Astralis defeat NRG; to CP final
Astralis are the second grand finalists of Counter Pit League Season 2 Final after defeating NRG convincingly 2-0 (de_dust2 16-3, de_train 16-9).
The second semi-final of Counter Pit League S2 Finals between Astralis and NRG was kicked off by Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen and Finn "karrigan" Andersen who picked up doubles in the pistol round as Counter-Terrorists on de_dust2.
The Danish powerhouse quickly got to a commanding 9-1 lead, as Fatih "gob b" Dayik's squad only managed to win the first gunround up until that point. A 1-on-2 clutch by Samuel "SileNt" Portillo gave them a second round in the half, but their economy got reset right afterwards.
Before the half ended NRG picked up one more for 3-12 in a quasi-buy B rush, however the second pistol round and all following forcebuys were won by Astralis, which gave them a convincing 16-3 victory.
Astralis defeat NRG with ease and advance to the grand final
Their economy got reset once Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth and René "cajunb" Borg picked up doubles in the following gunround, and they had to double eco and faced an 1-8 deficit. Two rounds in a row helped them gain some confidence, which the Danes destroyed with a quasi-buy victory thanks to brilliant play from dupreeh and cajunb.
That allowed Astralis to close out the remaining rounds of the half for another 12-3 halftime score, soon turned into 13-3 after the second pistol round. NRG replied in the following forcebuy however, as well as in the first gunround where Justin "just9n" Ortiz clutched a 1-on-2 with one HP remaining.
