Cloud9 completed a strong weekend and continued to roll, picking up another victory to cap Week 8 of League of Legends’ North American League Championship Series (LCS) in Spring Split action on Sunday.
After topping 100 Thieves on Saturday in online play, Cloud9 upped its record to 15-1 by defeating Counter Logic Gaming in one of five matches on the day.
The win extended Cloud9’s lead to six games in the standings, with three teams behind at 9-7. Two of those squads lost on Sunday, as Team SoloMid fell to Immortals and FlyQuest was bested by Thieves.
Evil Geniuses also sit in a three-way tie for second after downing Dignitas. Team Liquid beat Golden Guardians in the day’s other matchup.
