Having planted in the first round, eUnited forced and a triple with an AK from Brandon "Ace" Winn leaving it in a 4vs2 made it look like eUnited could take the second round but a triple by Ethan "Ethan" Arnold kept his team in charge.

The success would be short-lived, however, as NRG won the following round and got the economic advantage back on their side.

eUnited managed to stay alive, however, winning the second pistol round with a triple by Michael "dapr" Gulino. Having lost the following eco, NRG were then able to win the first gun round after opening up the A site and planting the bomb. NRG were then able to get on match point 15-6, but eUnited, with a CZ buy, managed to play a fast round to stay alive. Ultimately, however, it was NRG who sealed the deal, 16-9, to clench a spot in the playoffs.
