Boom Esports defeated Execration 2-0 in the lower bracket semifinal of the TI10 SEA qualifier to keep their hopes of making it to The International 10 alive.

BOOM Esports won the first game by a close margin, while in the second match, they seemed to be done with the late game drama, playing a perfect game to take the win. While Execration exits the TI10 SEA qualifier, BOOM Esports gets the chance at redemption as they now play TNC Predator in the lower bracket final.
BOOM Esports vs Execration: Match Recap and Highlights
Game 1 was a nip and tuck affair with networth not taking a side most of the time. As teamfighting continued for quite some time, both teams took blows. During situations like these, a single final teamfight is crucial, which BOOM Esports won. A safe lane Luna enabled them to charge down the midlane and go all in for Execration's Ancient, winning the game in 46 minutes.
Game 2 saw BOOM deliver an impressive performance. As the laning stage got over, they displayed great map movements, as well as impressive spellcasting to win the teamfights. Execration fought back fiercely but BOOM Esports refused to give Palos’ Spectre any breathing room for a comeback, winning the game in 36 minutes.
Here are some highlights of the series.
The only series of the day that did not near or surpass the 60-minute mark was this one. Both teams had played grueling games earlier in the day, but BOOM Esports had the right drafts, the composure, and the tenacity for the series win. Mikoto's Ember Spirit and Templar Assassin played a huge role in both games, leading his team to a lower bracket final.
