The Knights, after leaving the the iNWFL and the Rattlers name behind, continued their dominance in the EFL even though they stumbled out of the blocks to start the season and lost an overtime game to State Line.

 

For the third time in three seasons dating back to the Rattler days, Tri City and Walla Walla met for the championship with Tri City dominating the Stars once again.

 

Finally in 2007, following the defection of a few players, the Stars topped the Knights for the EFL Championship. 

 

2008 was a rough one for the Knights in the revamped EFL with the Stars bouncing the Knights from the playoffs and a shot at a 4th straight EFL Championship appearance.

 

The team would fold following the season due to financial issues surrounding team ownership due to an economic downturn.
