A spot in the semi-final at BLAST Premier Spring Final was on the line when ENCE and OG took to the server.
The series began on OG's choice of Dust2, and early on it did not look good for 'nexa's troops. The OG boys had some trouble with their time management which lost them a couple of rounds early on, but as soon as they solved that problem they were extremely hot. Led by stand-in 'degster', OG grabbed ten rounds on the T side.
ENCE, led by 'Maden', managed to close the gap between the teams after the break, but OG persisted and narrowly won Dust2 at 16-13.
The action continued on Vertigo where the teams were neck-and-neck throughout the first fifteen rounds. ENCE, wanting to come back in the series, got the best start, but at halftime, it was anybody's game.
In what was a superb team effort, OG played an immaculate T side where they only dropped two rounds to the world's current #2 and secured the map at 16-9.
OG have secured a place in the semi-finals while ENCE will have to play the quarter-finals.
