Cosa Nostra Penguins (formerly Fever Gaming Team 1) defeats Shark Syndicate 3-1.

In a well fought best of 5 series which saw the Penguins drop the first match in the series, Cosa Nostra Penguins rallied back to take 3 games in a row to clinch the Finals.

In Game 1 CNP left open a vital playmaking champion that would lead to their downfall in a match that lasted Just shy of 40 minutes. Wolfganks as Z.A.C. played a beautiful 4/1/17 scoreline as his team would rally behind him, 32-19 in kills. Shark Syndicate played fast and aggressive, not allowing the Penguins to drop a single tower while ArtemisofHT took MVP of Game 1 on Tristana with a 10/4/8 KDA.

Game 2 was a complete turnaround for CNP, adjusting the bans to not allow Tristana or Z.A.C. to see play forced Shark Syndicate onto the suboptimal picks of Caitlyn and Kha'Zix respectively. The result was an absolutely one sided affair lasting only 26 minutes, Shark Syndicate gave up 30 kills while only able to secure 5 kills of their own. The OG Boricua put on a clinic with Zed. At 13/1/4 he looked utterly unstoppable. It would be the Penguins AD Carry who would snatch MVP honors on Twitch, showing a masterful 12/0/9 KDA when the Nexus fell.

Game 3 was looking better for the Sharks. Down 3 towers and 5k gold at 18 minutes, a midlane pick on Worg's Jinx looked like the opening they needed to gain control of the situation. Unfortunately, EVG Pewpew and his Jarvin IV pick had other plans. A perfectly timed Teleport lead to a 4 man Cataclysm followed immediately by a 3 man Glacial Prison from JNG Fifty and Sejuani. The penguins would go on to clean up the fight 5 for 2 as JNG Fifty would summon the Rift Herald, opening Mid Inhibitor at only 19 minutes while Penguins skyrocketed to a massive 10k gold lead. Shark Syndicate did manage to secure a Baron at 25 minutes, yet the gold lead was just to much to close and the game would come to an end only 3 minutes later. With Anivia, The OG Boricua would go 11/2/9 to earn MVP of Game 3

MATCH POINT

Game 4 started slowly, waiting until a 6 minute tower dive to draw First Blood for CNP, the Penguins would spend much of the mid game playing reactively to the Sharks early tempo. They would keep the Tower trades even and slowly pull a kill lead as Shark Syndicate Byrdicus got big on his Malzahar pick. A 15 minute shutdown as CNP secured their first Mountain Drake of the game allowed the penguins to truly start to take command of the match. While Towers and gold would stay even for the next 15 minutes, superior map play lead to CNP securing Baron 28 minutes in. Growing the gold lead to 5k and doubling the kills (26-11) after half an hour of game time, lead CNP to place an ever looming timer on the heads of Shark Syndicate. The Sharks needed to act, with their base being decimated by Baron empowered Super Minions, they decided on a do or die teamfight. ACED echoed across the rift as CNP came away with a 4v5 teamfight win just outside the Sharks base, but with healthbars so low on the side of the Penguins, Shark Syndicate had bought themselves some time. CNP held 2 Mountain drakes and an Ocean drake as the final Elemental drake of the game entered the Rift at 33 minutes. Infernal. The Sharks needed this one, down in power to the gold lead built up by Cosa Nostra, this could be enough to get back into the fight. Sadly, fate is a cruel mistress. An explosive teamfight ensued which saw Worg on Caitlyn chase down 2 kills, followed by a pick onto the Sharks Jungler. CNP stormed into the base, Pushed deep into their own Fountain Ezreal and Gangplank could only watch as the towers fell around them. With MVP honors in Game 4 macho0001 would stand at 2/4/24 on Lulu, and at 33:29 Caitlyn fired off one final shot, sending the Nexus up in smoke.
