HellRaisers [2:0] Vexed Gaming
(16:14 @Inferno, 16:14 @Cobblestone)
On the first map HellRaisers started on the defense side, and quite confidently took a pistol round. Though Vexed Gaming managed to win back right in the first buy round. A rounds exchange lasted almost the entire first half, which ended with a small advantage of HellRaisers. In the second one HellRaisers had to do their best — the team failed the beginning of the attack side and had to catch up with the rival. The end of the first map made the fans of both teams nervous — the score was 15:14, and HellRaisers had a force-buy, while Vexed Gaming did not have enough money for a complete buy. HellRaisers skilfully took the last round and got the victory on the first map.
HellRaisers started Cobblestone on the attack side and quite easily took another pistol round, but did not manage to cope with the rival in the first buy-round again. Vexed Gaming seized the initiative for a little and took five rounds in a row, after which HellRaisers rapidly caught up with the rival and leveled the score. A rounds exchange happened, which lasted until the side switching. HellRaisers took the defense side at the 8:7 score in their favor. The second pistol round ended in HellRaisers' favor, but Vexed Gaming managed to take the force-buy and even took the lead by a few rounds. The end of the second map was some kind of the continuation of the first map's ending. A temporary draw, 14:14, both teams had no money for a buy in the next round. In the intensive fight HellRaisers beat their rival in this round and without any problem took the match-point. The final score of the meeting is 2:0 in HellRaisers' favor.
