Liquid ease past G2 in New York
Team Liquid are now 1-1 at ESL One New York after defeating G2 Esports 16-7 on Train.
Starting out on the CT side of the map, Liquid got out to a quick 3-0 lead following some very clean first rounds. After getting their economy in order, G2 were able to get the first full gun round, courtesy of a trio of entry kills from Cédric "RpK" Guipouy inside B, but they were unable to follow it up, which cost them dearly.
G2 opted to play slowly and wait for picks before pushing the bombsites, but with Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski and Josh "jdm64" Marzano in stunning form, the Frenchmen only managed to scrape two rounds before the end of the half.
Liquid bounce back from Na`Vi defeat
The French team found a lifeline in the second half as they won five rounds in a row to keep themselves in the game. But once Liquid found their feet there was no stopping them as they did not take their foot off the pedal before getting their 16th round on the board, securing their first victory in New York.
