Esports swept Triumph on Wednesday to remain undefeated in the ESL Pro League Season 12: North America event.
FURIA Esports (2-0) faced a tough challenge in the first map before posting a 16-13 win on Train. They faced little resistance in the second, however, and breezed to a 16-2 victory on Inferno.
Brazilian Henrique “HEN1” Teles had 42 kills and a plus-18 kills-to-death ratio to lead FURIA Esports, who return to action on Sunday against Team Liquid.
Triumph (0-2) were led by Canadian Kaleb “moose” Jayne, who had 37 kills and a plus-2 kill-to-death differential.
The top two teams in the standings of the $225,000 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament will advance to the upper bracket of the double-elimination playoffs. The third- and fourth-place sides will move on to the lower bracket of the playoffs.
All matches except for the final are best-of-three. The Sept. 27 championship match will be best-of-five, with the team emerging from the upper bracket starting with a one-map lead.
