Scorching Florida Mutineers put win streak on line in ‘home’ Call of Duty League virtual event

Magic Gaming win season opener as ‘Reizey,’ ‘DT’ go off on Bucks in Game 2; ‘ToXsiK’ plays perfect game 1

Magic Gaming brought out the brooms – and Reid “Reizey” Hill had a small bout of unconsciousness – to finish off a two-game sweep of Bucks Gaming in the team’s season opener on Wednesday.

Hill finished the decisive game with 30 points on 11-of-17 shooting and hit three clutch 3-pointers in the early part of the second half to help close an 11-point first-half gap.

Hill said a familiarity with Bucks Gaming helped the team’s morale, despite heading into halftime trailing by 7.

“I was feeling confident,” he said. “We had no doubt the game was still very much winnable. We had come back against this team before in scrimmages.”

Magic Gaming won the game 66-63 after pulling off a commanding 74-64 win in Game 1.
