The Thunder defeated the Medina County Blue Streaks and the Lake County Cougars in the first two rounds and then bowed out of the playoffs in the third round in a close game to the Cuyahoga Mayfield Lancers. The Flashes came into the tournament as a big underdog but won two playoff games by defeating Murray Ridge #2 in the first round and the Stark DD Bulldogs in the second round. The Flashes fell to the Medina Flash in the regional championship game. All of the players, coaches and cheerleaders gave their best effort and proudly represented Portage County in a great way.
