fnatic edge out Vega to go 2-1 in London
The third day's first match took place on Inferno, where Igor "crush" Shevchenko helped Vega Squadron win the first pistol as Terrorists by taking down three Swedes. Dmitriy "jR" Chervak's men won the following anti-ecos as well as the first gun round to put themselves in a comfortable 4-0 lead.
Winning the next round, Richard "Xizt" Landström and his troops reset Vega Squadron and begun their mission to bring themselves back in the first half. They took the next anti-eco, but crush put his team to a 9-3 lead on the back of a quad-kill. fnatic would manage two more rounds before the half, which ended 10-5 in the favour of Vega Squadron.
Now on the attacking side, fnatic won the pistol round and the following four rounds to reduce the deficit to one. Vega Squadron answered back with two of their own, but then, the Swedes further tightened up their game to reach a tied scoreline (12-12), as Jesper "JW" Wecksell killed the CIS squad's economy with a beautiful 3k spray transfer.
The remainder of the match became a closely fought battle, as fnatic pulled ahead by two only to concede the next pair to tie things up once again. The Swedes would ultimately be the victors, though, as they won the next two to edge out Vega Squadron 16-14.
