The first game against Oasis at Haven ended with a 13-5 scoreline. RRQ originally trailed in the game as Oasis took five rounds in the first eight rounds of the game. Fortunately, RRQ reversed the situation with a four-round win streak to end the half in the lead 7-5. From there, it was a smooth sail in the second half as they never dropped a round on the defending side to win the game.

RRQ then continued their path of destruction at Breeze as they won the second game 13-5 yet again. RRQ simply blew aside Oasis in the first half as they only dropped a single round. After halftime, Oasis then came alive and took four rounds from RRQ. Fortunately, RRQ only needed two more rounds to win the game which they took at Rounds 17 and 18.
