Toronto Rush Rock U.S. East Division Teams

The Toronto Rush start their fourth AUDL season against a familiar opponent on Saturday night. With Saturday's game, the Rush will have opened every American Ultimate Disc League season by playing the DC Breeze 4 consecutive years (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016).

In those 4 opening matches, the Breeze have gone (0-4) versus the Rush. Moreover, the Breeze have never won a game against the Rush. DC is (0-8) all-time versus Toront including all regular season and post-season games.

The DC Breeze are not alone in this category of never beating Toronto Rush. No U.S.-based East Division teams has ever won a game against Toronto Rush. In 3 seasons, Toronto is (35-0) in the regular season when playing an American-based AUDL teams from the East Division. With that excellence it figures that Toronto Rush have been East Division Champions in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
