timbermen cut down the opposition at FRAG Fullerton 2
The second Fullerton of Fragadelphia 17 ends the same as the last, with Damian "droid" Boulware and Adam "nbgee12" Zanzoul winning it all. The duo might have won this event with a different squad but they retained their dominance over the Californian city.
timbermen found themselves going up against No Namers with Egos in the semi-finals, a team that notably has Andrew "Ghostii" Kehler, who played for DETONATE for the second half of last year. The former Luxe core was able to cut down their opponents with relative ease, taking the first map of Nuke 16-10.
After a rather straightforward first map, something quite spectacular happened. Derek "dare" Brown, who ended Nuke at the bottom of the scoreboard, would go on to drop 33 kills in the second map. This would end up making him the highest-rated player in the series and a massive reason why timbermen were able to progress to the final with such ease.
With a final setup against Hustler's University, the two favorites to make it through to Fragadelphia 17 from this event were now going head to head to win it all. Strife youngster, Ethan "reck" Serrano, would be the one to try to stand in the way of dare and company. But unfortunately for him, Inferno was a display of dominant Counter-Strike from timbermen, with the team winning 16-11 as reck's 1.30 rating could do nothing to keep his side in the game.
The second map was a completely different story. Hustler's University put up a fight as Davenport University IGL, John "arcade" Rogel, found a finer form and helped his mix push timbermen to three overtimes. Unfortunately for them, it was not enough, as the long-fought battle of Vertigo was for naught with timbermen taking the win 25-23. The hero for timbermen was once again dare who, with 73 kills in the final of Fragadelphia 17 Fullerton 2, was a huge reason that timbermen was able to win the event and will now be attending Fragadelphia 17 this September.
