HellRaisers [1:2] ALTERNATE aTTaX
(2:16 @Cobblestone, 16:8 @Overpass, 17:21 @Cahce)
HellRaisers started the first map on the attack side, and the beginning itself was not easy at all. In the first half the team did not manage to take a simple key round and earned only one point. There were almost no chances for a comeback, but HellRaisers fought till the end and did take a decisive round, though it turned out to be not enough. ALTERNATE aTTaX confidently won the first map.
On the second map HellRaisers braced up and started to show their play. They started on the attack side again, took the first pistol and first buy rounds. In the second buy one ALTERNATE aTTaX managed to give the battle themselves, but the initiative was still in the hands of HellRaisers. At the side switching the score was 9:6 in HellRaisers' favor. The second pistol round was taken by the HR five, as well, but in the force buy one ALTERNATE aTTaX turned out to be stronger. Nevertheless, it did not stop HellRaisers from getting the needed number of rounds to win the second map.
The first half of the decider, Cache, ran in constant exchanges. Firstly, HellRaisers took the score lead, but then ALTERNATE aTTaX managed to set a draw and get a small advantage.

Kirill «ANGE1» Karasiev's comment:
«We had only a few match days between this and Minor tournaments. We were discussing the situations after the exchange, but still did not manage to practice them enough. As a result another episode of the "How you should not defend taken plans" came out. We don't have much time before America, but we will try to use it to the full, since a bootcamp is coming. Sorry us for everything, it seems we need more time to get the stability».
