Counter Logic Gaming rallied past Clutch Gaming with a reverse-sweep on Saturday to claim third place in the League of Legends Championship Series Summer Split at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.
Clutch took the first two games of the five-game series, highlighted by a quadrakill from bot laner Cody "Cody Sun" Sun in the first game and a dominant second game for a 2-0 edge.
But CLG didn't give in, battling back to take the final three games and claim the unlikely victory. Support Vincent "Biofrost" Wang was named player of the series.
"We can either get 3-0'd here, or we can do something just out of the ordinary," Biofrost said afterward of the mindset while trailing 0-2. "I was like, 'Screw it, just give me Thresh two games,' and it worked out really well."
The tournament final will be played Sunday in Detroit, between Team Liquid -- who beat Clutch in the semifinals -- and Cloud9, who beat CLG. The winner will claim $100,000, with the loser winning $50,000.
