Britain got their International Federation of American Football (IFAF) Women's European Championship campaign back on track with victory against Austria in Leeds.

The hosts were the pre-tournament favourites but were stunned on Monday (August 12) when they lost 9-6 against a strong Swedish side.

They bounced back today at the John Charles Centre for Sport with a dominant 36-6 victory win over Austria.

Reigning champions Finland recorded a second successive win by defeating Sweden 27-20.

Finland play Britain and Austria meet Sweden on Saturday (August 17) in the last of the round-robin matches.

A British victory could see them clinch the European title but the IFAF will publish the details of a potential tie-break situation tomorrow.

The group winners will be crowned European champions.
