Losing was not an option for last year’s Valorant Champions 5th-8th place finishers caught fire in Game One at Bind, winning 13-4.

Team Secret started a 7-1 run including a Jayvee “DubsteP” Paguirigan’s quadra kill in round 5 before SBE answered with a 3-1 to be within four at the end of the half.

DubsteP isn’t finished yet as he four-killed once again in round 15. South Built was unable to answer and did not have a single round win in the second half.

Map Two at Haven was the same story for Secret as they finished the game with a 13-4 scoreline.

It was a balanced team effort for TS with all five of the players finishing with double-digit kills.

Jessie “JessieVash” Cuyco led the series with 35 kills and 11 assists for Team Secret.

With the win, Secret is now only two series wins away from the trophy.
