Fam143 and Armada have made it through to the closed qualifier for the Americas Minor after finishing top two in the third open qualifier.

Eighty-five teams from all over North America took part in the third open qualifier for the next Americas Minor with hopes of securing a spot in the closed stages, featuring 16 sides, eight of whom will be invited by FACEIT.

The first semi-final saw Fam143, who had defeated Levitate, take on The Entourage -- who had swept iNTACT for a spot in the semi-final. The first map of the series was Train, where the two teams fought tooth and nail in highly contested halves before Fam143 broke the 14-14 tie and rode away with the series lead.

Broken tag

The match then moved to Mirage. The Entourage got off to a great start on the CT-side in the first half with a commanding 12-3 lead going into the second. However, the sides switched and so did the momentum as Fam143 locked down the second half on the CT-side to win 13 out of 15 rounds and send The Entourage packing with a 2-0 series victory.

On the other side of the bracket, Armada sealed passage to the semi-finals after taking down RivaL in a three-map series, while Mentality swept NONAMERS across Nuke and Cache.

The second semi-final kicked off on Mirage, where a surging 12-3 half went the way of Armada, but Mentality quickly turned the tables in the second half to secure 13 rounds and force overtime. The extra rounds were a back and forth battle, but, in the end, it was Armada to take the map and the series lead.

The next map in the series was Nuke, where the two sides had a highly contested first half that saw Armada seal an 8-7 lead. However, the second half was all about Mentality's brilliant T side as they gave up just one round before running out 16-9 victors.

Armada got off to a flying start on Train, dropping just two rounds throughout the first half following a clean CT side. Mentality still tried to come back in the second half after losing the pistol, but without success as Armada would eventually lock down the map to book a spot in the closed qualifier:
