Carolina Core Takes First League Match in History

Regular season play of the Championship Gaming Series' ( www.thecgs.com) Region 1 got underway last night at EA’s Los Angeles development studio in Los Angeles, CA.

Carolina Core grabbed the first victory in League history with a 28-25 overall score against NY.3D. While 3D's legendary Counter-Strike squad prevailed over their counterparts, the Core persevered on the strength of its Project Gotham Racing team.

“The Carolina Core played amazing tonight in the first CGS match ever," declared Carolina General Manager, Mark Dolven. "The standout performance of the match would have to be Brent "ReX" Dimapilis of the PGR team. Behind his strong racing, the PGR team brought home a clean sweep and helped enable the Core to the overall victory. Katherine "Mystik" Gunn also stepped up in the first of the evening with a comeback win over Coolsvilla.”

In other League action, Dallas edged out Los Angeles with a strong DOA performance.

San Francisco Optx had the most dominant performance of the night with a near sweep of Chicago.

On July 9, 2007, the first live broadcast will air on DIRECTV's The 101.
