Lost Tribe Instant Classics: White Mamba vs. Diversity RL

Lost Tribe wrapped up Israeli Independence Week with an electric Rocket League Duos tournament that came down to the wire. On April 18, Lost Tribe hosted the first ever skill-based Rocket League tournament for Jewish teens, with a platinum-and-below event for lower ranked players to show off their skills.

Team White Mamba, comprised of Lost Tribe legend, Matthew Shaw, and his cousin, Drew, swept their first-round best-of-five series, 3-0, and never looked back. A 3-1 victory in the next round earned them a trip to the semi-finals, where they faced Sinister Tadpoles, their toughest opponent yet. The series went to five games, and after three consecutive one-goal games, White Mamba emerged victorious with a 3-2 OT win and punched their ticket to the grand final.

Their finals opponent, Diversity RL, including Lost Tribe members Mr. Moose & Jsnahum, had a perfect 9-0 record entering the finals after sweeping through the first three rounds. Diversity RL picked up right where they left off and took a commanding 2-0 series lead. After a nail-biting, three-minute overtime, White Mamba stayed alive with yet another OT victory, winning 4-3. However, it was not enough, as Diversity RL had their sights set on a championship and never looked back. In Game Four they dominated on the offensive end and sealed the championship with a 5-2 victory, capturing their first Lost Tribe tournament win.  

Lost Tribe will continue to offer Rocket League events to Jewish teens in May with a 3v3 tournament on Sunday May 9, and two 2v2 tournaments on Sunday, May 30.
