Esports: PC’s Rainbow Six squad opens season with a win

Peninsula College’s esports team opened its fall 2020 season with a decisive, 2-0 win over Dawson Community College last week.

The Rainbow Six team of Mike Roggenbuck, Cameron Fouts, Chase Roberts, Devin Anderson and Connor West dropped only two of the 16 rounds to the Glendive, Mont., college to win 2-0.

“The team was on point on Monday (Sept. 21), especially considering how new they are as a unit,” Peninsula head coach Charlie Morrow said.

“I was so impressed with how quickly they were able to adapt to a competitive team environment. There were several moments where it was down to the wire and they proved they can handle that kind of stress.”

The match marked the kickoff for the fall 2020 season of National Junior College Athletic Association Esports play for the Pirates.

PC’s Rainbow Six team will compete each Monday while the college’s Super Smash Brothers Ultimate and Fortnite teams will also play weekly this fall.

Peninsula’s Overwatch, League of Legends and Rocket League teams will see action later in the school year.

Coach Morrow and her Pirates are primarily training from home, but competing together in the college’s esports arena, where they can social distance because of team sizes associated with NJCAAE matches.

Weekly opponents are announced on Sundays by the NJCAAE. Match details and Twitch viewing links can be found on the team’s web page at gopcpirates.com.
