AVANGAR beat ENCE; secure grand final match against forZe in Moscow
The game between AVANGAR and ENCE was crucial to deciding the second finalist of BLAST Pro Series Moscow, with forZe securing their spot earlier in the tournament. Sitting on 6 points and in second place, AVANGAR had their destiny in their own hands going into a game against ENCE on Dust2.
At the start, things didn't work out so well for the team from Kazakhstan as their 2-0 start was replied on by seven straight rounds from the Finns. AVANGAR woke up in the second part of the half and with Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev's triple kill, equalized the score at 7-7.
Neither team ran away with it the second half, but the turning point was AVANGAR winning a round with pistols and a saved AWP on Dzhami "Jame" Ali at the point where ENCE had a 11-9 lead. From that point onwards it was all about the Kazakh team, who closed out the game 16-13 after a quad kill from Jame.
