mousesports beat PENTA; qualify for Major
mousesports win a 30 round nail biter on Cobblestone against PENTA to become the first team to qualify for the PGL Major in Krakow.
The match started with PENTA taking the early lead after winning the pistol round on the terrorist side and following it up with the two anti-ecos. PENTA played fast explosive CS that mousesports couldn’t stop, and the former won the first gun round, and further increased their lead to 5-0 after winning another anti-eco. PENTA didn’t give mousesports a breath, playing aggressively and winning the trade duels, with Paweł "innocent" Mocek getting several multi-kill rounds in the early match.
With mousesports unable to build an economy, Chris "chrisJ" de Jong and company called two timeouts before the tenth round to try and find a solution to PENTA’s steamrolling, as the latter took the first nine rounds of the match. Finally, mousesports got on the board thanks to a big round by Denis "denis" Howell, who got a triple in mid and stopped PENTA on their tracks. After getting on the board mousesports were able to salvage the half winning every round up to the half.
After exploding onto B, mousesports won the trades and planted the bomb, closing the round out by taking all the CTs out. After mouz winning the anti-ecos, the match was tied, 9-9. Both teams traded rounds, but it was then mousesports that started to get momentum, especially with an incredibly strong Robin "ropz" Kool dismantling PENTA’s defenses, despite Kevin "HS" Tarn’s several multi-kill rounds.
PENTA then started winning some rounds, taking the lead back, 13-12, and putting mousesports in economic trouble, but mouz won an eco on A to bring it back even going into the last stretch of the match. Finally, it was the more experienced mousesports, playing on the attacking side, that were able to close it out on the last round, 16-14.
