Atlantic CX4 and MXL Event 4

September 14th, 2011 / 7:13pm

Our final event of the season and got to see the conclusion to both divisions.
The CX4 division had our 10 teams. This event showed again our 4 strong teams in the finals.

These’s teams seem to have been the same reoccurring teams of Charlottetown, Storm, Mount Pearl and Oromocto.
Yet like every other event we seemed to always have Oromocto competing for first place. This time it was with Mount Pearl that came victorious against the New Brunswick team winning a 2-1 match battle. This one event victory though for Mount Pearl wasn’t enough to allow them the points needed through the whole season to get the CX4 first place in the season medals.
Our Winners for the season was Oromocto with a score of 192 (close to a perfect score of 200), followed by Mount Pearl in second place 175 then Storm 168 and Charlottletown 157.

The teams have certainly grown throughout the season. I’m eager to see a lot of the players form RXL teams for the upcoming 2012 season as the CX4 division will be taken down and be made into a RXL division so the younger players can do Xball still paintball yet at a lower caliber of competition.

Our sunday Games we had some close battles. The games to watch for the first place contenders were Torbay vs Troopers and Torbay vs Wreckhouse. The first game of T vs T was a close fought battle with Troopers coming strong out the gate beating the 1st line of the Torbay team. However, like in all games of Xball just because you winning or keeping up in the first half doesn’t mean it will stay constant in the second half. The Troopers seem to have lost steam or simply couldn’t seem to figure out the the ways torbay’s players were getting their shots. As the game progressed it seems like the trooper weren’t making the moves needed. The game ended with 7-5 Torbay.
This victory would hold the first place for Torbay giving them the medals.
The last game of the day have the Newfoundland Battle. Torbay vs Wreckhouse. The grudge of the two teams make for a very quick a brutal game. The second line was played more with the Torbay teams, yet the game was well played by both side. With a few penalties issues on Torbay side. Wreckhouse took the rounds and won the battle of the rock with a score of 9-6.
