Paintball Tournament

by Jake Peterson

The Liberty University paintball team hosted its first ever tournament on Saturday, finishing second of the 21-teams in the tournament.

Starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday, the Flames went 8-0 in the preliminary matches, earning a bye in the quarterfinals and an automatic berth in the semifinals. Liberty took two out of three matches in the semifinals to advance to the finals against Navy.

In the first game of the finals, the Flames took control of the match by winning the first game. Needing to win one more game for the title, a costly penalty enabled Navy to win the second game, tying the match at one game apiece with the third and final game set to begin. Unfortunately, the Flames lost the third game and the midshipmen took home the team title.

Other participating teams included Penn State, the University of Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and James Madison University.
