The RED Canids faced off against Group A favorites LNG Esports.
RED Canids vs LNG Esports
While the start of the game was quiet, it all exploded at the seven-minute mark. RED picked up a mid-lane First Blood, while another kill was secured in the top side. LNG got on the board with a kill from Tarzan, just before the drake was secured by RED, who held a 500g lead after losing another kill in the top side. But RED’s great early start was falling apart by the 17-minute mark. LNG moved to just shy of 1k ahead as they started to turn the screw.
The LNG snowball continued to grow, and right when Baron spawned, LNG caught out two members of RED. While Baron wasn’t attempted, LNG was able to gain massive vision control around the objective. RED refused to be brushed aside, despite being 5k behind they managed to sneak away a Drake, delaying any possible Elder victory for LNG. With RED losing a member, LNG secured an easy Baron buff as they looked to close out their third win.
With Baron secured, LNG walked into the RED base. The Inhibitor fell with ease, and despite RED trying their best, LNG swept them aside. The win moved LNG to 3-0, while RED went to 1-1. With the win, LNG moved a step closer to the Group Stage, while RED still had some work to do.
