They were supposed to participate in the 2020 season but could not due to the COVID-19 lockdown. The team finished the 2021 season with a 10–3 record but only made it to the playoffs’ semifinal, as the Massachusetts Pirates defeated them 43–22.

When the 2021 season ended, the team’s head coach, Dolezel resigned and was replaced by Billy Back, a former Spokane Shock head coach.
