mousesports beat North to enter 1-1 pool in Berlin
The matchup began with North picking up the opening pistol thanks to a poised triple-kill from Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye on the defence. MOUZ instantly hit back to level the score with a force buy, adding two more rounds for a 3-1 lead. Determined to prevent MOUZ from gaining any substantial advantage, North swiftly eliminated Finn "karrigan" Andersen and his squad with an aggressive push through mid to once more level the score, this time at 3-3.
MOUZ’ offensive capability shined going forward, with Robin "ropz" Kool leading the charge for the European mixture as they attained a 6-3 advantage. North could only respond with one round before MOUZ extended the scoreline further. However, a phenomenal 5v5 retake from the Danes on the B bombsite using efficient utility salvaged a tolerable scoreline as Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså and co. headed into halftime chasing a 10-5 deficit.
The two sides opened the second half with a round apiece before a pistol force buy from MOUZ increased their lead further at 14-6. With North staring defeat in the face, the Danes’ resilience surfaced as they strung together four consecutive rounds. With North hot on their heels, MOUZ were able to eventually grind out the map 16-13 thanks to an incredible ace from Chris "chrisJ" de Jong.
