Hard2Overcome Wins 3rd Round of PAVS and Makes Local News!

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

Hard2Overcome continued their winning run by taking out Round 3 of PAVS on their home field at Adrenalin Paintball Club.

Although rain was forecast for most of the day it stayed away to allow perfect conditions for paintball. The team finished the day with 9 wins and 1 loss which further stretched its lead at the top of the table with just 2 rounds remaining. It was a day full of mixed feelings with team mate Mark Renden standing on the sidelines after having surgery on his ACL two days prior.

Team captain Craig McIver said that from the first game we wanted to perform well and do Mark proud, and during his 12 month recovery he will be coaching the team. Overall the day went well even with team numbers down and we are looking forward to the next round. Thanks once again to Dye and Devon Stutz for the awesome gear. As a bonus we had the local news crew come out and get some footage which has been posted on YouTube!

 

Hard2Overcome become Victorian State Champions! – Australia

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

DYE would like to say CONGRATULATIONS to our Aussie friends Hard2Overcome who recently took 1st and 3rd place at the Victorian Championships Race Event!

From Craig Mclver, Captain Hard2Overcome:

“Saturday 23rd March kicked off the first ever Victorian Championships Race Event held at Adrenalin Paintball Club, in Newborough Australia. The field itself is a soccer ground that the club shares for its tournaments and sets up on the week leading up to the event, and once over dismantles and stores everything away in there club house located at the venue. With rain and large winds in the days leading up to the event it was a relief to have a clear sky with some cloud as the event kicked off. The events games were played as a standard 5 man to 3 point on a Race 2 format.

Local Dye sponsored team Hard2Overcome was hoping that there home ground advantage would help them continue their great start to the year with another win after taking out Round 1 of PAVS. After dropping the first game of the day to their sister team H2O Blue, they adjusted some elements of their game plan and went into the lunch break with 2 wins & 1 loss. As the day progressed a lot of teams were all equal on points and it came down to the last round to decide who would play the finals.

H2O Blue played off for 3rd place in the finals against Tension who had recruited two Sydney Swat players with the end result being Tension wining 3-0 and taking out 3rd place. The final to see who would be the first team to be named Victorian State Champions would see South East Cartel against Dye’s own Hard2Overcome who were separated by 1 body in the lead up to the final.

From the first game Hard2Overcome placed heavy lanes towards the entry of Cartels key bunkers in a bid to stop them attacking from both the snake and Dorito side. The first point would go to Hard2Overcome after just 60 seconds of aggressive play without dropping a body. The second point seen Cartel bunker in hard at their initial positions and Hard2Overcome were forced to roll their guns in a bid to prevent them advancing, this made for a longer drawn out point which Hard2Overcome would drop only 1 body and go 2-0 with only 1 win away from the title. Off the break Hard2Overcome were more aggressive in their attack which seen them drop a couple of players and by the time they hung the flag for the third and final time they had 1 player left which was enough to win the final 3-0.

Hard2Overcomes captain Craig McIver said that the event was fantastic and had a great vibe in the pits. Every team played well on the day and created a challenge for us. We knew that come the finals we would be up against a tough opponent and Cartel always give us a great match. I am so proud of everyone on the team, the guys played outstanding today and we are now looking forward to the next round of PAVS. We would just like to thank Dye Asia and Devon Stutz for all the support they give us, and for letting us take the field with our DM13′s which once again were absolutely flawless and one of the reason we now have this title.”
