Lyon.... Win In Mexico !!!
On May 4th and 5th, the RTWC tournament came to Leon, Mexico, hosting 18 teams from the open division and 21 teams of the rookie division.
The elimination round was played on Saturday giving each open division team 8 games and 7 for the rookie division, after the first day only one team was undefeated in the whole tournament.
Planet Eclipse sponsored team, Lyon, finish with 6 wins and 2 loses in the open division and the rookies finished with 5 wins and 2 loses. The top 3 teams of each bracket go to the next round, giving the opportunity to play the semi finals to 6 teams: Riot (undefeated), Jackal, White Tigers (Planet Eclipse Sponsored Team), Jack In The Box, Lyon and Sykaryos.
In the rookie division the teams that went to the semi finals were Sykarios, Lyon division JR, X7, Mad Dog, Acid Reaction and Sykarios Wannabe. The teams played a best out 3 and each winners moved onto the next round.
The match ups went this way: Lyon division vs Riot, White tigers vs Sykarios and Jackal vs Jack in the box. Team Lyon, White Tigers and Jackal all won so they moved on.
To see what two teams would go to the finals they all played each other and the 2 teams with the best record would move to the finals. Lyon won both games and Jackal beat White Tigers moving Lyon and Jackal to play for first and second.
Team Lyon came out hungry in the finals and won the match in just over a minute with all 5 players alive. In the rookie finals, Lyon Jr took home the first place finish too :-)
We would like to thank Planet Eclipse and Red Fox Paintball for their continued support!
From everyone at Planet Eclipse.... Well Done....
