Rocket League: Semi Final Recap

It all came down to this. A win against Endpoint would book our place in the Grand Finals of Rocket League. Let's see how the match played out.

Infused Rocket League

Ryan "Doomsee" Graham

Jordan "EyeIgnite" Stellon

Sebastian "Sebadam" Adamatzky

Endpoint began the first game of the best-of-seven series with the early offence on the Infused goal. Despite this, Doomsee managed to grab the opening goal to take the early lead. That goal was enough for the boys in red to take the game and a 1-0 lead in the series. Game two and the Endpoint attack began to pay off. Both Cheerio and Shakharon scored to immediately level the series at 1-1.

Game three was a very back and forth contest from the outset. Some near misses from the squad in the latter stages of the game weren't enough to break the Endpoint defence and the game headed to overtime. Tinny capitalised for Endpoint to score the winner, giving Endpoint the lead in the series. The next game was a must win for Doomsee & co. The momentum was in favour of Endpoint. Shakharon scored the only goal of the game to put the opposition on match point. Could the team pull off an unthinkable reverse sweep?

It wasn't to be. Despite a thrilling fifth game between the two teams, Endpoint closed out the game 5-2 and the series 4-1.

GGWP to Endpoint. We finish 4th in Rocket League and 3rd in the Franchise standings. We'll be back better than ever for Season 2!
