The boys in red kicked off the day against Lethal Gaming in the opening game of the day. In a back and forth game, it was Lethal who managed to secure Breakout Hardpoint 250-201 to take the early advantage in the series. Infused responded, taking Crusher S&D 6-2 to level the series at 1-1. The boys in red began to fire on all cylinders on Precinct Uplink. Great slaying and clinical passing enabled the team secure a dominant 14-4 lead to grab a 2-1 series lead. The momentum was rolling for the team, as they took the following HP in convincing fashion to secure the series 3-1.

The next game against Mindfreak would be another close contest. The Australians opened the series with a close 250-212 match on Retaliation HP. Moving into Throwback S&D, the game was very close between the teams but the boys in red came out on top in a round 11 decider to level the series at 1-1. Zerg and Nolson dropped double digits to grab the win for the team. Heading into Frost Uplink, it was yet another close contest, with Mindfreak taking a close victory and a 2-1 lead in the series. The Australians were looking strong in the next HP, grabbing the win in another fairly close contest. We lost the series 3-1.

After day one of the tournament, the boys in red currently sit in tied second in Group C. With one game remaining against eUnited, even a map win could decide the fate of the squad. We'll have to wait and see what happens.

GGWP to Lethal Gaming and Mindfreak. We'll be back in action tomorrow!
