Na`Vi defeat VP at ESL NY
Natus Vincere beat Virtus.pro 16-9 on Train to get their second win at ESL One New York, putting them only one win away from the playoffs.
The map veto resulted in the fourth Train of the tournament, with the Poles starting on the Counter-Terrorist side and getting an early 5-2 lead.
From that point onward the action was frenetic, with fast trade-frags, important clutches and weird duels taking place all over the map. The half ended 8-7 for Virtus.pro, but Natus Vincere were probably the ones happier with the score.
Natus Vincere had a lockdown CT side on Train
Virtus.pro lost the pistol round and tried to sneak in a mixed AK47-Deagle buy in the third round of the second half, but failed to make an impact with it and ultimately allowed Denis "seized" Kostin's team to build a strong economy on their CT side.
After a few rounds were traded, the economy game came into play, allowing the CIS side to rebuy while Filip "NEO" Kubski's side was forced to have a couple of eco rounds.
With a double-AWP setup on the B site, Natus Vincere got to 15-9 and closed out the map shortly after.
