Team Queso – featuring two UK Rocket League players Joyo and rise and Frenchman Vatira – won the RLCS Apollo Open EU Regional Event last weekend.
They beat Dignitas 4-1 in the final after a tournament full of big wins.
Spanish organisation Team Queso had a perfect group stage, with three wins and zero losses in group B, putting them first ahead of Misfits and Dignitas.
UK organisation Rix.GG were sadly eliminated from the group stage with three losses.
Fellow UK org Williams Resolve – which entered Rocket League last summer – also finished top of their group (C) and faced Team Queso in the upper semi finals.
It was a close game, but Queso secured the victory with a 4-3 scoreline, before defeating Team BDS 4-0 in the upper bracket final to face Dignitas in the grand final. Williams Resolve finished in the 5th/6th position.
Rise’s teammates were also obviously ecstatic with their achievement:
UK esports organisation Endpoint also did well in the Apollo Open, having finished top of group D ahead of Karmine Corp, Team Vitality and Navi with three wins.
They progressed to the lower bracket semi-finals, where they fell 4-2 to Dignitas, giving Endpoint a fourth-place finish overall, behind Team BDS, Dignitas and Queso.
The next EU Regional Event in Rocket League will take place in early February 2022, with the third event taking place towards the end of February.
