SCARZ Absolute stun VG.Flash; Renegades beat B.O.O.T-d[S]

SCARZ Absolute and Renegades are through to the Group A winners' match at the Asia Minor after moving past VG.Flash and BOOT-d[S], respectively.

The opening match in London, pitting a VG.Flash side with a stand-in against a SCARZ Absolute team attending their first Minor, began with the Japanese squad strolling to a 5-0 lead on the Terrorist side with a series of fast executes.

VG.Flash then finally got on the board after denying a 1v3 clutch from Tomoaki "⁠crow⁠" Maruoka, and they followed that up with another round. SCARZ Absolute responded with a straight B push, setting themselves up for another great run and an 11-4 half.

SCARZ Absolute through to the winners' match

VG.Flash came from the break a much livelier side and won seven of the first eight rounds of the half, bringing the deficit to a solitary round. SCARZ Absolute would not let the game slip away, however, and tightened up their defence. With Koji "⁠Laz⁠" Ushida stepping up with the AWP, the Japanese side put together a string of rounds to seal a convincing victory in London.

The following match, headlined by Renegades, began with some stunning individual actions, the first of which from Benedict "⁠Benkai⁠" Tan, who clutched a 1v2 in the pistol round with a CZ spraydown to put BOOT-d[S] in the lead. After buying in the third round, the Australians got on the board for the first time thanks to a quad-kill from Joakim "⁠jkaem⁠" Myrbostad, who would follow it up with a 1v3 clutch.

Renegades took advantage of BOOT-d[S]'s poor economy and jumped out to a three-round lead. But the rest of the half was all about the Singaporeans' water-tight defence as they shut down any chances of Renegades stringing rounds together, bringing the deficit to 7-8.

jkaem led the Renegades to a convincing win

The Australian team further added to their lead after taking the pistol round and went on another streak to increase their lead to five. A triple kill from Nevin "⁠splashske⁠" Aw then gave BOOT-d[S] their first round of the half, but Renegades immediately regained control of proceedings, stringing four rounds together en-route to a comprehensive win.
