CLG beat Immortals; to playoffs
CLG are through to the playoffs at the SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 finals after defeating Immortals 16-8 on Cache.
The match began with CLG taking the pistol round but failing to build on that as Immortals hit back on a force buy with a quad kill from Ricardo "boltz" Prass. The Brazilians put together a small run of rounds and jumped out to a 5-1 lead, but then Pujan "FNS" Mehta stepped up to the plate and picked up five kills over two rounds to help CLG to cut the distance to 3-5.
A triple kill from Lucas "steel" Lopes during a B push gave Immortals their sixth round of the game, but CLG tightened up their defence right after, winning five rounds in a row before the Brazilians collected the final round thanks to a trio of quick kills from boltz in a 2v3 after-plant.
CLG pass Immortals test
Kenneth "koosta" Suen went huge in the pistol round as Terrorist, picking up four headshots to give CLG their ninth round of the game. The North American AWPer carried that momentum going into the gun rounds, with CLG increasing their lead to 13-7.
Immortals called a tactical pause in a bid to discuss their issues but CLG kept up the pace, winning back-to-back rounds to hit match point. One round was all that Immortals could muster in the second half as CLG would eventually take the map at 16-8.
PotM: Ethan "Ethan" Arnold was once again the star of his team, with eight multikills and a 108 ADR to inspire CLG to book passage to the playoffs.
