SK secured a confident win over Winstrike in the semi-final of Moche XL, beating the Russian side 2-0 (16-7 Inferno, 16-7 Mirage).

The series started on Inferno, SK's map pick, with Winstrike grabbing the CT pistol after holding off a B site offensive in a 4v4 situation. The Russian side built on that, winning the anti-ecos, before grabbing the crucial first buy thanks to Savelii "jmqa" Bragin and Nikita "waterfaLLZ" Matveyev retaking A in a 2v2.

SK were 5-0 down when they managed to steal away a pistol-armor round, punishing Winstrike's aggression, and started building off of that. With a couple of consecutive rounds going their way, SK broke Winstrike's economy and built momentum, finishing the Terrorist half 9-6 up.

The Brazilian side then added on to their lead by winning the CT pistol and two followups before Aurimas "Kvik" Kvakšys and Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov turned a 2v5 around in the first buy round, making the score 7-12. However, losing the next round put Winstrike in a tough economic situation which SK capitalized on, proceeding to win the map 16-7.

SK move on to the grand final, where they will meet HellRaisers

Winstrike was once again off to a good start on the second map, Mirage, winning the Terrorist pistol and going up 3-0, even though Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo made the last round expensive as he sniped down three with the Scout. With rifles in play, SK tied the score at 3-3 with a couple of confident CT-side holds, but the match would swing back the Russians' way, with a safely played 2v1 against Marcelo "coldzera" David giving them a 7-3 lead.

Facing a mixed buy in the next round, Winstrike faltered, Fernando "fer" Alvarenga and Jake "Stewie2K" Yip secured opening kills which SK managed to convert on, starting a streak of their own. Before the end of the half Ricardo "boltz" Prass secured an anti-eco ace and his team went on to take the lead again, 8-7.

SK broke into the B site on the second pistol and after kills were traded, FalleN resolved a 1v2 to advance his team's lead and put them into the driver's seat to close out the game. In the second-half rifle rounds, FalleN's troops displayed relentless aggression, breaking into both bombsites swiftly, with Winstrike unable to hold them back at all, and the score was soon 15-7.

To close it out, on match point, fer got a double entry in ramp, taking down two enemies with a single spray of the AK-47, and his teammates followed up on it to finish the map 16-7, 2-0 for the series.

For everyone saying that SK is playing tier 3 tournaments because they can't win tier 1-2, they're playing this because SK isn't providing them space to practice and are giving them to NTC as they will be signed later, so they're going for these to get area for practice.
