ETHEREAL kicked off their match with a 3-0 start on Mirage. Big Frames answered back on the first gun round, going 5-0 themselves. After a back and forth rest of the half, Big Frames edged the lead 8-7. Yan "PRDTR" Davtian led the way for this team, as Big Frames grinded out the Terrorist half and eeked out a 16-12 win on map one.
The ETHEREAL side didn't have much of a chance on Inferno, going down 0-9 at the start. They managed a few rounds at the end of the half, but Ryan "Church" Church stomped ETHEREAL to push his team to victory, racking up 28 kills in 20 rounds.
