On August 25th, 2002, Extreme Paintball held the first ever Lake Superior Cup at Extreme Paintball at

Spirit Mountain.  Teams came from all parts of Minnesota & Wisconsin to participate in the 3-player

tournament.  All games were played on a single air-ball field with reffing provided by Team Firepower.

Points were accumulated as follows:  15 pts./elim, 15 pts/1st flag pull & 40 pts for a hang.  For each

player eliminated on your team, you lost 3 pts.  100 pts were the maximum for a single game.  Each

team played a round-robin in their respective division with the top 4 teams moving on to the semi's.

Preliminary scores were as follows:

The preliminaries ran quickly and fairly smooth.  The Hazmat teams played very strong based on their

1st and 2nd place preliminary placings.  Aggressive teams were rewarded with the 15 point first flag pull

which would prove crucial for semi-final placement and advancement.  In one of the highlights of the day,

Munster from team Win Inc., pulled off a 'dead-man's walk' for a victory over Team Extreme.  This would

prove critical for Win Inc., as it advanced them into the final position for the semi-finals.  In somewhat of  

a surprise, none of the three local teams moved on to the semi-finals with Indecision just missing the cut

coming in at 9th place.  Semi-final scores were as follows:

With the top 2 teams from each semi-final bracket moving to the finals, every game proved to be vital.

Hazmat Extreme and Win Inc. secured the top 2 positions for the finals.  The third and fourth position

were each left with ties with required 2 tie-breaking games.  The battle for the third position was won by

the team from Grand Rapids, Full Throttle.  They beat the Kickers in the first tie-breaker.  The tie-breaker

for the final position was played between Torment/Synergy and Hazmat with Torment/Synergy coming

out on top.  With the finals now set, the remaining four teams played out the final round-robin.  The finals

results were as follows:

The highlights of the finals came down to the final two games.  With all placings up in the air after the

first four games, the results were determined in the final two games.  With Torment/Synergy maxing

their last game over Full Throttle, Win Inc. now had their destiny in their own hands.  They had to have

a perfect game over Hazmat Extreme to secure first.  Hazmat Extreme also had a lot up for grabs in the

final game.  Sitting in last place after two of three rounds, 2nd place was amazingly still within reach

with a win in the last game.  After the dust settled in the last game, Hazmat Extreme came out on top

with a 100-0 max to secure 2nd place.

Extreme Paintball at Spirit Mountain was very happy with the positive feedback from their first tourney

and is looking forward to putting on a bigger and better tournament in 2003.  They would not have been

able to put on such a tourney if it wasn't for sponsors such as Coca-Cola.  Extreme Paintball would once

again like to publicly thank them for their generous support.  Of course none of this would have been

possible if it wasn't for the teams that attended and played with good sportsmanship.  Thanks again

and we will see you at next years events.
