Virtus.pro take down fnatic in Krakow
Virtus.pro went 2-0 up on their home soil, defeating fnatic 16-11 on Cache.
Virtus.pro's second round force buy got the Poles rolling on Cache, as fnatic's A site push was put to a stop by pistols. After going 5-1 up, Virtus.pro were 1v3'd by Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson, who found great timing on Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas to get another round on the board for his team.
Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski made a flashy 4K defending B with an AWP, shutting down a fast B play, and Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski picked up a hat-trick in a similar fashion in the following round as Virtus.pro went 11-3 up.
Dennis "dennis" Edman's triple on the B site solo hold was what got fnatic a foothold back into the match, as the Swedish side was allowed to bring back a couple of rounds, starting with the following anti-eco's.
TaZ picked up a double entry in the first gun round, but a misplay while planting opened up the round for fnatic to retake the A site and secure a crucial round. That round allowed fnatic to bounce back after Virtus.pro snuck into the B storage room and took the site by storm, and the Swedes continued their CT side run.
fnatic got the score to just a two round difference, when Filip "NEO" Kubski and Paweł "byali" Bieliński picked up two kills each to get to 14 rounds, and the Poles closed out the following two against broken buy fnatic to win the game 16-11.
