Three of the top CS teams in Singapore, [b]RageFaction[/b], [b]teamR[/b] and [b]Team TitaNs[/b], showed up for the first major CS tournament of 2007. The first major clash of the SAFRA League occured early during the quarter-final stage. Arch-rivals [b]teamR[/b] went up against [b]Team TitaNs[/b] in an exciting match that saw many nail-biting moments.

[b]teamR[/b] were leading 11-0 on the Terrorist side in the first half, but lost their momentum and conceded the last four rounds to [b]Team TitaNs[/b]. The half ended at 11-4 in favour of [b]teamR[/b].

[b]TitaNs[/b] continued their winning streak in the second half, gaining momentum and denying [b]teamR[/b] any victories. Just when things were looking bad for [b]teamR[/b], they went for broke. Quickly rushing TitaNs’ positions, they managed to clear them and gain a victory. [b]teamR[/b]’s morale now restored, they easily won the match. [b]teamR[/b] would later describe the rush as a “miracle”.

Meanwhile, DotA team [b]Knight-Mare[/b], the favourites to win the SAFRA League, easily defeated quarter-final opponents [b][a.H][/b]. [b]Knight-Mare[/b] has seen extensive competitive action in recent competitions including the recent [url=http://www.gamesync.net/events/intel-gaming-cup]Intel Gaming Cup[/url] 2007.

In the other quarter-final match played today, [b]Team Royal[/b] won RSC to proceed on to the semi-finals.

Only half of the quarter-final matches were played on day 1 due to time limitations. The other half will be played on Sunday, 27 May 2007 at 10 am instead. The semi-finals will then be played out at 12 pm.

The winning team of the SAFRA League for both CS and DotA will walk away with S$500 worth of cash and products as well as be seeded into the WCG Singapore National Finals. The second and third placing teams will receive S$300 and S$100 respectively.
