ENCE move past Spirit, close to playoffs at EPL S14

ENCE move past Spirit, close to playoffs at EPL S14

Another unexpected outcome.

A yet another disappointing outcome.

Third day of ESL Pro League Season 14 pitted a winless Team Spirit squad, trying to keep their chances of advancing further alive, against ENCE Esports, who took down Astralis yesterday.

Teams traded blows back and forth on Nuke, but ultimately it was Finnish team which secured a force buy at “10-11” deficit, jumping ahead and never letting it go for the first map victory. Going to Dust 2, a known CIS squad stronghold, Spirit looked to equalize and force a decider on Mirage, but they got completely locked out of the first half. ENCE stormed to an “11-4” half time and despite losing second pistol, instantly rushed B to put final nail in the coffin - “16-4” and “2-0”.

All but eliminated, Team Spirit will face Bad News Bears on Thursday, while ENCE Esports can guarantee themselves a playoff berth by taking down Heroic, who are yet to lose a single map in the event.
