A triple by Vincent "Brehze" Cayonte during Evil Geniuses’ T-side pistol round gave the North American side the lead on Nuke. The second round went all the way down to a 2vs2 afterplant situation on B, but with little actual chance to defuse the bombsite the Grayhound players decided to save. Down 0-3, a big four-kill round by Joshua "INS" Potter in the upper site got the Australian team their round on the board. Both teams then traded rounds with Ollie "DickStacy" Tierney winning a crucial 1vs1 clutch against Tsvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov which led to Grayhound taking the lead as Evil Geniuses struggled in the economic game. Despite a late push in the half by EG, it was Grayhound who took the lead at the half, 8-7.
Grayhound increased their lead winning the second pistol round, and started to get on a roll winning against the forcebuy, eco, and the first gun round, going up 12-7. Evil Geniuses started to get a footing on the half as both teams traded rounds back-and-forth, but were unable to stop Grayhound as they inched closer and closer to 16 rounds, eventually closing it out 16-10 to tally their first win in Malmö.
