The Tri-City Rush are "Back 2 Back" AWFC Champions

by AWFC Insider

Pasco, WA - The Tri-City Rush are the 2022 American West Football Champions!!!    They are the "ONLY" team in the AWFC's short history to go Back 2 Back as Champions!  Congratulations!!!!! The Rush has put themselves in the record books for becoming the second organization in the AWFC history to finish the season undefeated at (10-0) from start to finish. This is something that is hard to accomplish at any level and the boys in Tri-City earned it!!! In only 2 years, the Rush has an impressive record of (19-2) and is still undefeated at the Hapo Center (Pasco, WA).  With their rowdy, supportive fans the Hapo Center is a hard place to play!   

Last night's match-up was quite entertaining for an AWFC finale.  The Wenatchee Valley Skyhawks showed why they should have been in the Championship game by making a game of it.  In the final 3 minutes, the Skyhawks were only down by 10 points.  But with an interception on a 2-point conversion returned for a touchdown, the Rush was able to extend the lead to 12 and eventually finished off the Skyhawks  57-32 in the final minutes giving them their 2nd consecutive AWFC Championship!

The American West Football Conference and its member teams would like to thank our fans and partners for another successful year!  See you in 2023!!!  #repthewest
