Liquid send Lynn Vision to last chance bracket
Liquid made easy work of their Chinese rivals in the EPL Group D lower bracket.
Josh "oSee" Ohm downed three with dualies in the opening round of the series to get Liquid off to a positive start. Lynn Vision failed to make the best of the attack on Anubis, a highly important side on the map, and were even behind at the half after Keith "NAF" Markovic downed three to keep his team ahead, 8-7.
Jumping into the T side Liquid posted a dominating 8-2 to close it out 16-9, setting themselves up to take the series on their chosen map.
Up against the possibility of going out 0-2, Lynn Vision started off on the right foot on Ancient, winning the first pistol round on the CT side. Hope didn't last, however, as they lost against a second-round forcebuy off the back of a Patsi Galil triple.
Once again Liquid didn't hold back and on the CT side of Ancient won six of seven rounds to seal the deal 16-6 and end the series 2-0. They will now play the loser of Cloud9 vs. Complexity in the middle bracket, while Lynn Vision will play for survival against the loser of 9INE vs. Eternal Fire.
