NRG beat Swole Patrol in London

NRG beat Swole Patrol on Nuke, 16-10, at Twickenham Stadium in London, to get the Americas Minor underway.

NRG and Swole Patrol kicked the Americas Minor off on Nuke, with the former taking the pistol round after a play on the lower bombsite that their rivals were unable to stop. NRG then tried an A split after flashing yard and trying to run into garage, but Derrick "LILMAN" Boyne and Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir downed the Terrorists before they could get to the site. Swole Patrol then took the following two rounds, with the last one seeing Ethan "Ethan" Arnold unable to stop defuse in time in a 1vs2 despite eventually killing both enemies.

NRG win the Group A opener against Swole Patrol

The map quickly started to slip away from Swole Patrol's grip as NRG warmed up and took four rounds in a row for a 7-3 lead before Samuel "SileNt" Portillo & co. could reply. Having reset Swole Patrol the following round, NRG took control of the economy late in the half and closed it out 10-5.

Ethan and Tsvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov, with a triple and a double, respectively, stopped Swole Patrol on their tracks. Having won the anti-ecos and the first gun round, NRG took the 14-5 lead to create a large cushion. SileNt was then able to win a 1vs2 after plant on A, which became a catalyst as Swole Patrol tried to bring the deficit back winning several rounds in a row. With 14-10 on the board, Ethan was able to win a 1vs1 against SileNt on the A site to defuse the bomb and get his team on match point. NRG then closed it out the following round, to take the match 16-10.
