Defiance eSports defeats Ferris State

DEFIANCE, OHIO - The Defiance College Hearthstone team was in action this past weekend at the Defiance College eSports Arena.

The Yellow Jackets opened with Odd Warrior versus their Zoo Warlock, the match-up was a clear favorite for us and Odd Warrior came out on top after clearing a couple of boards.

With us leading 1-0 we found ourselves in a mirror match of Deathrattle Hunters, we proceeded to make a couple risky plays that lost us board control, and their board crushed us in the late game making it 1-1.
They then led out with their original Warlock Zoo, which proved to be too fast and won relatively quick with pure aggression. 
Now behind with a scoreline of 1-2 we had to sweep back with two wins in a row. The last two matches would be fought tooth and nail! The last deck they had to win with would be Shudderwock Shaman (a combo deck), so we swapped to Token Druid (also a combo deck).
We were trying to stick creatures to the board and buff them. They were trying to play battlecry minions to activate their shudderwock combo, but we were able to get our combo off with some aggressive decision. The scoreline was now 2-2. Last game will decide the match!
The match would be decided with our Deathrattle Hunter VS their Shudderwock Shaman. It proved to be a pretty close game, but Deathrattle Hunter's board proved to be too strong mid game for Shudderwock, deeming Defiance College the victors.
