MIBR hold ENCE to draw at BLAST Pro Series Moscow
The matchup began with a fantastic round by Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo, who secured an early lead for MIBR with a swift pistol ace, with the Brazilians following it up with the subsequent round to get off to a 2-0 start. With guns in hand, ENCE posted their first round on the offense, but the two sides soon found themselves in a back-and-forth affair before Aleksi "allu" Jalli took matters into his own hands with a quad-kill to level the score at 3-3. The Finnish side took the economical advantage going forward and dominated for a string of rounds, eventually emerging with a 9-4 lead.
Armed with only Desert Eagles, the Brazilians demonstrated their precise aim to attain an additional round, with the final round of the half going in favour of MIBR, who headed into the halftime chasing a 9-6 deficit.
Despite a successful retake in the second half pistol, ENCE could not capitalise going forward, with MIBR hitting straight back with a force buy to set off a chain of rounds to cut ENCE's lead to just one. The Finns broke the streak on the back of a Sami "xseveN" Laasanen double-kill, but MIBR regained control with a four-round run to take a 13-11 lead.
The Brazilians looked primed to run away with the map, but a smoke defuse from Miikka "suNny" Kemppi altered the direction of the match once more. The momentum swayed in the way of ENCE as they soon hit two map points, but an eventual 1v2 from FalleN was enough to salvage a draw for MIBR.
