Gambit Youngsters, Warthox win opening CIS Minor matches
After tricking the players of Nemiga to rotate to B, Warthox were quick to take advantage of the one-man army defending the other side of the map and secured themselves the first pistol round of Inferno. The quick aggression of Warthox continued to overwhelm the CT-side for the remainder of the half as they put round after round on the board, Nemiga able to answer back with only five rounds of their own before switching sides.
With the score 10-5, Nemiga had a lot of work to do to get themselves back into the game. However, they were unable to catch a break as the pistol of Vladislav "minse" Kuzminykh shredded their attempted push onto the B-site. With no money in the bank, the odds of Nemiga making a comeback became smaller and smaller as their Russian opponents reached 13 rounds. Despite a valiant effort from Anton "boX" Burko and Aleksandr "mds" Rubets during the second half, they were only able to put four more rounds on the board before Warthox closed out the game 16-9.
