DWG KIA took down Liiv SANDBOX 2-0 today during the sixth week of the 2021 LCK Spring Split.
All odds were against SANDBOX heading into this League of Legends match. They’re on the opposite side of the standings compared to DK, who are now on an eight-game winning streak.
While SANDBOX did show some signs of life, DK quickly put a stop to that with their impressive mechanics and macro plays. Ghost was the player of today’s series, picking up an MVP vote and a pentakill.
In the first game of this series, SANDBOX managed to acquire early leads after a couple of aggressive plays. The centerpiece of their dominance was Summit, who was shut down in the later stages of the game since DK’s composition scaled better. After a late-game teamfight win, DK turned things around and closed out the first game of the series.
Following Summit’s dominance in the first game, DK banned a lot of top laners going into the second game. With Summit on a tank Gragas, DK took over the rest of the map and built up a drake lead. After securing the Cloud Dragon Soul, they fought SANDBOX head-on and Ghost picked up a pentakill before finishing the match.
Following this victory, DK (10-1) remain in first place in the 2021 LCK Spring Split. Their only loss was to Fredit BRION during the second week of the split. The next matchup against T1 will put DK to the test on Saturday, Feb. 27.
