In the second half HellRaisers forced their game and after a while took the lead. Nevertheless, the teams were fighting until the end — 30 rounds were needed to find the strongest one. As a result, the first map was taken by Orbit who ended Dust 2 with the score of 16:14.
Cache happened to be the second map. HellRaisers started in defense and showed quite a weak play. Orbit's attack, on the contrary, was rather active. The Bulgarian five would manage to shatter HellRaisers' defense again and again. Only at the end of the first half HR found the right strategy, but it was too late. The side switching took place with the score of 10:5 in Orbit's favor. In the second half HellRaisers tried to comeback and took a few important rounds, but Orbit saved the map control. After a small round exchange the Bulgarian team came to a match point and took it. 16:10 in Orbit's favor, while HellRaisers will have to play one more match today, this time in the lower bracket's final.
