As Terrorists, Pujan "FNS" Mehta & co. pushed A to win the pistol and their second round overall. A B-stack by the CIS-based team scared the North Americans in the following round, but CLG still managed to win both anti-ecos.
After losing ten rounds straight, HellRaisers called a tactical pause. It was only then that were finally able to stop CLG's momentum as they got back into the game with an A bombsite retake, closing out the match in the following round.
