Mousesports Claims ESL One New York in Upset Over Team Liquid

Mousesports triumphed Sunday when it won a back-and-forth series ​over Team Liquid in the grand finals of ESL One New York.

After an early win on Cache, the German team lost both Nuke and Inferno to go down 1-2 against the North Americans. With some stellar ​Counter-Strike: Global Offensive play, however, mousesports clutched out an overtime scuffle on Dust2 to tie the series before riding that momentum to a win on Mirage.

The win signifies mousesports' best performance since its ​second place finish at ESL One Belo Horizonte in June, and its first big win since V4 Future Sports Festival in March. The team will take home $125,000 for its trouble, along with the satisfaction of having silenced the rabid North American fans that packed the Barclays Center Sunday afternoon.

Mousesports will next compete at Star Series & i-League Season 6, beginning Oct. 7 and continuing through Oct. 14.
