North edge out Liquid in Texas

After a slow start on the T-side, North came back to beat Liquid 16-12 on Nuke and reach the Group B winner's match against NiP.

The fourth match of the day took place on Nuke, where Liquid won the initial pistol round by cleanly retaking the A site from their Danish opponents. Taking full advantage of their CT-side start, the North Americans rushed ahead to a 6-0 lead before North could respond.

Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye and co. men then won two rounds, the first on the back of a quad-kill from the 20-year-old, after which Liquid won a pair of their own to lead 8-2. North then gathered their wits to win four rounds in a row, one of which included a quad-kill by Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså, and would ultimately reach a respectable 6-8 deficit before switching to the defensive side.

aizy topped the scoreboard with 25 kills

Here, the Danes started out strong by winning the second pistol round as well as the following anti-eco, which featured an M4A1 ace from valde. Casper "cadiaN" Møller's men gave Liquid no respite for a good while and reached a 13-9 lead before the North Americans got on the board as Terrorists. Nick "nitr0" Cannella's troops won two in a row, got reset in the next, but then successfully took the B site with only pistols to put themselves in a fairly good position to even things out.

North fended off the comeback, though, as the Danes managed two tight holds on the A site to close things out 16-12.
