This past weekend at the Chicago NXL, Tampa Bay Damage emerged victorious in all of their matches in the highly competitive Pro division. Despite missing star player Chad Busiere from their previous tournament, they managed to overcome muddy conditions and secure first place once again. Houston Heat and Dynasty finished second and third respectively in this event, but both still hold higher rankings overall for the season.
In the Semi-Pro division, Paintball Fit continued their unbeatable streak with yet another first-place finish – making it their fourth consecutive win and seventh straight podium placement. The Blast Camp also made a strong showing by taking second place for the fourth event in a row, but they have only lost to PBFit throughout this impressive run. Noobies, currently ranked third overall, finished in third place at this particular tournament.
Last year’s WNXL champions, The Heroines, showcased their dominance once again by claiming victory for the second time in a row. They are now tied with another team, Destiny, who also took first place at this event. Interestingly enough, The Cheetahs – who had finished in last place during last year’s championship season – surprised everyone with their impressive second-place finish in this event.
In Division Two, Shut Up We’re Trying from Paintball Fit finally claimed their long-awaited win after finishing on the podium for the past three events this season. The New York Wrecking Crew and Noobies finished in second and third places respectively at this tournament, but both still rank lower than Shut Up We’re Trying overall for the season.
