Default fire warrior close combat crazy!

So, I was at my local Hobby Store(Hobbytown USA) and we were playing a tournament. there were about 10 of us. We were using 1000pt army lists. The armys were as follows: Orks, Orks, Necrons, Tau, Imperial Gaurd, Space Marines, Deamons, Eldar, Chaos, and I was playing my Tau. I won my first 2 games, and my third game I played againts another Tau player. This is were the impossible took place. The game was Take and Hold. ( dont worry, this isnt a battle report ) enyways, on the last turn, I controlled one objective and he controlled 2. However, my firewarriors were only about 10 inch away from one of his objectives, which he held with 4 battlesuits and 7 kroot. so, I moved my fire warriors 6 inch, then ran them which moved them another 6 inch away. Now i contested the objective. So my opponent(Forgot his name) blasted me with all his guns. I got lucky and made most of my saves. 7 fire warriors remaining. So, He charged my with his battlesuits. He attacked and I made every single save. Then I retaliated, With 7 Fire warriors I made 5 wounds, 4 of which he failed. This forced a moral check, which he promptly failed. We rolled to see if i could have a sweeping advance, I rolled a higher Iniciative, so i cut down all his battlesuits. This allowed me to take the last objective and win the tournament. Yipee! I won 30$

Well fire warriors occasionally get lucky in close combat. Do not let this make you reckless with your fire warriors though. The opponent should have stayed contesting the objective and not have charged you there in which it. When you beat genestealers in close combat that is special.

It would seem the OP did exactly what he should have: sent his suits to deal with contesting FW (leaving the kroot to hold objective), rather than give them a chance to rapid fire. It's just amazing luck the suits were beat. With them out of the way, our hero probably moved his remaining FW close enough to the objective, then rapid fired the kroot into oblivion.

The fun of dice games is that luck can make or break you.
