After the build-up to this match-up between the Idaho Horsemen and the Tri-City Rush, the Horsemen prove that they're still the top dog in the American West Football Conference.  The Horsemen jumped out to an early lead and went into half-time leading 35-7.  

In the second half, the Rush started to get it together and put points on the board with multiple touchdown strikes by QB Les Obie.  But as the Rush would score, the Horsemen would continue to put points up on the board holding off the (4-1) Rush.  The final in the 1st of 3 matchup Horsemen 61, Rush 48.  

The two teams will meet again in Pasco, Washington on July 31st and August 14th.  The Idaho Horsemen solidifies the #1 spot and moves to (6-1) on the season as the Tri-City Rush falls to (4-2). 

The Rush will now face the Oregon High Desert Storm at Home in the final of their 3 game series, with the winner taking a dominant lead for the #2 position on the leader boards.
