North America The results are in from the second leg of the US Western Regionals, held in San Diego on August 14 and 15.

The Denver Bulldogs, one of US football's dominant clubs, again proved their strength, finishing top, but not without a hiccup, getting towelled in their final game against the hosts (possibly having relaxed after securing top spot). The improvement in Arizona was also evident, finishing runners-up, followed by the Orange County Bombers and San Diego. New boys the Mojave Greens failed to win a match, but in their first major tournament put in at least one strong showing and will hopefully improve rapidly. The successful tournament, plus the continuing developments in the Golden Gate AFL and up in Seattle and Portland, indicate that west coast football is alive and well.

The tournament results are listed below, but note that there was some controversy over the time-keeping in the drawn game between OC and Arizona, so the final standings are not yet considered official - WFN will issue an updated story if anything changes. Combined with the earlier leg in Denver, and possibly some debate (as not all teams attended), the western seedings for the 2004 US Nationals should be decided.
