Gladiator winning streak ends in U.S. Division III final
As upstarts in their first season of play, Life West Gladiators barreled their way through every obstacle to reach the U.S. National Finals undefeated. The Gladiators reached the pinnacle but fell a bit short of their ultimate goal when they met Old Blue of New York in Madison, Wisconsin on May 31, 2014 in the U.S. Division III Championship contest.
In a game marked by turnovers, the Gladiators held their own but couldnÕt overcome Old Blue. Penalties, lost opportunities and errors plagued the home team as they found themselves without a score in the first half. In the second half, the Gladiators were down 20-0. Finally putting points on the scoreboard, it wasnÕt enough as the final seconds elapsed clinching an Old Blue victory 25-7.
Life West Gladiators come home with an enviable record, undefeated in league play and post season regional and national competition, leading to the championship game. They are truly champions! It was a great season. Congratulations!
