In a post-match interview Underminer’s captian, Ng Chun 'ck'' Keat commented that the team were grateful to be given a second chance to prove themselves.
"We know who will be participating as well so we prepared as much as possible and will take every match seriously since they are in BO1s and there is always a risk of getting upset by underdogs," he said.
The series itself saw Underminer get off to an encouraging start, gaining control of the game early on and snowballing thereafter to claim a 1-0 lead in the series.
However, game two was not as easy. After losing the laning phase, Underminer were backed into a corner, but after a few tide-changing fights the balance tipped over into their favour and they managed to close out the game, taking the series 2-0.
