiful early autumn day the New York Magpies traveled to play the Boston Demons in Lexington, MA. Both sides had nine players who played every moment of two 20-minute halves. Despite the fact that each side fielded a number of inexperienced players - including a New Yorker who discovered footy just a week ago - both sides displayed impressive continuity and team play in front of the robust crowd that had turned up for the event.
