Hostile Intentions and the first round of the Super 7s

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Last weekend Hostile Intentions journeyed to Rouse Hill, Sydney for the first round of Super 7s paintball. This forms part of Australia’s premier paintball competition series with a total of 4 rounds throughout the year. The heat would become a major issue over the weekend with mid 30 plus figures interfering with our minds and bodies.

A few minor rule changes have taken place during the off season. The most important one being the reduction in points for victory. Which has been reduced to 4, meaning the first team to score 4 points within the total game time of 10 minutes would be the winner. Competition started on Saturday morning with a total of 5 rounds scheduled for the day followed by a further 3 and finals on Sunday. Our first match up would prove to be our toughest, meeting the 2010 series second place, SWAT. Hostile Intentions were caught by surprise with the aggressive attack of SWAT, only securing a single point to the 4 taken by SWAT to secure the first round win.

Round 2 and Hostile was not going to caught napping again. Meeting the always unpredictable X-Fighters in a strongly contested match HI would emerge victorious with a 4 to 2 point win. The third round HI met Explicit who put up little resistance in a 4 to 1 encounter. Round 4 and HI would suffer its second loss to team Apocalypse. Again HI found they had to fight back from a deficit to stanch victory, but was
beaten by the time clock. The 5th and final round of day one. HI needed a strong victory to assume themselves of a place in the finals and to take a winning attitude into the second day of competition. HI met team
RAW, another Queensland based team. Hi achieved their goal, in a 4 to nothing win over RAW.

After day one HI walks away with the knowledge that another lose would push them out of the finals and the first day of day two would be the undefeated SWAT Kidz. Sunday and our finals hopes all rested on the next two games. HI met SWAT Kidz and experienced one of the hardest fought games of the tournament. We would eventually secure victory in a 4 to 2 score line.

7th and final preliminary round. A victory here would give HI a great run into the finals competition. We met Hustle, a team which has stepped up to the pro division for the first time this year. But we could be complacent and insuring a 4 to nothing win. After our performance on day 1 and the finals format only consisting of 1st vs 2nd for first place and 3rd vs 4th for third place. HI had to rely on results from other matches to confirm our position in the final. Unfortunately things didn’t go our way and the best we could hope for was a third place. Fortunately this contest would be against team Apocalypse to whom we lost to on Saturday. This was our chance for retribution, and so it was HI taking a convincing win over a team who had our measure earlier that weekend. This result confirmed Hostile Intention as 3rd place getters in the first round of Super 7s competition. Funnily enough the exact same result as last year in the first round only to come back and win the series for 2010.
