Hey guys. Just wanted to fill everybody in with the scoop. We played 7 games today. We ended up 4-3 on the day and we made the cut along with Dynasty, BLAST and Bushwackers. The rest of the Pro teams are playing tomorrow all day.
Against Dynasty Shane got shot in his hopper and didn't realize it and got a 1 for 1. They ended up coming through the car wash and beating us out. Definitely a solid win for Dynasty as they ran us down capitalizing on our early penalty.
Against Explicit we beat them pretty convincingly with 6 bodies alive, although I do have to mention that Explicit played us with 6 due to a standing penalty from Huntington Beach.
Against Bushwackers things got crazy and we ended up coming through the car wash and closing out the last three players.
Against BLAST, Andy got to his snake corner and got shot in the leg and didn't realize it and got a 1 for 1. They ended up closing us up pretty quickly with Shane and myself crossed up in the corners.
Against XSV, everybody stepped it up big. Tholey had a gangster shot on Thomas Taylor. Thomas was set up at the U trying to cut Tholey from filling the car wash. Tholey took the car wash and shot Thomas in the face on the run. We ended up in a three on one against Rich Telford in the corner. Tholey tried to run him down and got shot, and Rich shot Andy diving into their snake in the close. It left myself and Rich in a one on one and I shot him out and hung the flag.
Against Legend, at the 1 second mark someone yelled "GO" over the loud speaker and half of our team false started. They pulled Adam Geis and Andy Horvath off the break, and Davey and Shane had to come back and tag up. Tholey got called on rub, and somehow some way Shane, Dooley and myself worked things back to a 2 on 2. We ended up losing the game, *****ing up a storm, and getting know sort of make up game or anything. It was pretty much a tough luck, we screwed up from the reffs. Luckily it didn't cost us Sunday. I do have to note though that this put us in a must-win game against Impact for both of our respective teams last games.
So, Impact, we were both coming into our last game 3-3. We both know we had to win this last game to make the cut. We broke out and a combo of Adam Geis, Andy Horvath, and Aaron Tholey laned both the snake runner and snake corner player. With two kills off of the break we slowed everything down and played methodical paintball. We ended up in a 2 on 2 that turned into a 2 on 1 with Dooley and myself against their snake corner. I shot him wrapping their car wash and ended up hanging the flag with 1 second left.
Note: Our two legitimate losses both started with one of our corner players getting a one for one. That's a huge blow off of the break considering you lose a corner and another player from jump street. Accidents happen, so long as we can avoid those sorts of mistakes we'll be in good shape for Sunday.
Long story short, we made the cut. We went on to Sunday tied with Bushwackers for 3rd place in our division. New guns, good practices and soldiers on the squad made this happen today. This is just the start though. We've got truck loads of more people to prove wrong on Sunday. Thanks for looking out and supporting us guys.
