B.O.O.T-d[S] beat Flash to qualify for IEM Sydney
B.O.O.T-d[S] have sealed their place at IEM Sydney 2018 after defeating Flash 2-0 in Asian closed qualifier.
With MVP PK and TYLOO already through, the third-place decider kicked off on BOOT-d[S]'s map pick, Mirage, with the Singaporean squad winning their T-side pistol. Flash responded well in a force-buy and went up 3-1, but Alikhan "w1nt3r" Kopzhanov and co. did not back down and took ten rounds into the break.
Flash began the second half vigorously, stringing five rounds together to level up the score at 10-10. After that, however, BOOT-d[S] tightened up their defence and took the map without losing any more rounds.
On Overpass, BOOT-d[S] picked up their CT pistol and followed that up with an anti-eco. In a third-round buy, YuanZhang "Attacker" Sheng clutched a 1v3, paving the way for his team to secure the lead.
The Singaporean team then picked up the pace and took a 9-4 lead, but then Flash kept themselves in it by bagging the final rounds of the half.
After switching to the Terrorist side, BOOT-d[S] further added to their lead after taking the pistol round, their third of the series, and following that up with both anti-ecos. Flash responded with a successful gun round, but the Singaporeans did not let the game slip away from them and quickly wrapped up the series.
