Polished SnD, Control rounds give Los Angeles Thieves critical victory over Boston Breach at Champs

Boston will continue in the lower bracket.

Los Angeles Thieves keep the momentum from Major 4 to send Boston Breach to the lower bracket at Call of Duty Champs with a 32 win.

The former Major 4 champions were able to replicate some of the success they had in New York by holding Boston Breach back and bringing them one step closer to elimination. Last year the Thieves were eliminated from Champs early and now they are one step closer to bringing home the title. 

Boston opened up the series with an impressive performance on Tuscan Hardpoint which had been a solid map for the Thieves at the prior event. The Breach was able to catch the Thieves off guard and beat them to several rotations, eventually giving them the lead. That lead continued to grow until Boston eventually secured map one 250181. Thomas TJHaly Haly had a solid opening with a 1.29 KD with 31 kills and 3570 damage on Tuscan.

What won the L.A. Thieves series consistently in New York was their lights-out performances on both Search and Destroy and Control. These two modes were perfectly polished by the Thieves and that same polish was shown in their matchup against Boston. The Thieves took the second map on Desert Siege Search and Destroy with a 64 win that felt much closer than the score leads to believe. Zach Drazah Jordan made the difference for L.A. with 12 kills and just five deaths for a 2.4 KD. But on the Control Boston Breach reigned supreme again, taking the Control in a dicey round five to move to match point. 

Another Hardpoint went in favor of Thieves the second time around. L.A. maintained the lead early on and was able to hold that lead on Berlin.

The Breach tried their best to close out the map and take the series 31 but it was Thieves who forced the tie to bring them to a final map five. Tuscan Search would be the final map of the series and go all the way to a round eleven as the Breach continued to push the former champions to their near breaking point.

The Thieves stayed icy despite Bostons efforts and were able to close out the last Call of Duty map 65 to win the series 43.
