IT RAINED AGAIN.....big surprise there, but 56 players still made for some great paintball. The Brits really had a hard time trying to handle the Irish. During the first game the Irish we very slow getting out of the starting blocks, but once they stopped the sneaking around and made it a stand-up fight, they captured and destroyed every British objective in just under 2 hours. The Brits were in a real hole for the second phase, needing to capture both Irish flags and keep both of theirs flying for the win. With about 30 minutes left in the 2 hour game, the Brits had both of their flags up, and they managed to take down the Irish forward flag, but the shamrocks regrouped and at games end they controlled all four positions.
One bright spot for the Brits - Kyle Balluch winning the Kamikaze Patch (the Battlefront Medal of Honor) for his efforts at rehanging the Brit flag and capturing the Irish forward flag. Details on the Commendations Page. Nice going Kyle! You've joined a very elite Battlefront group - only 8 of these have been awarded in the 3 years we have been open.
