NRG defeat NiP at ECS S7 Finals
An uninspired start from NRG on the T side of Train allowed NiP to build a 5-0 lead, with Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson and Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund leading the fragging for their side. The streak was broken in the next round as Tsvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov found a hole in the Ivy defense and eliminated three NiP members, and NRG followed that up for a second.
NiP didn't falter, however, winning two rounds in a row to keep their economy from breaking, at least for the time being. NRG did finally manage to force the Swedes on an eco and narrow the scoreline to 4-7, but failed to capitalize on a 4v3 post plant which limited them to five rounds on the Terrorist side.
Claiming the CT pistol was crucial to NRG getting back in the game, and perhaps even more important was the North American side winning the 4v4 in the second rifle round after losing the first one to NiP. That kept their economy in place and saw the score equalized shortly, 11-11.
Lekr0 opened up the following round, taking down the opposing IGL Damian "daps" Steele, still, NiP wasn't able to capitalize on the early advantage as their B execute fell flat, without a single kill going their way. NRG continued their CT side streak from there, finishing the half with nine in a row to make it 16-11.
