Predators Attack Ususpecting Paintballers

Orignally published on 68Caliber.com September 12, 2010

The Mersey Road Predators were on the attack during event three of the Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League (ATWL) event at Mersey Road Paintball on August 28th, 2010.

The Predators were confident that they would be able to catch the current point leaders and defending champions Mersey Road Mercenaries, as well as second place Team Anthraxx, both of whom they trailed by only a small margin. Iron Legion trailed the Predators by an equally small margin, making every game count. The Predators entered the competition confident that they would be able to catch and move ahead of the leaders.

“There are some great teams in the league this year” said Predator player and field owner Jim Langlois “We will need to play our best paintball today if we want a chance to win the title.”

The Predators played aggressive, heads up paintball all day, but were unable to close, frustrated by a two point gap.

The Mercenaries and Team Anthraxx also maintained their slim lead in the standings, ahead of the young Iron Legion team who are now within four points of the lead. The Iron Legion finished the day strong and managed to close the gap, to end the day tied with the Predators.

The Mersey Road Mercenaries maintained their league leading position in their quest for a championship three-peat.

Kevin Whynot, the Mercenaries Team Captain, was impressed with the competition. “We hoped to extend our lead heading into the last event of the season” Whynot said, “Everyone else brought their A game today and things have really tightened up in the standings.”

The points are so close in the standings that all four teams – Mercenaries, Anthraxx, Predators & Iron Legion – have a chance to win. Everything will come down to the final event before a champion can be declared..

The Halifax Maniacs have unfortunately been statistically eliminated from contention, though they can still act the spoiler and are in the enviable position of being able to deny the contenders the championship.

The Standings After Event 3
20 pts Mersey Road Mercenaries
18 pts Anthraxx
16 pts Mersey Road
16 pts Iron Legion
2 pts Halifax Maniacs
