A Battle of Underdogs

Both teams faced stiff competition to advance into the national championship game. In the Eastern Conference final, the Quad City Steamwheelers (11-7) went on the road to upset the top-seeded Frisco Fighters 48-41. The Fighters came into the game with an impressive 15-2 record and were up 42-26 at one point in the second half.

However, the Steamwheelers would make a ferocious comeback and late in the game, QB and IFL MVP candidate E.J. Hilliard launched a bomb to WR Keyvan Rudd for what would end up being the game-winning touchdown.

The Northern Arizona Wranglers (14-4) traveled to the dreaded “Snake Pit” and defeated perennial IFL powerhouse and six-time champion Arizona Rattlers 52-51 to secure the Western Conference title.

The Wranglers came back from a 14-point deficit in the 2nd half and iced the game when defensive back Trae Meadows intercepted a pass in the endzone. The victory was even more impressive when you consider the Wranglers went 1-13 in 2021 – their inaugural season of play.
