FULL SEND complete ESL LA League S3 Finals team list
After W7M, Isurus, and Furious all earned their place at the ESL LA League S3 Finals, one more spot remained to complete the four-team LAN final set to take place from March 2-3. There, $10,660 and two spots for the ESL Pro League Season 9 Americas will be up for grabs.
The Northern Cone featured 14 teams battling through two round-robin groups, where FULL SEND and Jaguar placed top two in Group B, before advancing through the single-elimination bracket to meet in the BO3 decider.
The grand final started on FULL SEND's map pick, Train, where the men of Jaguar got off to a smooth 3-0 start, but, swiftly, Mario "malbsMd" Samayoa & co. fired back with five straight. A back and forth battle ensued, but, in the end, the Columbian-Guatemalan side would come out 8-7 at halftime. Juanes "sickLy" Valencia's unit looked to spark something new in the second half, but FULL SEND's defense looked stout, locking down eight out of nine rounds to take the 16-8 map victory.
The series then switched to Mirage. The first half was all malbsMd and his men putting in work on their T side, winning a total of nine rounds before Jaguar ended the half with their sixth. Things didn't look up well for Cristian "nezzi" Ardila and his troops, who could only muster three rounds in the second half of play as Andres "spamzzy1" Correa posted a 1.76 rating in the team's 16-9 map victory, thus confirming his squad at the ESL LA League S3 LAN Finals in Brazil.
