Malaysia Paintball Official Circuit 2011 Leg 3 Sultan of Kedah
Cup - 5 & 6 March 2011
7 & 8 May 2011 - Red Sevens sent 2 teams, one in Division 2 and
the other in Division 3, to MPOC Leg 2 as they had previously
done in MPOC Leg 1. Both teams were aiming to put up a good
fight in the 3rd leg of MPOC, Sultan of Kedah Cup.
A total of 11 players from the Red Sevens travelled to Kedah,
Malaysia on 7 - 8 May 2011 to participate in the Kedah Sultan
Cup 2011. Forming a team each in Division 2 and Division 3, the
Singapore team was joined by another local paintball team, Team
Ragdoll which partake in the Division 4 category. The grilling
heat of Kedah took the stress out of everyone participating in
this leg of the MPOC, at one time the temperature was reported
to be 38 Degree Celsius, good enough to turn any paintballer
into a marshmallow. Division 2 tournament saw the participation
of 11 teams and the "triangle" love affair which I used to
describe the intensity of the Division 2 games surfaced again.
The "triangle" love affair refers to the closely fought games
between teams where everyone took a point out of their opponent
and ended up on a level fighting ground after numerous rounds of
evenly fought matches.
This leg of the tournament saw the inclusion of 2 former Reds,
Zach and Ivan who both returned from US and Canada respectively
to spend their summer holidays in Singapore. Indeed there was
much needed speed and aggression that was added to the forwards.
In the end, it was Killer Bees who took the Champion spot in the
Division 2. Red Sevens Division 2 team managed to secure the 1st
Runner Up position and managed to add some points into their bag
thus opening the race for the Overall Series Champion.
In Division 3, Red Sevens II had to bow out to an early exit in
the Quarter Finals after some technical errors which could be
avoided. The team had a slow start losing a couple of early
games but came back with a 6 games winning streak to qualify for
Day 2. Jose Cerda a former player from the Outlaws was included
into the team as a guest player and stood his ground to give the
added power at the back and filling the front in his usual snake
position. Ragdolls did well in Division 4 and gathered game
experiences into every round of the tournament. They were joined
by Ikanman, our old friend from Downunder and Dave Choy aka
Pagan, the half Singaporean Hawaiian.
The Red Sevens would like to make a special thank you goes out
to Team Macdev Ronin, X-Fox, Paul Lam and Catherine Chew from X-Tioneers for helping in the coaching and sharing their
Thanks to all our Division 3 players and the other Division 2
players that were waiting in the staging area for their turn,
and end up helping crew for the team.
Red Sevens would also like to thank the MPOC organisers for
their wonderful organisation of the event in Kedah especially
the prize-giving by Her Royal Highness and the official dinner
at the hotel. A huge thank you to the excellent refereeing by
Junaidi and his team of Malaysian Marshals despite the killer
heat (36 degC?).
