Three wins and three losses on day one of qualifying have Philadelphia Union gamer Cormac Dooley in sixth place in the East heading into the second day of the inaugural eMLS Cup event at PAX East in Boston.
Dooley, aka Doolsta, won three games and lost three on the first day of action, but has two games in hand on all but one player ahead of him in the standings. He has 10 games remaining today to earn passage into the playoff round — all but one will advance from the East and another eight from the 10gamers in the West will book a spot in the playoffs.
An Ireland native who moved to West Chester last year, the Union’s 17-year-old gamer representative earned the title by winning the Union eSports Open last month.
“Here every single person’s amazing,” Dooley said in an interview with the SpinBros. “It’s definitely more tense.”
Doolsta swept New England Revolution’s JKO1707 with 5-1 and 3-2 wins, lost both games to NYCFC’s didychrislito and split a pair — a 2-1 win and a 4-3 loss — with New York Red Bulls’ Mike LaBelle.
