The Lightning were formed in 2006 by Randy Rogers.  The team experienced turmoil following the deployment of Rogers with his naval ship and a split amongst the coaches.  The team was late arriving for a scheduled game with the South Sound Shockers and had to use loaned uniforms to play the game.  The PNFC declared the game a forfeit due to rules violations and suspended the team from conference play for the remainder of the season.  Rogers returned and regrouped the team for the 2007 season.

The 2008 season was another rough one, and on May 17, the Lightning could only must 8 players for a game with Okanogan.  The Commandos assigned some of their own players to the Lightning for the day and romped over the combined team 55-14.

Following the 2008 season, Rogers renamed the team the North Sound Sting and relocated to Oak Harbor, WA.

Hopes were high after a scrimmage resulted in a 28-0 win to start the 2009 season, but the CFL competition was not a good gauge for the WFL competition as the Sting went winless.  The season also marked a bad spot for the WFL when the Stars arrived only to turn around to go home upset that the Sting's low numbers would be supplemented by a few players from the summer Bellingham Bulldogs.  The game went down as a forfeit win for the Sting.

2010 would be another winless season with a forfeit win mixed in when an April 3 game was postponed.  The Riverhawks opted not to cross the pass even though Yakima was traveling to South Sound on the same day.  The game was rescheduled for Memorial Day weekend but by then the Riverhawks numbers were too low and the Columbia Basin forfeited their second game of the season.
