The Ottawa Swans Australian Football Club kicked off their 2017 season with a pair of exhibition matches on May 13 at Manotick Polo Club.

The defending Quebec league-champion women’s team faced off against the Montreal Angels, while the 2016 Ontario runner-up men took on the Quebec Saints, with both visiting teams coming out on top to win the Pony Platter.

Their league seasons run throughout the summer until the September playoffs.

Several local players will also compete for Canada at the Aug. 5-19 International Cup in Melbourne, Australia.
