Astralis over SK; to playoffs
After defeating SK 16-11 on Train, Astralis became another name locked in for the SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 Finals playoffs.
Astralis and SK began Train by exchanging the first six rounds evenly with the Brazilians getting a 3-0 lead after cleanly winning the pistol round as CT while Nicolai "device" Reedtz's side picked up the first two gunrounds.
From there on, the half was firmly in the hands of Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's squad, who got all of the remaining rounds for 10-5.
Astralis move on to quarter-finals
Astralis clinched the second pistol round with ease and soon made the score even again at 10-10, retaking a tight 2v2 on the A bombsite in the first gunround. SK then switched things up and went to B to get their first round as Terrorists on the board.
The Danes decimated SK's economy when Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth defended B on his own with four kills, giving Astralis a 13-11 lead. Once the next two rounds were exchanged once more, Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander and company had the economic advantage to finish off the match at 16-12.
