HellRaisers [2:0] Gambit @bo3
(16:5 @duts2, 16:3 @cobblestone)
The first map was the enemy's pick, Dust 2. Nevertheless, both teams play it often and strongly, so the game was to be close. HellRaisers started in defense and demonstrated a rather strong side — they took all key rounds, and even the first pistol round came to our team. Gambit won only four rounds, which is definitely not enough for this map. After the side switching HellRaisers simply finished off the rival, having lost only one round. 16:5 is the result of the first map.
The second map was Cobblestone, where Gambit decided to play in defense, and that choice was a mistake. Having started on the attack side, HellRaisers got a series of seven rounds, and only on the eight try Gambit did take the first point. Nevertheless, they didn't manage to turn around the course of the game. HellRaisers had taken 12 rounds before the end of the first half, and after the side switching didn't leave any chances to the enemy for a comeback. 16:3 is a real mopping up by HellRaisers.
