PENTA crush Liquid in the first match of the second round
PENTA beat Liquid without breaking a sweat, 16-3, on Mirage, to get within one win of a spot at the Major.
The match started with PENTA making their way to B, planting, and defending the bomb thanks to doubles by Paweł "innocent" Mocek and Kevin "HS" Tarn. The European team then went on to win the anti-ecos, but it wouldn’t stop there. PENTA abused Liquid, picking players off left and right with a particularly stellar duo of HS and Miikka "suNny" Kemppi leading the way, forcing the North American squad to take two timeouts before ten rounds were even played.
With 12-3 on the scoreboard, Liquid really needed to win the second pistol round, but HS with three USP headshots denied the North American side an A execute. From there on out it was smooth sailing for the European team, who went on to close out the match 16-3.
