The warthogs traveled to Atlanta this past weekend to face Palm Beach Panthers as part of the Final 4 weekend .Great match to watch that ended in the Florida teams favor . The Panthers brought out a well coached team with a good playing system , Their players stepped on the field ready to fight hard and take home the victory . The Warthogs had a less than desired game with lots of handling errors and and frantic play at times. They played very well on defense but unfortunately, a red card in 35th minute proved costly for the Arizona team as they had to play one man down for most of the game . It was a hard fought battle but Palm Beach ended taking home the victory and eventually the National championship.
2022 was a great year for the Red Mountain Warthogs as they are on their quest to rebuild the club from the ground up .
The team is young and eager to develop and win . The players are disappointed in the result and are ready to come back harder next year .
