Seconds from overtime

The squad managed to secure both pistol rounds and dominated many weapon rounds by doing significant utility damage on the CT side in the second half. Yet, in the last crucial round of regular time, the Danes were out-clutched, and instead of going to overtime, Spirit stole the map at the last second.
