Snatch walk the Field
We are around about 3 rounds in to the event and some early leaders are already starting to show through on the scoreboard.
Division two is a two horse race between Team Kinetic and Snatch (pictured) with both teams on 6 game points each and 6 ED too.
Divisions Three and Four are playing together today and we have three teams in the running at the moment: Cool As Ice, London Hazard, Care Bears Bravo with Cool As Ice just in the lead.
The KotH Division is being dominated by Scraesdon Warriors at the moment, but its early days and anything can happen as the event progresses.

Battling the Elements
|It Just Wouldn't be Devon...|
...if it didn't rain! :)
The first of the day's Heavy Showers arrived over the fields of UCZ about a half hour ago and have churned up the field enough to give us a traditionally muddy day in Devon.
But blue skies are peaking through again now and the unsettled weather is due to blow over just after lunch. The NSPL marches on through it all.

The fourth round of game scores are now coming in which means we are almost half way through the first NSPL event of this year already!
In Division 2, Snatch are pulling away from the pack with four straight wins now beneath their belts.
In Division 3 and 4, London Hazard and Care Bears Bravo have put in a good morning performance with three wins each whereas Cool As Ice have lost one and have their fourth score to come in still.
The KotH teams seem to be really enjoying themselves, getting really stuck in to each other. Mindful Violence have pulled out some excellent results and are now snapping at the heals of Scraesdon Warriors.

Just in time for the afternoon session to begin, the sun is shining again over South Devon. Time for the teams to shake off that lunch-time lull and gear up for another session of quick games here at the first Round of the NSPL.
Stay tuned for all the results as the day moves towards its conclusion and the results begin to materialise.

Division 3 and 4 is making for a close group as we currently have three teams on 12 game points... Cool As Ice, London Hazard, and Care Bears Bravo. Its great to see newcomers London Hazard at the top of this group. Just behind those three we have UWE Underdogs on 11 game points. Its certainly making for a close, exciting division.
Division two is still looking like a Snatch are going to run away with it whilst the KotH division is seeing some changes as Mindful Violence win against Scraesdon Warriors to take the lead.

The expected high winds have arrived in abundance and games slowed down a little whilst the refs battle to keep the fields standing. Normal service will resume shortly! :)
Date: Sunday 8th March 2009 14:39
The final rounds of paintball are now being played at this, the first round of the NSPL 2009.
The KotH Division is now all done and Scraesdon Warriors have done enough to come out on top in the end with Mindful Violence in a close second.
All the final results will be posted up live as they come in, so check back shortly to see who the end-of-event scoreboard stands up.

Ref Head Cam
|The End of the Beginning|
The first round of the NSPLs tenth anniversary year has come to a close. Despite all that the elements could throw at us, everyone had a fantastic day and we all got to enjoy some great competition paintball.
Congratulations to all those teams taking home silverware today, in particular Snatch, Cool As Ice and Scraesdon Warriors for winning the Div 2, Div 3/4, and the KotH Division respectively.
The full results are now shown on this web page and will shortly be published on the forums. We also hope to bring you some Headcam footage from a Ref's POW, but the weather played havoc with the cameras, so we're not promising a Speilberg production with that one! See you all for the next one on April 5th at our popular Reading NSPL venue.
