Liquid ease past CLG
Liquid keep their hopes of reaching the MLG X Games Aspen semi-finals alive after a 16-5 rout of CLG on de_cache.
Starting off on the Terrorist side, CLG went for a textbook A push in the pistol round, only to be completely slaughtered by Liquid, who defended the site flawlessly, with Nick "nitr0" Cannella getting four kills to his name.
Despite getting a couple of great kills on eco, CLG still found themselves down 0-3 going into their first gun round, in which they decided again to rush A, once again with no success as they were obliterated by Jacob "FugLy" Medina and nitr0.
Liquid continued on a roll here and eventually took the score to 11-0 as CLG's efforts were simply in vain. Tarik "tarik" Celik's side then finally managed to get their first round of the game, but it did little in the way of troubling the former Denial side, who were up 14-1 at the break.
nitr0 led the scoreboard for Liquid
Things went from bad to worse for CLG at the start of the second half, as Liquid won the pistol round with ease following a mid push. With 13 match points in their hand, it was surprising to see Eric "adreN" Hoag's side take some time to seal the deal, but in the end Liquid ran out 16-5 winners in this one-sided contest.
