dignitas to GE Cup final over CLG
dignitas are through to the grand final of the Game Show Global eSports Cup after defeating CLG 2-0 (16-10 on de_overpass and 16-14 on de_cobblestone).
Overpass began with CLG, who started off on the Terrorist side, winning the pistol round following an A push, with Stephen "reltuC" Cutler defending the bomb with a well-placed molotov. The North Americans followed it up with the corresponding anti-ecos and managed to carry that momentum into the first gun round, which they won thanks to three crucial entry frags by Josh "jdm64" Marzano.
It was only when dignitas were down 0-5 that they finally managed to tighten up their defense, but they did so just in time to go on a massive run that saw them win nine of the next ten rounds to take a three-round lead into the break.
Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke went huge in the pistol round on the Terrorist side and won a 1vs3 clutch, which allowed dignitas to extend their lead to 12-6. The Danish team continued to press and brought the scoreline to 15-6, and even though CLG put together a small run of rounds, it just was not enough to scare the Danes, who ran out 16-10 victors.

Cobblestone was the map that followed, and here teams took turns stringing some rounds together as neither side could stamp their authority on the game. On two occasions, dignitas threatened to run away with the lead, but CLG kept crawling back into the game and managed to reduce the deficit to 7-8 at the end of the half.
In the second half, reltuC delivered the pistol round to CLG on a silver platter with four kills, but dignitas rallied back right after. The game then entered a chaotic period as teams traded round for round, with dignitas coming out on top and bringing the scoreline to 12-9. CLG managed to mount a comeback and tied the game at 14-14, forcing a timeout from dignitas, who would make one final push to win the last two rounds.
