11-4 down and on the Terrorist side, the Danish team had a tough fight infront of them if they wanted to stay alive in the tournament. They decided to rush the underpass area on the pistol round, but were stopped in their tracks by two waiting OpTic members.
Astralis managed to win the Tec-9 and Deagle force-buy in the following round though, allowing them to get to 12-9 before Keith "NAF" Markovic shut down an A site execute by running through the smoke wall and getting two kills.
