Five on Five.  Down two caps to one.  551 to 966.

Ah...we kill a BB.  Make that 591 to 906.  A bit of breathing room.  But still bleeding on the caps.

Bleed up to 978...just 22 points to Red victory.  Down Three caps to One.  The darkest hour.

Another BB take down.  A bit more breathing room.  But the cap bleed is still bad for green.

Bleed to 966 again.  But we're taking one of those caps back.

Down goes the cruiser.  Whew!  Another moment to breath.  But still can't win the cap bleed, even if we take the cap.

We bleed to 940, but in the interim take the two red caps, effectively halting our bleed at 940, and now bleeding red.

Do we have the time?  Can Reds kill one of our ships FTW.  No...we get the DD.

And the red cap bleed gives us the flip with about 27 sec remaining

Truth to this post, well done op. Had a ranked battle last night myself that was fun. Me in my sinop and a Lyon (I think) facing a Belfast, surrey, flint, New Orleans and sinop. Knocked the surrey down to 1k health with a nice 25k salvo and friendly finishes him. Flint tries to smoke but with low health she takes a couple  overpens from me and sinks. New Orleans is near full health but broadside to me now and takes a couple cits and explodes from a dev strike. Now the Belfast emerges from smoke and is also low health, just takes one pen from the rear turrets and she’s gone. Now it’s just me and the Lyon against the sinop and I ran him FTW. Was an awesome ending to a game that looked hopeless

I’m glad I’m not the only one whose mind went immediately to Galaxy Quest.

Grrrr... Tiger.

Seminal moment...I was facing both their Belfast 43 and their DD in the cap I was securing.  All our other team were pushing other caps.  So I was all alone.  I felt the reds pretty much had me.   Belfast was smoked up and DD was spotting.  I was out of radar.  I had multiple torp threat vectors and (of course) no hydro.  But there was no choice, but to plow forward with a bit of WASD and react as best I could.  See the 675/966 moment in the pics. Then...a miracle.  Ise blind torped the smoke and got the Belfast (see 710/916 moment). I was like..OMG!!!!  If I could point to the one moment when my thought switched from "this is a long shot" to "we can win this", that was the moment.  

Note the Ise was also capping another cap some distance away...so it was able to cap and send those TBDs to assist me.  That was the game changer in those final minutes.

And Kudos tor our AZ.  Bottom tier and it topped out with very solid numbers in first position.  AZ was the BB responsible for the take down of the red BB when they were at 978.  The cascade was AZ gets the BB, Ise gets the CL, and Tiger gets the DD.

Sounds like he's one out of your court, Soshi - US T6 Standard BB (which California might as well be, main guns-wise) in Tier 8 MM who doesn't throw his hands up in despair when he sees the team list but just keeps on plugging.
