Liquid advance to semis over fnatic
Liquid have defeated fnatic 16-12 in the Dust2 rematch to become the third team in ESL One New York semi-finals.
Starting as Terrorists, Liquid went on a rampage at the beginning, grabbing the pistol round as well as the first two gunrounds for a quick 7-0 start. Their fake attempt ended up being too slow and it backfired, as fnatic got on the board and piled up another round on the back of Simon "twist" Eliasson's triple on long.
The American-Danish squad extended their lead to 10-2 upon Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski and Spencer "Hiko" Martin putting up fantastic single-handed quad-kills, with the latter being in a 2v5 situation that came down to a last-second bomb plant.
ELiGE led the charge as Liquid advanced to semis after the fnatic rematch
fnatic only managed to secure one more round before the half ended at 12-3 and dropped the pistol as well following Josh "jdm64" Marzano defusing the bomb in a 1v1 situation. twist saved the day for the time being afterwards, winning a 1v3 afterplant with a scout from the pit area for an eventual 13-6.
After losing two more rounds, EliGE and Hiko shut down the A execute for their 14th round, but it wasn't enough to get them to match point just yet as their economy got reset right afterwards. However, two saved weapons were enough to reach 15 as fnatic ran into them on the B bombsite.
