The Florida Mutineers beat the Boston Breach 3-2 today, taking the upper hand in the final map of the series to finish 2-3 in the 2022 Call of Duty League Major Three qualifiers.
Gavautu Hardpoint was the opening match of the best-of-five series and was a slugfest between the two teams for the majority of the time. But after taking a 244-200 lead during the end stages of the map, Boston threw their advantage away and allowed the Mutineers to finish the map 250-248 in their favor. Despite the devastating Hardpoint loss, the Breach’s Nero had the highest KD on the map with a 1.38 after dropping nearly 30 kills.
Boston bounced back during Bocage Search and Destroy, though. The two teams kept things close during the early rounds, but soon, Boston began running away with the map to win 6-3, giving Florida few opportunities to come back. Nero once again was the difference-maker after posting 14 kills and only five deaths across the nine rounds of Search and Destroy.
Florida were quick to challenge back on Tuscan Control, where they never let off the gas throughout the map. Not only were they outplaying the Breach, but they were also out-rotating their opponents. With a 3-1 win on the Control, the Mutineers moved to match point in the series. Despite having their opponents on match point, Boston still pulled off the second Hardpoint on Tuscan in their favor to force the series into a map five.
The series ended on Berlin Search and Destroy. After a brutal back and forth, the game reached round 11 just as both TJHaLy and Capsidal’s games crashed. And after the crashes, Florida clutched out the round 11 to take the series 3-2.
This loss means that Boston will start the CDL’s Major Three in the losers bracket. Major Three will take place in Toronto from June 2 to 5.
