Cloud9 to Major Qualifier over CLG
Cloud9 have made it to the PGL Major's Main Qualifier after defeating CLG 2-0 (Inferno 16-12, Cache 16-8) in the consolidation final of the Americas Minor.
The series for a spot at the PGL Major's Main Qualifier began on Inferno, where Cloud9 got off to a flying start, picking up a 6-1 lead on the offense.
CLG started clawing their way back into the half with some of their players putting up great individual plays in pivotal rounds, such as Stephen "reltuC" Cutler's quad-kill from pit, and another from Kenneth "koosta" Suen on B, which helped their team secure an 8-7 scoreline.
After reltuC got three kills in the next pistol, CLG picked up three more rounds before Cloud9 evened it out with relative ease. Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert's team continued to defend well, only conceding one more round as they headed into map two with a 16-12 victory on their pick.
Cloud9 once again got off to a successful start on Cache, this time as CT, dropping just one round in the first 10 with Jake "Stewie2K" Yip playing an important part due to several individual plays. However, CLG made a match of it, picking up the last five rounds, abusing the B bombsite over and over.
Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham was the man of the hour in the next pistol round, clutching a 1v4 afterplant situation from A main, putting his team at 12-6. reltuC's quick triple in checkers then allowed CLG to pick up two rounds in a row, but Cloud9 didn't leave any more room for their opponents to come back into the match, securing the last four rounds for 16-8, 2-0.
