Fresh from last week’s Singapore Paintball Series (SPS) 2013 Leg 1 which Red Sevens clinched a 2nd Runner Up podium finish, the team continued their fighting momentum to their next event in Malaysia and won the Division 2 Champion title.
Sponsored by Dye Asia, Red Sevens Paintball Club is based in Singapore and is one of the most prolific paintball teams in Asia. Formed in 2006, Red Sevens has won several international accolades in the Asia region including the Singapore Paintball Series where the team has claimed three Overall Series Championship Titles over the last five years.
“We are always on a lookout to strengthen the team and we are glad to have recently recruited Paul Atkin from Thailand who will be joining the team for the Malaysia events this season. Paul’s vast experience playing and will definitely add firepower to the current squad”, remarked Ben Seow, who captains the team. Since formation, more than 50 players from across the region has donned and competed under the Red Sevens brand.
In 2013, Red Sevens renewed their sponsorship with Dye Asia and will be shooting with Dye DM13 and using the Ultra Lite apparels for all their competitions.
During the event, Red Sevens qualified as the third qualifier after the preliminary rounds with three wins and two losses. During the Semi Final game, the team was scheduled to met Team Kraken from Malaysia and went away with a close 1-0 score in a Race-3 Format game.
During the Finals, Red Sevens met Team Simpsons, whom they have lost 3-0 during the qualification. A new game plan was devised to counter the Simpsons which saw Red Sevens claiming a quick first point. In the second point, Simpsons fought back hard to level the game. With time running out in the third game, Red Sevens were close to wrapping up the Finals only to have the game buzzer running out on the team.
In the overtime game, both teams were disciplined in their shooting lanes with neither team wanting to throw in the white towel. In the end, it was the Red Sevens who won the final point with Jane Koh hitting the game buzzer.
Red Sevens would like to take this opportunity to thank Dye Asia for their staunch support and their never dying trust in the team since 2010.
