HR squeeze out NiP in OT
HellRaisers have taken down NiP in their 1W-0L matchup at the Major Qualifier, 19-17 on Overpass.
HellRaisers took the initial charge on CT side of Overpas with Bence "DeadFox" Böröcz delivering a spectacular USP quad kill with a two-man disadvantage, vindicating the European team to take a 5-1 lead. However, the Ninjas quickly came back with some bomb plant money to counter-reset the CT's and could equalise the score in round 10.
Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow and his men brought back a round, but the reset came in effect again, as Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund got a blazing fast double entry on to the B-site from short, the economy in full control for the T's. HellRaisers got inventive with a fast aggro push in the last round with their upgraded pistols, pulling it back for 7-8 scoreline.
HellRaisers showed remarkable composure
HellRaisers got the ground running for them to bring three of their own rounds and were so close to break the Swedes' bank with a sneaky last second double rotate to have a 4v3 post-plant situation, but the Ninjas claimed the round back to lead 14-10, and though the following close quarters engagement on A went the way of HellRaisers to put the Swedes on eco, Richard "Xizt" Landström's team moved to match point swiftly.
Backs against the wall the overall strong performing DeadFox clutched out a hairy 1v2 to take another solid quad kill, so it all came down to the 30th round, which was another close round, but the European mixture came out on top to take the map into overtime.
HellRaisers continued to run their T-side efficiently, but Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg took back the lead 17-16 with a next-level play for a 1v2 retake as he lined up the defending T's for a collateral at water with an AWP. It went to another matchpoint/overtime situation as the Swedish economy was in the dumpster and HellRaisers closed the game out 19-17.
