The Invaders joined the Cascade League in 2007 as a new team.  The 2008 version made the CFL Championship game losing to the Whatcom Raiders by 10 points.  Coach Hall would leave to form the rival Tacoma Cobras following the season.

 

2009 started off with a controversial game that the Invaders "won" or didn't win according to different sources.  The grudge match between the Invaders and the new break away team Warriors had bitter feelings and an even bitter ending.  The game went down as a 20-0 win for the Warriors but it may never be known what exactly the true ruling was.  For the second time in three years, the Invaders made the CFL playoffs with a losing record and made an exit losing to the Colts 30-12.

 

The Invaders stood alone in Tacoma after the Warriors folded their tents, but the CFL fracture forced Tacoma into the Western Washington Football Association for the remainder of the season.  Rumors began floating that the Warriors and Invaders were joining forces to become the "Washington Trojans" for the remainder of the season.

 

The 5-8 Invaders found themselves as WWFA runners-up invited to the FWFA Bowl game in Las Vegas, NV.  The game turned into an embarrassing rout as the Invaders quit at halftime down 52-0.

 

The 2011 edition made little progress finish 3-7 including two late season blowouts to the Washington Wolfpack and Bellingham Blitz, but still found themselves in the WWFA playoffs where they fell once again to the Renton Ravens which extended a 4-game losing streak.

 

The Shockers couldn't secure a home field and forfeited the 2012 season opener 2012.  That would be one of a few bright spots in the season as the Invaders continued to take steps backward finishing 2-6 including three of their last four games.
