PSG wins SPNS Leg 2!!!
Singapore (23 June 2004) - PSG Warfreakz, a group of Filipino
expatriates walked away with the champion medal for the
Singapore Paintball Novice Series (SPNS) 2008 Leg 2, which was
held in Red Dynasty Paintball Park. A well deserved champion
indeed where they have to battle 10 games before reaching the
finals. The morning event was greeted by a mild rain that was
lurking around the night before, however this did not dampen the
mood of the participants as they have long anticipated for the
home coming of SPNS Leg 2. After months of training, it is
finally the day where they put their practices to the test. A
double fold increase from SPNS Leg 1, SPNS Leg 2 welcomed the
participation of 15 paintball teams. New to the competition were
Carnage, PSG Bravo, PSG Charlie, Wargh! Birds, Red Shadows,
Shinpu, Kamikaze and 20th Legion.
New to SPNS Leg 2 is the collaboration between Paintball
Association (Singapore) PBAS and the Malaysian Marshals (MMs).
This collaboration has indeed raised the standard of officiating
in SPNS and provides an opportunity for Singapore Marshals to
learn a thing or two from our neighbours. The introduction of
PSG Charlie, an all female team from the Philippines, has
certainly raised the public's eyebrow on their misconception of
the paintball being a male dominant sport.
As the rain subsided, the wet ground becomes the perfect
playground for paintball as participants slide their way through
the muddy soil with most players perfecting the ideal paintball
movement of sliding and dodging. After 8 gruelling qualification
games, the top 8 teams can advanced into the 2nd round. Among
the 8 newly established teams, 5 teams qualified for the 2nd
round with PSG Warfreakz, which was the eventual champion, White
Death and Death Mavericks. A well deserving note to Carnage
which only lost 1 game during the qualification rounds and
emerged as the chart leader.
As the competition rolled on, PSG Warfreakz clinched the
Champion Title of SPNS Leg 2 by beating Red Shadows, who had to
settle for the 2nd spot. At 3rd position was White Death.
The icing of the cake was given to Thomas Lee, a SIM 2nd year
student who was awarded the Most Valuable Player (MVP) for SPNS
Leg 2. The winner of the MVP award was selected through peer
nomination from opposing teams.
SPNS Leg 2 concluded with an exciting exhibition match between
Carnage and Red Shadows. During the process of the competition,
footages of the match was captured by reporter from the Channel
News Asia and photographed by representatives from The Straits
Times. Talk about media coverage...
SPNS Leg 3 will be held on 12 October as "The Final Showdown"...
