G2 to Pro League playoffs over OpTic
G2 have booked their spot in the last-four stage at the ESL Pro League Season 3 finals after beating OpTic Gaming 16-7 on Cobblestone.
Starting out on the Terrorist side of the map, OpTic started off the game with a 3-0 lead after taking the pistol round thanks to a double entry frag from William "RUSH" Wierzba inside B. When G2 bought up, however, the impetus of the game changed drastically as they won eight of the following rounds to bring the scoreline to 8-4 in their favor.
OpTic then picked up back-to-back rounds following two B pushes, the second of which saw Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz bag four kills, but G2 held strong and stopped an A split in the final round to take a 9-6 half-time lead.
G2 through to the Pro League playoffs
G2 further grew their lead by winning the pistol round as Terrorist with a B push, with Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux getting three kills to his name. With a crushing economy control, the Frenchmen continuously kept OpTic's defense in check and reached match point without dropping a single round.
The Canadian team then finally managed to hold back their European counterparts, but it was too little, too late as Richard "shox" Papillon's men hit back right after to seal a spot in the last-four stage of the tournament.
