mousesports ease past Spirit
mousesports have picked up their first victory at the ELEAGUE Major qualifier after beating Team Spirit 16-5 on Dust2.
The match began with Spirit going for a long execute in the pistol round. The Russian team planted the bomb in a 4v4 situation but could not hold the site, with Chris "chrisJ" de Jong picking up a trio of kills with just 2hp.
A third-round buy from Spirit failed to pay dividends, putting their economy in a dire situation. mousesports continued amassing rounds and building up their bank, with the scoreline blooming to a 6-0 advantage in their favour. Spirit then picked up three rounds in a row, but mousesports kept their composure and limited their opponents to just four rounds by the end of the half.
mousesports are now 1-1 in the qualifier
Spirit found a lifeline by winning the pistol round on the CT side, but mousesports hit back in the following round. The European mixture refused to take their foot off the pedal and locked down the map, 16-5, to pick up their first victory in Atlanta.
