Madec21 kept this same pace in the following round for an identical play to net Ferndale a third round win.
Unfortunately, Blacklick gain access to site A for free. With a 5v5 retake in order, Madec21 runs to flank again. Blacklick take note of their previous mistakes and counter the flank before they are able to do any real damage. Blacklick Valley close out the match 13-3 against Ferndale.
