Sentinels Win NA Challengers 2
The VCT Stage 2 NA Challengers 2 had some of the biggest teams and organizations in the region. Things got interesting on day one when we saw T1 get straight up eliminated, while Sentinels fell to the lower bracket after suffering a loss from Andbox. TSM were in a similar situation after losing to Immortals.
Going further into the tournament Sentinels managed to take out every opponent. In round two of the lower bracket, they eliminated Immortals. In the next one, they exacted their revenge against Andbox after a contested series that ended with 2:1 in favor of Sentinels. Their last challenge before the grand final was NRG and Sentinels didn't even lose a map to them.
Sentinels absolutely stomped the opposition as it took only three maps to decide the winner by settling the score with a final 3:0. For their victory at NA Challengers 2, Sentinels claim $20.000 in prize money along with a spot in the Challengers Finals. The three teams behind them also qualified for the Finals event which gives us the full list:
