Valkyrie Hardpoint kicked off the series, with the two teams trading blows early, but it was Rise Nation that took control down the stretch to draw first blood with a 250-190 win. London Docks Search and Destroy was even more convincing, a 6-3 win for Rise leaving Red Reserve looking for a reverse sweep.

Here, Red’s Joseph ‘Joee’ Pinnington came through with a massive play, flanking to pull the flag early and winning a crucial fight to escape, running it home for an incredible fast capture time that Red defended in the final round to take the game 3-2.

Unfortunately for Red, that was the only ground that Rise would concede in this match, coming back with a vengeance on Gibraltar Hardpoint, a crushing 250-98 to close the series out 3-1.
