The second stage of the Cup of Russia in the SFD and the NCFD in Rostov-on-Don – by Team B.O.L.T.

“At the entrance to the venue of the tournament, we felt the excitement.

Already at the entrance to the Rostov city I felt the energy. In the first stage in Pyatigorsk we offensively lost one game and ended up third. But we knew that, thanks to persistent trainings, we are in great shape and can show a much better game and avoid repeating mistakes.

In our division we were first to play, and unfortunately, did not have time to explore the field. The first game showed that knowledge of the area gives a great advantage. Each point for us ended up with a low wing found himself naked, and we could not turn the game around.

In the break between the first and the second game was a technical pause when we have the opportunity to disassemble the playground. After that, things went smoothly.

The second game, B.O.L.T. vs Absinthe, ended 3-0 in our favor.

After winning the second game, and having regained confidence, we began to experiment. We changed the flanks, attacked aggressively, played through the center and eventually advanced to the semifinals with a first place in the group.  In the semifinals, we met with the team which in the previous step for us was fatal. Banda team was one of the most experienced teams in this stage. But we do know that our goal is victory, and in the end, showing the aggressive play were able to reach the final. 3:1 The gang was moving on.

In the final, we met with a young team of Krasnodar – Stalker. The guys fought with dignity, but we were better prepared. 2:1 and the Goblet of this step we have taken to Krasnodar.”

With this victory, we came in first place overall in its division.

“In the first round The Absinthe team prevailed The Legion team with score 2:1, the game was very hard.

The second round we lost to B.O.L.T.  with a score of 0:3

The third round was the hardest. Chupacabra team was our main competitor in order to out of the group and at that moment had no defeats in the group.  To the first game we went out in four – one of our players never made it out of the pit-area. Immediately after running up we stay in three against five and we prevailed! Due to our game tactics we won with 3:0

The fourth round with Molotov light team was ended with our victory scored 3:0

After the prelims, we out of the group to semifinal from the second place in the group.

In the semifinal we played against the Stalker team. The first round longs 5 min 40 sec, where the Stalker team becomes winners. The second round is without scores. The third round didn’t take place. As a result the Absinthe team lost to the Stalker team with score 1:0

In the struggle for the 3-rd place we fought with the Banda team. They are the finalists of The Paintball Russian Cup 2012. In the first game in a minute there was only one our player and it was made a decision to stop the game in order to save time.

Afterwords there were two stressful victorious fights and one of them was without scores.

It was only 40 sec for the last round and the Banda team refused to go to the field.

We prevailed with scores 3:1″
