BIG Academy sweep Astralis Talent, stay alive at WePlay AL S2
An elimination match in group A.
First team out of contention.
As neither Astralis Talent or BIG Academy could win their opening match in group A of WePlay Academy League Season 2, it was time to find out the squad, which was going to continue to participate in the tournament.
Back and forth to start on Inferno, BIG Academy managed to obtain a five round lead before the switch and despite a yet another attempt at coming back, Astralis Talent could not catch their opponents, as the German team won first map, “16-11”. Moving to Overpass, BIG Academy, once again, led at the half, even though by only three, but the Danes took over the game shortly after the break. Up “12-9”, Astralis Talent looked primed to force a decider, but BIG Academy pulled a rabbit out of their hat, winning seven consecutive rounds to win “16-12” and close the entire series in their favour, “2-0”.
While Astralis Talent are now out, BIG Academy will face the loser of a later match between Young Ninjas and NAVI Junior, who have already beaten them on the server few days ago.
