eUCoD goes 3-1 in cross-division play of pro league
Last week in CWL Pro League play was just what the doctor ordered for eUnited.
The addition of Chris “Simp” Lehr to the starting lineup paid immediate dividends as the team was able to get maintain a tie for first place in Division B and pull away in the playoff race from teams in the middle of the pack. Currently, eUnited is two games ahead of the fourth place cutoff for an automatic playoff berth.
It didn’t come easy for the team, as three out of four series came down to a Game 5, Search and Destroy with eUnited winning two against Evil Geniuses and Red Reserve. The lone series dropped was to CWL Fort Worth winner and Division A leader Luminosity Gaming.
eUnited is now at the midpoint in the season with an 8-3 record. The squad will run up against every team in Division B once more and also finish play against the remaining four teams, including OpTic Gaming, in Division A later in the year.
Here is a rundown of series scores from last week:
eUnited 3, Evil Geniuses 2
eUnited 3, UYU 0
Luminosity Gaming 3, eUnited 2
eUnited 3, Red Reserve 2
