eX Ladies vs. Sway Ladies
The undefeated Ladies of eX took on the also undefeated Ladies of Sway in the Female Pro League. It was a close, hard fought series in which both sides showed their strengths at some point.
To start the series, we opened with Harpoint on Stronghold, in which Sway ended up taking 250-127. It was a full team effort in which the Ladies of Sway out slayed and out rotated the Ladies on eX, proving that their hardpoint game is a force to be reckoned with. After such a lopsided loss during the first map, the eX Ladies didn't let that discourage them as they came out firing during the second map, Search and Destroy on Infection. It was an impressive performance by our Ladies, with Danyale dropping 14 kills, as they put the pedal to the metal and never let up, taking map two, 6-2, tying the series at one map a piece. Going into the third map, Sway had looked like the better respawn team thus far, but that wasn't the case during Uplink on Breach. The eX Ladies got off to a hot start on the "preferred side", taking an 8-2 lead going into the half. Things got a little testy during the second half as Sway started to rally, bringing the score to 8-7 with 30 seconds left, but the Ladies held tough, maintaining composure, as they threw the drone out for a 15 second ball respawn, leaving Sway with no time to complete the comeback. It seemed as if this map would play as a momentum builder for the Ladies as they headed into what could be the deciding map, Capture the Flag on Evac. After just two minutes into map 4, BerlynnKaee was able to capture the first flag of the game and the only flag capture of the first half, giving eX a 1-0 lead to start the second half. Going into the second half, our Ladies were looking to complete the shutout as they held a 1-0 lead. BerlynnKaee captured her second flag of the map, giving eX a 2-0 map win and helping the girls win the series by a final map count of 3-1, remaining undefeated.
It was an eXecellent performance by our girls as they continue to perform at a high level. Be sure to support the eX Ladies on Twitter; @DanyaleTayla, @Flix_eX, @BerlynnKaee, and @Songfully_eX.
