Since I can't watch the video(due to internet data caps) let me guess: The Spencer was winning-up until he had to reload, then the Trapdoor caught and surpassed it.

They did 7 shots standing, then 7 shots prone.  The Trapdoor was close enough that both agreed that in that time period, they would rather have the Trapdoor.  Fewer parts, higher reliability, better sustained fire.
