Actually that was our team
It was named after the legendary former team FURY but was actually a mix of Colorado CRASH and Fury players ! (we had some D-1 Players join so we had to add a Semi Pro team for them to be able to play)
We actually had a couple teams on the ropes and we won our match against XSV ! We had Out in the Woods in a 6-2 before penalties, Avalanche in a 2 on 1 and we NEVER got rolled by any pro team (we got rolled by Semi Pro Teams lol)
((All of the Pros were a great help in adjusting to the new Division, inparticular Frank C. and Thomas T. ))
We are hoping to prove that we can compete on a Semi Pro level. We may have some work to do, but it seems as though we are headed in the right direction.
Though we will not be named Fury again next season, they have decided to purchase a pro franchise, there will be a few teams from Colorado playing in the higher divisions next season !
At a time when the sport in some places seems to be shrinking, due to the hard work of a few people in our region the scene in the midwest is growing !
Long Live Major League Paintball !
