SK edge out PENTA at the PGL Major
SK picked up a hard fought victory over PENTA, defeating the European side 16-13 on Inferno to get their first victory in Krakow.
Fernando "fer" Alvarenga's 3K on the B site defense in the pistol round set up SK for a great start on the CT side of Inferno. PENTA were close to bouncing straight back in the following round with a force-buy before Epitacio "TACO" de Melo closed the round with a triple-kill on the A site.
Round no. 6 was another scary one for SK as PENTA were encroaching the B site after some favorable trades, but João "felps" Vasconcellos who had just rotated over from A, picked up a triple kill to save the round for the Brazilians.
Kevin "HS" Tarn's triple kill unlocked the A bombsite, getting his team their first round to make it 10-1. The European side managed to build on from that, as Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend opened up on Marcelo "coldzera" David in the following round and PENTA secured a clean, five-man-alive round, and got to a five-round Terrorist half in the end.
SK punished PENTA's overagression in an anti-eco round, getting their first Terrorist round on the board, but a failed B site execute tipped the scales back into PENTA's favor and the European side soon tied the score at 11-11.
The Brazilians bounced back from a 13-11 deficit SK finally managed to string rounds together, starting with a force buy win. coldzera was the main man for SK in the last couple of rounds, picking up multifrags to help his team close out the last rounds and get the 16-13 win.
