G2 defeat Immortals in Cologne
G2 Esports have gone 2-1 in the Swiss stage of ESL One Cologne after defeating Immortals 16-7 on Cobblestone.
Starting out on the CT side, Immortals picked up the pistol round and the following anti-eco, with G2 hitting back with a third-round buy. That was the start of a great run from the Frenchmen, who won six of the following seven rounds to cruise to a 7-3 lead. Immortals then picked up two rounds in a row, forcing Richard "shox" Papillon to call a timeout to halt the Brazilians' momentum.
After the short break, G2 won an unexpected eco round thanks to Kenny "kennyS" Schrub finding an early pick, which gave him the AWP with which he picked up three more kills. That round propelled G2 into another great run that saw them finish the half on 10 rounds.
The second half began with G2 securing the pistol round, in which shox denied Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe the 1v3 clutch. Immortals traded that round back following a flawless force buy, but they were unable to follow it up as they got shut down by kennyS, who picked up four kills with a Desert Eagle.
The French team gave Immortals very little room to operate in the next rounds and quickly clinched the match to enter the pool of teams with a 2-1 record.
