T1 remained in fourth place with a sweep of KT Rolster as Week 7 continued on Friday in the League of Legends Champions Korea Summer Split.
T1 (8-4, plus-7 differential) used the MVP play of Ju-hyeon "Clozer" Lee MVP and Jin-seong "Teddy" Park to defeat KT (5-8, -6), which stands at seventh place in the 10-team field. KT has struggled to get untracked throughout the tournament, never moving higher than sixth place.
In the day's other action, sixth-place SANDBOX Gaming (6-7, -4) topped Team Dynamics (4-9, -8) by a 2-1 margin. It was the fifth straight loss for Dynamics, mired in eighth place.
SANDBOX won the first and third maps behind MVPs Woo-tae "Summit" Park and Jang-gyeom "OnFleek" Kim. Seong-hyoek "Kuzan" Lee was the MVP for Dynamics in their second-map win.
The 10-week LCK Summer Split features a double round-robin format with best-of-three matches.
When play concludes, the top five teams in the standings will advance to the playoffs. The regular-season winner will receive a bye into the finals while the second- and third-place teams earn byes into Round 3 and Round 2, respectively.
Week 8 continues Saturday with last-place SeolHaeOne Prince (1-11, -18) facing third-place Gen.G (9-3, +12) and first-place DRX (11-2, +13) meeting fifth-place Afreeca Freecs (7-5, +4).
