Match of the Week (2-1 pool) - FiGURE05 [2-0] Lamp
FiGURE05: eimaNt, Delection, Kajic, wave, sKy
Lamp: shokz, bitchiR-, kalsa, zenki, Dex
Lithuanian squad kicked off their map pick of overpass with a T side pistol round victory and an early 2:0 lead. However, as soon as Lamp’s economy started to rise, so did their defence levels. FIGURE05 tried everything in their power to keep up the success, but in the end they had to settle for a first half deficit of 6:9. Now playing on the Counter-Terrorist side, FIGURE05 once again mustered a successful pistol round and an anti-eco victory to go along with it coming to a 8:9 scoreline. Lamp swallowed the early loss and answered back with three rounds in a row, thus gaining a four round lead (8:12). At that point it seemed like Estonians are going to run away with the map as the momentum was clearly in their favor. But, suddenly, out of nowhere, everything just started to click for eimaNt & the boys. FIGURE05 closed out the map with a practically unbreakable defence as they took 8 of the following 9 rounds to come back and win overpass with a 16:13 scoreline.
The second, and the final map of the series was Train picked by Lamp. A CT side start proved immensely fruitful for Lithuanian side as not only did they kick off the map with an early 5:0 lead, but they also managed to keep up the performance later on in the half coming into the halftime with a 12:3 lead. Upon the side switch, things kept going FIGURE05’s way as T side pistol round victory quickly turned into the four rounds needed to close out the map and the series with a dominant 16:3 scoreline.
