They won their first round playoff game against the Five Lakes Hawks by a score of 45-12. Last season, the Sting won the SPF league championship. Monroe County has won multiple NFA championships in the past, and has also won several national semi-pro football championships.
The Rampage ended the regular season with a 10-0 NFA record (10-1 overall), and are coming off of a 33-0 win over the Southern Tier Diesel in the first round of the playoffs.
