SK Gaming narrowly take down mousesports

The Brazilian side secure their second win at the ELEAGUE Major.

With the final 1-0 match up at the Major, it was Brazil's SK Gaming facing off against the European mix of mousesports. With the two sides looking incredibly strong at the event, it was Mirage where they faced off.

SK began the game with the pistol round on their T-side, with Marcelo "coldzera" David instantly showing he's in the game with an immediate pistol round. They followed it up with the anti-eco rounds before mousesports game in with the first buy round, thanks to Martin "STYKO" Styk defusing in the smoke. The Europeans followed it up with the next round, but SK came back with two rounds of their own. 

It was mousesports who took three further rounds to even the game up, in what was slowly becoming a very close and scrappy game between the two teams. SK picked up the next round to remain ahead, with João "felps" Vasconcellos taking three kills, before taking the following one. It was mousesports who ended the half ahead by taking the final three rounds, with Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný showing his strengths for a narrow 8-7 lead.

The second half saw SK take the second pistol round on the CT-side, followed up with the first anti-eco. It was Robin "ropz" Kool who secured a 1v2 to land mousesports' first round on the second half, before SK instantly replied and reset their opponents. With SK taking a narrow lead again, mousesports weren't happy with the situation and pushed on to take two further rounds and even the game again.

With barely a hair between either team in this match, it was SK who secured a lead for themselves once again, following it up with another round after a mistake from mousesports. From there it was looking as if it was just SK's game as the Brazilians secured match point, but the Europeans nabbed a quick round to potentially go for overtime. But in the end it was coldzera and co. who were too strong for their opponents as they took the game 16-12.
