Perfect weather and 86 players in attendance made for a great Kelly's Hero's rematch. Threw a couple of twists into this game where each American army group (Odd Ball and Kelly) was running all over the field trying to locate 16 different boxes with clues and hardware needed to make the howitzers go "BANG".
There were some impressive fire fights between Americans when they started criss-crossing the city looking for ammo cans!! The Americans had a rough time during the first battle, securing only 7 of the 16 boxes. This left them with a lot to accomplish during the second phase, but they did quite well. Captured the remaining 9 boxes, nuked the town with the howitzers and captured 2 of the 4 flags surrounding the town. There was a point in time when the Americans could have captured the final two flags and taken the Bank, when they had eliminated all but 2-3 Krauts. One American saw the 2nd flag drop and said to the 15+ guys with him, "the flag is down...lets head for the Reichstag" and everyone took off like a shot. Problem was, the Americans still had 2 flags to drop, and they were supposed to capture the Bank.....not the Stag. A few seconds later, a respawn rocket went up and when the Americans realized their mistake and returned to the Bank....35 Krauts were there waiting for them.
So victory to the Germans...but it was a GREAT game regardless. IF YOU CAN'T MAKE THE JUNE IRISH/BRITISH CONFLICT, MAKE SURE YOU ATTEND THE 3RD ANNIVERSARY GAME JULY 12TH. WE HAVE AN ITALIAN CHEF COOKING FOR THE PIG ROAST AND THE FOOD WILL BE GREAT!!!!!
