Next map was King's Row and Coker was on Offense first. The Cobras took quick control of the point and used that momentum to push all the way to the end. Sumter was then forced to answer back with a successful push of their own, but the Cobras held strong to stop them on the first point.

Second map was King's Row and Coker started on defense. The round started off with Coker holding back UCF, but they were able to eventually move past the Cobra's defense and push through the map. Next it was Coker's turn to answer and after a few teamfights, the Cobras were able to get the payload moving. After a quick second point, they hit a roadblock right after the second point. The Cobras were not able to get past this point and UCF won the map, and the match 2-0.
