– We had the best team. That’s why we won. Cheers” says Nicolai “torben iorden” Amorim in an interview after the finals.

Just around 3 am. between wednesday 12th and thursday 13th of April, we, fragsters, beat Singularity 2-1 in the finals of the Danish Championship. In the same manner as Denmark won The European Football Championship in 1992; not even qualified to begin with. The team had participated in every qualifier but never qualified until Team mYYway disbanded and we got their place in the tournament. Which we definitely proved us worthy of.

We started the day by playing the quarterfinals against FUAH and beat them 2-1:

  • Train 16 – 8
  • Nuke 9 – 16
  • Inferno 16 – 8

Next up is the semifinals against Tricked, whom we also beat 2-1:

    • Nuke 10 – 16
    • Overpass 16 – 14
    • Inferno 16 – 14

And last but not least, we beat Singularity i the finals also 2-1:

    • Nuke 10 – 16
    • Train 16 – 8
    • Inferno 16 – 6

Two plays from this match that CAN NOT go unseen is rtA’s double ace!! Watch it here:

 

Noone, not even ourselves, had expected or even seen it coming that we would win this. In the match against Tricked, when we were behind 11-1 (ended the half 12-3) I personally thought that that was it, the semifinals was as far as we could go and I was very proud of our boys getting this far. But the calls coming from Tricked every time they won a round, got 15 year old Martin “Stavn” Lund’s blood pumping faster and there was no way he was going to go down without a fight.
