All-America

 

After a one-point playoff ouster at the hands of the Olympic Peninsula Eagles in 2008 the Thunder hoped to be a CFL contender in 2009.  Those hopes were dashed in the opener when eventual WFL champion Wenatchee blew out Snohomish and Kitsap hung 70 the following week.  The Thunder were demolished most of the season giving up 47+ points in 8 of 11 games including 68 or more three times.  The season closed with a 39-12 loss to the winless Jaguars of the NAFL.

 

The Thunder like the rest of the CFL teams went through turmoil after three weeks when the league fractured and the Thunder joined the departing teams in the newly formed Western Washington Football Association.  After a forfeit by the Tacoma Warriors who folded up after 3 forfeits due to reportedly not having uniforms, Snohomish went on a rare two-game winning streak sandwiched between shut out losses to the Colts and Ravens.  The season ended with 6-straight losses including a dismantling by the Stallions 72-8.
