Stand-in carry Pavcaev lifts Spirit to huge upset of OG

By Ivan Saldajeno

BOCAUE--Spirit pulled off arguably the biggest upset of the Galaxy Battles playoffs.

The Russian quintet eliminated powerhouse squad OG in the lower bracket semifinal at the Philippine Arena on Sunday.

Behind a player listed as a stand-in, Spirit completed the improbable shocker over OG.

Ilya Pavcaev's brilliant play of hard carry Chaos Knight was too much for OG as the European squad was shown the door.

Spirit will battle fellow underdog squad VGJ Thunder in the lower bracket final later Sunday with the winner moving to the best-of-five finals against upper bracket ruler EG.
