PENTA beat Vega Squadron; qualify for PGL Major
PENTA are the third team to have qualified for PGL Major Krakow after defeating Vega Squadron 16-8 on Train.
The first match of the day in Bucharest began at a frantic pace, with rounds going back and forth as the teams kept cancelling each other out, keeping their opponent from stringing rounds together and getting any sort of money control.
With the scoreline 5-4 in PENTA's favour, the European mixture managed to take control of the game with a series of fast executions. With their economy in the shambles, Vega Squadron were unable to find a way back into the game, with the half ending in a dominant 11-4 scoreline.
PENTA carried their momentum into the second half and won the first four rounds on the CT side to reach match point. That was when Vega Squadron's offence finally came to life, with the Russian team stringing some rounds together before Kevin "HS" Tarn wrapped things up with a quad kill in an eco round, earning his team a ticket to the next Major.
