Immortals see off MVP
Immortals remain in the race for a playoff spot at the SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 event after defeating MVP Project 16-9 on Inferno.
The match began with Immortals finding a way towards A from halls thanks to a pair of kills from Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles but failing to control the site as Hyun-Pyo "XigN" Lee picked up three frags during the retake.
After planting the bomb in the second round, the Brazilians went for a third-round buy, only to get denied by XigN, who clutched a 1v2 situation. The Brazilians' force buy in the following round did not bear fruits either, which set them back even further as MVP strolled to a 5-0 lead.
With the game threatening to spiral out of control, Lucas "steel" Lopes went huge and opened up the MVP defence with three entry frags in A. In the following round, it was Lincoln "fnx" Lau's time to shine as the 27-year-old won a 1vs3 clutch with the bomb planted when a hard reset seemed to be coming his team's way.
Immortals are now 2-2 in Kiev
Immortals put together a small run of rounds and equalised the game at 5-5. MVP then won a round after denying Immortals' A split, but the Brazilians fought back immediately after and took nine rounds into the second half.
Now playing on the Terrorist side, MVP won the pistol round and the corresponding anti-ecos to restore parity at 9-9. But once Immortals got money in the bank they were simply far too strong for their opponents to handle, winning seven rounds in a row to secure convincing a 16-9 victory.
PotM: Lincoln "fnx" Lau gets the award not only for leading the stats table but also for winning the key 1v3 clutch in the first half which prevented an economic reset for his team.
