Chicago, IL. If you’ve ever been fortunate enough to play on a team in any sport at all levels, and have the opportunity to end up with an unblemished record it is something that the participants never forget. Way back in January, when the Force first started out their quest for a championship, finishing the regular season undefeated didn’t sound far fetched to the players and coaches. Last Saturday at Holmgren Athletic Complex in front of an enthusiastic home crowd, the Force jogged onto the field with the confidence and swagger of a top team. From an execution standpoint the Force were efficient on both sides of the ball, and dominated the Wisconsin Wolves enroute to a 42-7 victory and a perfect 8-0 record for only the second time in franchise history.Read more >>
The final road trip of the regular season sent Dallas to a very warm Missouri Saturday. In the end, the Diamonds came away with a hard-fought win over a hungry Kansas City team. The 24-13 victory gave the Diamonds a 6-0 record and bragging rights as champs of the Mid-South division. The last meeting between these two teams was the 2008 Diamond season opener at home and the Diamonds dominated most of the way.
