North have secured their place in the DreamHack Open Montreal grand final after defeating Cloud9 2-0 (16-6 on Train and 16-11 on Cobblestone).
The second semi-final of the day kicked off on Train, Cloud9's map choice, with North picking up the Terrorist pistol round thanks to a flawless A execution. The Danes followed that up with slow-paced anti-ecos, and kept extending their lead with fast plays in the gun rounds, setting themselves up for an 8-0 lead.
Now as Counter-Terrorists, North secured yet another perfect pistol round. After winning the subsequent anti-ecos, the Danish squad increased their lead to 14-4. Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen's men still lost two more rounds, but they would easily close out the first map with a 16-6 score.
On Cobblestone, a clean quad-kill from Philip "aizy" Aistrup helped North to win the Counter-Terrorist pistol. In the first gun round, Timothy "autimatic" Ta found four frags to power Cloud9 to secure their first round.
The North American squad would then grab one more before North went on a massive run for an 8-2 lead. In the next round, RUSH clutched a 1v2 situation, but Cloud9 were not able to string any rounds together, and had to settle for just four rounds in the half.
After picking up the pistol round, their fourth in the series, the Danes easily brought their lead to 14-4. Cloud9 then kept themselves in the game by winning seven straight rounds, but North had their eyes set on the final and eventually locked down the map.
