Spirit, Windigo through to semi-finals in Leicester

Spirit and Windigo have booked semi-final spots at the ESEA Season 27 MDL Global Challenge after winning their respective decider matches.

With BIG and eUnited through to the playoffs after finishing at the summit of their respective groups, the Global Challenge resumed with the decider matches, pitting Spirit against ORDER, and Windigo against Torqued.

The first match of the day ended up being a straightforward 2-0 win for Spirit. On both Overpass and Cache, the Russian side grabbed a commanding 13-2 half-time lead before quickly wrapping things up after the break, with Pavel "COLDYY1" Veklenko leading the charge with a dominant 1.79 Rating/120 ADR.

Windigo came from behind to beat Torqued

The following encounter began with Torqued taking the lead in the series with a convincing 16-6 success on Inferno. The North Americans kept up that pace on Overpass and Mirage, but on both occasions they surrendered half-time leads despite a strong individual display from Kenneth "koosta" Suen, who was Torqued's top performer on all three maps.

The MDL Global Challenge, taking place at the ESL UK studios, in Leicester, will continue on Sunday with the single-elimination playoffs, which will culminate with the grand final, at 20:30.
