CLG Red win WESG 2018 World Finals Female over Lazarus

The female squad representing the United States, CLG Red, took down the Russian side Lazarus fe after two tightly contested maps (16-14 Train, 16-14 Overpass) to win WESG 2018 World Finals Female and claim $60,000.

The tournament featured eight teams, split into two groups which were played out using a round-robin BO2 system. $105,000 was up for grabs, with the prize pool distributed only amongst the top three finishers.

paiN fe, France fe, TYLOO fe, and ArkAngel fe were eliminated in groups, with the latter two teams finishing without a single map win. CLG Red, who were using Brianna "masq" Becker as a stand-in for their Canadian player Mounira "GooseBreeder" Dobie, took down Those Damn Canadians in the semi-final 2-1, while Lazarus fe defeated the Australian side Carnage fe for a place in the grand final.

bENITA led the way for CLG Red in the grand final

The final series started on Train, CLG Red's pick, but Lazarus fe had a great start on the CT side, 5-0, putting on the pressure early. However, Emma "Emy" Choe and co. managed to recover in the second part of the half, finishing it 9-6, with the second round force buy as CT proving crucial to their comeback on the defensive side. In the end, they were 11-14 down, but a six-round winning streak saw CLG Red steal away the map, 16-14.

Overpass followed a similar pattern, Lazarus fe grabbed a strong lead, this time going 9-1 up, but with Diane "di^" Tran stepping up, CLG Red managed to salvage the half, 10-5. After the switch, Anna "Ant1ka" Ananikova and co. were unable to get any momentum or tie rounds together, allowing the American team to close out the map with another close victory, 16-14, and take the title in China.
