The second match saw the two team's faceoff on Train with B.O.O.T-d[S] starting off with a 6-round streak before finally letting CyberZen open their scoring as well. CyberZen dropped the next round but quickly countered with a flurry of rounds to close up on the lead. B.O.O.T-d[S] managed to clinch the last few rounds before halftime.
The latter half of the match did not see any action from the side of CyberZen as B.O.O.T-d[S] quickly managed to wrap up the match with a 6-round streak, winning the match with a score of ‘16-5’.
B.O.O.T-d[S] managed to win the lower bracket final ‘2-0’ against CyberZen and move on to face GOSU in the grand finals for the second time in the playoffs.
