Rush Wrap-Up a Strong 2016 Campaign with Silver in C-League

With a huge roster turnover, but a good core of players to hold the fort, the Rush team had a steady 2016 outdoor season and finished round robin play in a strong 3rd position with 7 wins, 4 losses, and 2 ties … a mere 3 points out of 2nd due to a close 1 – 0 loss to Phoenix Red earlier in the season who held that spot. It would seem that both Rush and Phoenix Red would continue to battle for those spots throughout the season. In semi-final action, Rush would face that same Phoenix Red and, this time, would emerge with a 1 – 0 win to face the undefeated Roadrunners team in the finals. In the Gold Medal Final, Rush would work hard but unsuccessfuly against a determined and more experienced Roadrunners team who were trying to work their way back up to B-League after being relegated in 2015. Nevertheless, it was an awesome season for the Rush team, finishing in fantasic 2nd place in C-league!
