mousesports ease past Renegades; advance to next stage
mousesports defeated Renegades on Mirage 16-4, securing their third win at the Major Qualifier and advancing to the main stage.
mousesports were off to a great start on Mirage as Terrorists, starting the map by picking up the 3-0 lead. In the first gun round, Robin "ropz" Kool entried A through a smoke that allowed the rest of the squad to overwhelm the site and advance their lead.
Miikka "suNny" Kemppi's fast agression though mid caused issues for Renegades, who were getting caught off guard by the Finn. After some rounds were traded back and forth, the European side ended on top of the economy game, extending their lead to 10-2.
The half finished with mousesports sitting on a 11 round lead. Renegades went for a A site execute with the pistols and managed to secure a bombplant and some good trades, but couldn't hold on to the retake from CT spawn, going down 14-4. Martin "STYKO" Styk and co. did lose a round to a A house walk-out strategy, but closed out the game shortly, 16-4.
