mousesports beat AVANGAR in overtime; HellRaisers even out record over Complexity
AVANGAR opened the scoreboard on Inferno by winning the first pistol round on the defense as Alexey "qikert" Golubev and Timur "buster" Tulepov both hit two headshots with the USP. A fast play on the A site in the first gun round ended with a 5vs4 afterplant situation and the Kazakh team calling for a save. Two frags by Sanjar "SANJI" Kuliev and three by buster kept AVANGAR ahead, and a blooper by David "frozen" Čerňanský throwing a molotov in a 1vs1 afterplant meant the Kazakhs would take a 5-1 lead. It seemed like AVANGAR were in charge, but mousesports were able to put in four out of five rounds to close the gap. But it was Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev and company who were able to take a 9-6 lead at the half.
Four kills by frozen got mousesports off on the right foot on the CT side, who then won the third round with SMGs to tie it up, 9-9. The match evened out at 10-10, and a successful B play by AVANGAR gave them the lead once again. The two teams continued shoulder to shoulder until the Kazakh side took a 14-12 lead, but mousesports won a crucial 27th round to stay alive as Chris "chrisJ" de Jong pulled off a ninja defuse. Despite losing the following round, mousesports managed to take the last two to push it to overtime.
AVANGAR took the first round in the first half, and after two opening frags by buster in the second, bagged another. mousesports then took the last round before evening it up after the switch, 17-17, going on to hit match point after winning a 2vs2 afterplant on A. With only one match point up their sleeve, they took a 2vs3 afterplant situation on B to seal the deal.

HellRaisers won a 4vs3 afterplant situation on the attacking side of Inferno against Complexity to kick off their second match in Berlin.
