VCT: Team Secret crashes out of Pacific League

Despite a rousing start, Team Secret suffered a reverse sweep, losing 2-1 to Gen.G Esports in the lower-bracket semifinal of the VALORANT Champions Tour 2023: Pacific League in Seoul, Korea on Sunday.

With this loss, Team Secret failed to secure a ticket to the VALORANT Champions Tour 2023: Masters Tokyo. However, they still have a chance to make an appearance in the VALORANT Champions 2023, which is VALORANT’s version of the World Championship, through the Last Chance Qualifiers later this year.

Team Secret had an impressive start in the series, overcoming a 6-0 deficit in Game 1 with the help of Adrian “invy” Reyes, who gained momentum in Round 7 by securing a 1-on-3 victory with KAY/O, stopping the bleeding at 6-1.

They continued their strong performance, winning eight of the next nine rounds to take a 9-7 lead, ultimately securing a 13-8 victory in the opener.

In the final frame, with Gen.G forcing an extension, Team Secret took a commanding 11-6 lead. However, their South Korean counterparts staged a remarkable comeback, winning the next six rounds and reaching match point at 12-11.

Despite Team Secret forcing an overtime at 12-12, Gen.G maintained their momentum and sealed the series with dominant wins in Round 25 and 26.

Team Secret, led by captain Jessie “JessieVash” Cristy Cuyco, includes Jim “BORKUM” Timbreza, Jayvee “DubsteP” Paguirigan, Jeremy “Jremy” Cabrera, and invy, completing the all-Filipino roster.
