Chicago Aftershock vs Hurricanes
Two of Planet Eclipse's top teams went head to head today for their first of four prelim games. In their race to 7, Chicago Aftershock and the Hurricanes battled it out in their fight to make the semifinals.
Aftershock started out strong with two points, but their momentum was challenged with 6 straight Hurricane wins. On the verge of defeat, Aftershock managed to pull it back together and almost tied up the score at 5 to 6 with 3 minutes left on the clock. Despite strong Aftershock team moral, the Hurricanes were the first to see 7.
Frank Connell of the Hurricanes stated, "The game was evenly matched. We controlled the snake side by eliminating the snake corner 70% of the time allowing Billy to work his magic in the snake" This was the first game Frank "The Tank" Connell has played with the Hurricanes. With his addition to the team, we can expect to see a lot from the Hurricanes at World Cup and the upcoming season.
After not winning a single game in Chicago, The Hurricanes rolled their guns, played good paintball, and showed their Planet Eclipse pride with a well earned win. Aftershock continues on to play the Naughty Dogs later today.
