Version1 vs Rogue
RLCSX Spring Regional #3 Day 0
Start time determined by previous match results
Game 1: 1-0
It took a lot of patience by both teams before anything showed up in the box score, but a great fake shot by Gimmick set up Comm for a bouncing clean-up goal to put Version1 on the board. The back and forth play continued for a bit, but V1 held on for the Game 1 victory.
Game 2: 2-0
The second game started off with an impressive Torment double touch that was initially saved by Rogue before Gimmick buried a ground slider just moments later. The slow, choppy play continued for a couple minutes and Torment capitalized on a great touch to make it 2-0. Version1 took Game 2!
Game 3: 2-3
In the first two games it took about two minutes for the first goal to be scored. In this match, however, a quick goal from Torment kicked off a flurry of scoring with alternating goal for each team. With a minute left the score was 2-3 in favor of Rogue and though we mustered what attack we could to tie things up, we couldn’t make it happen. We fell in Game 3.
Game 4: 2-3
Game four kicked off with some major drama as both sides got their shots in. Comm crushed one into the top right corner of the Rogue net a minute in, but Taroco capitalized moments later with two goals. After a minute of rough play, Torment chipped a pretty goal of his own in to tie it up at two. Unfortunately Rogue found a finisher goal with just five seconds left that sent the series to Game 5.
Game 5: 1-2
It was a Firstkiller goal that started off Game 5 and gave Rogue the initial lead. A Gimmick goal followed it thanks to a great Comm pass into the middle which knotted things 1-1. Sadly for Version1, the reverse sweep by Rogue was locked in after a late goal that we couldn’t overcome.
