NiP ease past G2 in Cologne
Ninjas in Pyjamas have picked up their second victory at ESL One Cologne following a comprehensive 16-6 victory over G2 on Cache.
The final match of the day began with a successful A execution from G2 in the pistol round, with Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt getting four kills to his name. A quad kill from William "draken" Sundin in the first gun round set NiP up for a great run: unable to string rounds together, the French team lost control of the game, allowing the Swedes to win the final seven rounds of the half and secure a convincing 10-5 lead.
NiP piled more misery on G2 with a near-flawless pistol round in which they planted the bomb with a three-man advantage. After losing both eco rounds, G2 picked up the first full gun round of the half, but NiP rallied back after overturning a 3v5 situation.
The money reset left the Frenchmen in complete disarray. With the economical and psychological advantage, NiP quickly wrapped things up, clinching the match with back-to-back fast executions to which G2 could find no response.
