Liquid defeat G2 in London

Liquid beat G2 16-6 on Cobblestone, advancing to the Group A winners' match in ECS Season 1 Finals.

After Luminosity defeated NiP in the first match of Group A, Liquid and G2 faced off on Cobblestone with the Frenchmen on the CT-side. Richard "shox" Papillon & company secured the first three rounds of the half but failed to grab the fourth one as they couldn't defuse the bomb.

Liquid tied the game at 3-3 but could not take the lead as G2 replied]. The rest of the half was controlled by the North American team and they led 9-6 at halftime.


Hiko's team move on to the winners' match 

Nick "nitr0" Cannella got two opening kills to kick the second half off and Liquid extended their lead to 12-6 after winning the anti-eco rounds. Spencer "Hiko" Martin & company secured the first weapon round with ease and went on to win the map 16-6.
