2013 PSP Dallas Open – Thursday Recap

Friday, March 15th, 2013

The 2013 PSP Dallas Open has officially begun, an event set to be one of the most exciting professional paintball tournaments to date.

Thursday’s story of the day was without a doubt Chattanooga CEP grabbing an epic win over San Antonio X-Factor 7-1.  CEP has struggled since their pro debut, but it appears new team owner Steve Nicola and captain Robbie Goldsmith have made all the right moves during this crazy offseason and have built a more competitive squad for 2013.

Damage casually picked up 7-1 and 7-3 wins over Aftershock and Vicious, although 2012 PBA MVP Jason Edwards was disappointed in their margins.

Hard2Overcome (H2O) Wins PAVS Series Event #1

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

24th February – Saw Round 1 of the Paintball Association Of Victoria’s (PAVS) tournament paintball series kick off at Snipers Den Moorabbin on a very hot and humid day with temperatures reaching 36c / 97f

This State wide two division event was sporting a shiny new Dye PSP bunker set supplied by Paintball Addiction, the local Dye agent and major sponsor of the event.

The start of the new season of PAVS also saw Dye Paintball sponsoring the local team Hard2Overcome (H2O) in Division 1, who took to the field dressed head to toe in Dye’s 2013 playing including DM13’s and shooting Dye’s CG Paintballs.

The day didn’t start well for Hard2Overcome when they dropped their first game, but the team decided to stick with the game plan and if needed tweak it slightly as the day went on. By the time the lunch break came they were sitting on 4 wins 1 loss and were looking forward to resuming after the break.

Teams from both divisions were playing extremely fast paintball in ridiculous heat and Refs Inc were doing an outstanding job making sure the games ran smoothly while being fed large amounts of water to combat the heat of the day.

The afternoon session had Hard2Overcome pick up where they left off with solid wins which continued into the final round and as it would happen, the final game of the day. The team full of confidence went up against local team Havoc who are known for long hard gun battles, in the end Hard2Overcome got on top and came away with another win.

The win capped off a great event for the team and saw them take 1st Place with 9 Wins 1 Loss ahead of the nearest team on 6 Wins.

Captain of Hard2Overcome Craig McIver said he was “proud of his team, which has seen three new players come onboard and the team at the end of the day was really gelling together. Our DM’s were shooting so smooth all day and the Dye CG paintballs were hitting their targets with pin point accuracy and is the best paint we have ever used. We need to thank Dye Asia and Devon Stutz for showing faith in us and supporting the team, and we are excited to be taking the field every round this year using Dye.”
