Bonus Balls Tournament

Max'd Kidz made the long drive to Valencia/Castaic to play in the RPL affiliate event - Bonus Balls at Warped Paintball Park.

Outcome - 1st Place - which won the team free entry to the RPL Event #4 in Reno, Nevada.

The team played really well, going undefeated and taking the #1 seed into the playoffs. They rolled through the quarters and semis pretty easily and then faced a tough Critical Kids team in the Finals. The tourney ended up being decided by a One on One. Team Captain Brandon Teunissen pulled out the overtime win by winning the One on One.
