AGO dismantle Ghost Academy; through to MDL final
AGO have booked their spot in the ESEA Season 26 MDL Global Challenge final following a comprehensive victory over Ghost Academy.
The series kicked off on Train, which turned out to be a horrible pick for Ghost Academy, who could not counter AGO's aggressive stance and only managed to plant the bomb 11 rounds into the game - and still could not hold the site.
The North American team finally managed to get a round on the board in the 14th round, thanks to Jason "neptune" Tran winning a 1v1, with Jarod "Douglas" Onorato pulling off a triple-kill in the next round to bring the deficit to 2-13.
More misery was about to come Ghost Academy's way as AGO won the pistol round off of three kills from Damian "Furlan" Kislowski, with the Polish side following that up with the next two rounds to lock down the map, 16-2.
Overpass followed the same pattern as the first map, even if Ghost Academy's first round came much earlier than it had on Train. Once again, the North Americans could not string rounds together or build up an economy, with the half ending in a lopsided 13-2 scoreline in AGO's favour.
AGO further added to their lead by taking the pistol round after Furlan and Michał "snatchie" Rudzki shut down the B site. A successful force buy then gave Ghost Academy some breathing room, but once the Polish team got money in the bank it was all over for the home side, with Dominik "GruBy" Swiderski hammering the final nail into the North Americans' coffin with a 1v2 clutch in the final round.
