Esports renews winning streak

Over the weekend, the University of Montevallo Overwatch team played Clayton State University on Friday, Oct. 17, and the University of North Georgia on Oct. 18. The results of the Friday game came out to be 2-0 Montevallo. On Sunday, North Georgia had to forfeit the game. 

Each match was a best out of three series. The first team to win two games won the match.  

Friday’s game came after the recent loss against Henderson State University.  

Montevallo convincingly beat Clayton State in a shutout, and had one of the quickest games the team has had this year. The win restarted the team’s win streak after their loss the previous weekend.  

Ethan “Radical Rev” Baggett, the Overwatch team captain, said, “We were disappointed when North Georgia had to forfeit, but we might see them in the playoffs.”  

He continued, “There isn’t much to say about this past weekend since [it] was a complete shutout, and the other was a forfeit win.” 

Baggett commented on the team’s performance. 

“I’m really proud of our team this year. The amount of focus each day of practice and the willingness to learn and improve has served us really well.”  

The next match will be against USC Aiken, Oct 24. Baggett expects the match to go smoothly for the team.
