Thumbs up Preview Huntington Beach

Hey this is Dave giving you on some pre-season action straight from Socal. This is a preview of the season to come as teams such as Dynasty, Joy Division, Wicked,Evil Factory, and the much anticipated new team Arsenal scrimmaged at Sc village this weekend.
Arsenal vs. Dynasty
I have to admit that i almost wet myself as i saw this game knowing that these would probably the 1st and 2nd ranking teams in the NPPl this season. The game started off well but like Rocky Cagnoni always says "You can't gunfight with Dynasty". Dynasty still looks to be the best team this season even with their new sponsors.

Dynasty vs. Wicked
This game was a suprise as the new team wicked came out with a very aggresive offensive front. After a brief confrontation between Cole, the ref, and a wicked player Dynasty held their ground but the game was over when they lost Sk in the back left and team wicked sweeped the side.

Joy Division vs Dynasty
Joy Division and Dynasty pretty much returned fire for the major portion of the game but the game reached a climax as the teams both had 3 players symmetrically placed on the field. In the end Dynasty lost count but still managed to pull teh win over the Swedish powerhouse.

Evil Factory vs. Wicked
This game started out with wicked's offensive front again but it seemed that wicked was slowing down after beating dynasty. In the end the front was pushed back and after some contreversial calls Evil Factory pulled the win.

Interview with assorted Dynasty players
Between games i had a chance to speak to some of the Dynasty players from the tower i was watching the games from. I pretty much asked how it was going and it seemed Dynasty was playing off and on. It was also odd that Ollie wasn't their during the day and it seemed that there were some confrontations between team captain Alex Fraige and other players from Dynasty. They all seamed to enjoy their new shockers and admitted it took a little getting used too. But in the end they said that they wouldn't shoot any other guns. Dynasty also mentioned that they needed some support at hunigton. One player remarked " Lately all i can hear is Go Naughty Dogs! we need more support"

Confrontations! (gossip)
I didn't really catch the whole part of the major fight that occured due to my own team's pratice and me watching the pros but heres what i caught: A larger member of Aftershock apperantly got in a fight with a player whos name or team i dont recall. Anyway by the time i got there two refs were trying to escort the husky player out and talk of "assault" lawsuits were abroud. It seemed that the Aftershock player could have done some major damage if he didnt decide to cooperate with the refs.
Anyway i really dont know a lot of the facts so dont count this portion of this thread as totaly accurate as i only witnessed portions at heard gossip from other players.

Well thats pretty much all that i witnessed and it seems like a real nice action packed season is coming up! Too bad my team (Sandstorm Rookie Division) didnt do so well : (. Anyway, remember you heard it from Dave 1st. Good luck Dynasty in your upcoming season

I have also been watching Dynasty pratice at SC Village for the last 2 months. They pratice long and hard rotating between first and second string.

I really enjoyed the last few practices before the PSP in Pomona. Dynasty spared with Wicked playing on the X-Ball style field for a coulpe of weekends. The first weekend both teams seamed a little rusty at first but really got into a groove as the day passed. Dynasty really schooled them well the first day crashing the field taking the snake off the break and making some gret run through moves.

I used the word schooled for a reason, who would not want to pratice with a team like Dynasty even if you gotta take the punishment they deal out? One thing comes from the schooling Wicked really steped up by the next weekend and started giving as good as Dynasty was. It was real impresive to see how a day of playing with a team like Dynasty could improve the skill level so quick.

The Dynasty guys a great team and they have so much to give if you watch, learn and listen. The one thing I kept hearing them say over and over from pratice at SC Village to on the field playin a great team like the Naughty Dogs was "FOCUS". They my not win every game but when it counts no team keeps it together and focuses on the game better than Dynasty.
