DTS win ICSC season 9
DTS has won the ninth season of Intel Challenge Super Cup after defeating the Poles of AGAiN in a marathon match of four maps 4-0 due to coming from the lower bracket.
The match started off on de_train where both teams had surprisingly strong Terrorist sides, scoring eight a piece before heading into overtime where DTS stepped up their CT game and got four rounds which was enough to secure a 21-17 win in the next half.
Second map was de_dust2 where once again the commonly weaker CT side was dominant as DTS had a whopping 14 rounds at half time. They wasted no time in the second half and secured an easy 16-1 win to win the first best-of-three series 2-0.
In the second series the first map ended up being extremely close once again as both teams kept trading rounds throughout the entire match on de_nuke which eventually ended with the Ukrainians taking a 16-14 win.
Last map of the series ended up being de_dust2 once again and although the starting sides were swapped this time around it made no difference with DTS claiming 13 rounds as the attackers. AGAiN tried to come back in the second half despite a pistol round loss but it wasn't enough as they ended up losing 5-16 on the map and 0-2 in the series.
