North defeat mousesports in overtime
North are the first team to enter the 2-1 pool of teams after moving past mousesports 19-15 on Cobblestone.
The match began with a fast A execution from mousesports, with Denis "denis" Howell clutching a 1v2 after a series of trades inside the site. After winning both anti-ecos by the skin of their teeth, the European mixture lost control of the game as North picked up four of the next five rounds.
mousesports's offense then woke up as they strung three rounds together to secure a 7-4 lead, but North tightened up their defense and picked up the final four rounds of the half.
The early stages of the second half were played at a frantic pace as the teams cancelled each other team in eco rounds after the pistol round had gone North's way. Finally, the Danish team got a grip on the game, with the scoreline blooming to a 12-8 advantage for them.
With little room for mistake, Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný and Robin "ropz" Kool stepped up to the plate, inspiring mousesports to pick up six rounds in a row. The European mixture's defense then finally cracked, with Philip "aizy" Aistrup getting four kills to his name in a B execution, but the Danes could not follow it up and allowed their opponents to hit match point.
An all-out force buy from North wreaked havoc in mousesports' defense and took the game to the 30th round, in which the Danes would come out victorious with another B execution to tie up the score at 15-15. Carrying their momentum into overtime, North took all three rounds on the Terrorist side before sealing the deal with one more round as CT.
