Rebels on Tour - Part #3
Third leg of the Norwegian League was up, this time in Gjøvik. We had the weather on our side and the guys were ready to go all in after a well-earned summer vacation.
We had a hard group this time, and knew we had to perform every point to make it through the prelims.
First up was Dyelicious a mixteam with a hint of RMG Bratislava. It was tight points and flying penalties but it ended in a 4-2 loss for Rebels.
Next up was Rønholt Blast, Rebels fought hard and managed to control and hold Blast mostly in the back bunkers. By the time the score was 3-1 to Rebels ,Blast knew they had to do something and tried a final push, but it was already too late and Rebels won 4-2.
Last game in the prelims was Hardcore (yes, for you oldies in paintball, you heard right – the infamous Swedes and Norwegians from 12 years ago did a small comeback) Unfortunately for the veterans the game has changed a bit in the last 12 years and Rebels won 4-0.
In the semis we met Xspotz Factory team, a good team with experienced players. Xsportz was the team who knocked us out of the finals last time so it felt extra important. The game was tight and more than one point ended in a 1 vs 1 , in the end Rebels won 4-1 and went to the finals :-)
In the finals Dyelicious was up again, long points back and forth and at the score 3-3 the time ran out and it went to overtime. In the overtime point Rebels shot 2 off the break making the field open and closing the 4-3 win with 5 alive.
So 1st place in Norway finally this year, the elite division in Norway gets harder each year so were proud of the victory :-)
