Rocket League Player Nails The Crossbar For Huge Upset

Though played with rocket-powered cars, Rocket League is still soccer at its core, and a shot right at the crossbar can still beat the goalie out for a huge goal.

Alexandre "Mout" Moutarde, a sub for The Leftovers, played with two others in the Rocket Royale today under the guise Northern Tactics. The three got put against last season's Rocket League Championship Series runner-up Mock-It Esports, and proceeded to put up some impressive goals against the silver medalists.

Northern Tactics would go on to defeat Mock-It 3-1 in the overall series, knocking them out of the tournament and advancing to the European grand finals to play Northern Gaming. It was a tense match, but Northern Gaming emerged 4-2 victorious over Tactics, winning the European grand finals.

The Royale is an exhibition tournament to showcase some high-level Rocket League, in anticipation of the Championship Series' third season starting this year. With a performance like today's, Moutarde may not find himself a sub for much longer.

You can follow the rest of the matches for the North American squads on the Rocket League Twitch channel.

    I love this game......but watching these guys fly around like it ain't no thang makes me wanna quit.

    The show of physics and geometry based skills is off the fucking chart. The best thing about rocket league though is that even if you're not an aerial skills master, you can still pull off goals which will always make this game accessible to everyone.

    All hail the RL

    Actually the current Mockit Esports roster are NOT the same Mockit Aces team that we're runners up in the last RLCS.

    That roster is no longer with Mockit and are playing as "Pockit Aces" this season, I believe.

      Correction: "Pocket Aces" 😁
