MIBR dominate cowana in two maps
In the ESL Pro League Season 16 Conference opening round, MIBR continued their recent good run of form and demolished cowana in just two maps. The Brazilians displayed two phenomenal CT-sides accompanied by competitive T-sides that left their opponents without any chance.
In the first and closest map, Ancient, Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes put on a show as MIBR grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck and took the first half 10-5. After a valiant display on their CT-side and with no one from cowana able to step up, MIBR were in a good position at half-time. However, the second half was far more competitive and for a moment there was a glimmer of hope for cowana. Despite this, that moment passed as quickly as it came and some solid team-orientated rounds allowed MIBR to close out the game 16-11.
With momentum on their side MIBR started off strong on Overpass, putting up seven T-sided rounds together and looking in a good position as they entered the second half. However, what came next was an unexpected display of domination that left cowana out to dry. An extremely well-rounded display led by Jhonatan "JOTA" Willian turned into nine CT-side rounds, only giving up one round to their opponents in the second half. This incredible run gave MIBR the 2-0 victory with a 16-9 scoreline on the second map.
