Esports Continues Domination in Peach Belt Conference

LAKELAND, Fla. -  The Florida Southern esports League of Legends team dominated in its week three matches, defeating Henderson State on Saturday and Lander on Sunday in two 2-0 matches. The Moccasins (6-0) won in sub-30 minute games against both the Reddies (3-3) and the Bearcats (3-2). 

"I'm very proud of the consistency and focus that our League of Legends team has shown from week to week," head coach Nate Carson said. "We are starting to get into a real groove of balancing our practices, match preparation, and leaving room for the other things that are most important like health, sleep, and staying on top of classes."

"We still have some gameplay and mechanical problems to iron out before the second half of the season and playoffs, but we couldn't be happier with our recent performances. A big thank you to the Peach Belt Conference for allowing us to take over their live stream on Sunday."
