SK take down Space Soldiers in Atlanta

Day one of the New Legends stage has come to a close with SK going 1-0.

With João "felps" Vasconcellos in tow, SK faced Space Soldiers on Mirage for the final match on the first day of the New Legends stage.

The Brazilians kicked off the match by taking the T side pistol with a B site hit, and followed up by securing the two ensuing anti-eco rounds. The fourth round was Space Soldiers' first true opportunity to reply, and that chance was seized by Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli as he found three frags with his AWP. 

Despite being economically reset by SK in the next round, Space Soldiers fought back to take the lead, grabbing four rounds of their own. SK tried to regain control as they evened the score, but Space Soldiers pressed forward to garner another three rounds for themselves. A two-on-five victory by Fernando "fer" Alvarenga and Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo granted SK their sixth round, but Space Soldiers ended the half in the lead 9-6.

The second pistol round of the match also went SK's way, allowing the Brazilians to push back and regain the lead; however, once the Turkish side had rifles SK were unable to keep ahead, and Space Soldiers claimed twelve rounds to SK's ten.

At this point Marcelo "coldzera" David began to find frags himself, and FalleN continued laying waste with his AWP. The team began shutting down Space Soldiers, retaking sites efficiently to close out the match 16-13.
