North top ELEAGUE Group B over Immortals
North have secured a spot in the ELEAGUE Premier playoffs after defeating Immortals in overtime on Cobblestone.
Starting out on the Counter-Terrorist side, North won the pistol round and the subsequent anti-ecos to take a quick 3-0 lead. The Danes came close to winning the first gun round as well after finding two frags, but things quickly turned sour for them, and Ricardo "boltz" Prass ended up clutching a 1v2 situation.
Immortals went on to win the next two rounds, bringing the scoreline to 3-3. North then finally won a gun round, but they would soon be reset thanks to an ace from Lucas "steel" Lopes that included a 1v3 clutch. The Brazilian team remained in the driving seat for a while and enlarged their lead to 8-5 before North tightened up their defense to bring the deficit to a minimum before the break.
boltz came up huge in the pistol round as CT with three quick kills, but then Immortals were caught off-guard by North's force buy. That was the start of a great run from the Danish team, who would hit 14 rounds on the board before the Brazilians could take their first gun round of the half, courtesy of a triple kill from Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles.
Another triple kill from LUCAS1 and one from Raphael "cogu" Camargo then followed, putting North's economy in a dire situation. At 14-14, North went for the win and bought all they could - a decision that paid off as they took the round with a fast B execute. Still, they would not be able to deal the finishing blow as Immortals won the final round to take the match to overtime.
The first overtime could not determine a winner as both teams won two rounds on the CT side. In the second overtime, Immortals took a 2-1 lead after a massive blunder from North saw them waste a 5v2 situation, but then the Brazilians were outplayed in the second half, losing three rounds in a row.
