AcadArena: Ateneo eliminates MSU, sets up rivalry finals vs La Salle in Valorant

Ateneo de Manila University claimed the last grand finals spot in the Valorant Alliance Games by Acad Arena after completing the reverse sweep against Mindanao State University – Iligan Institute of Technology, 2-1, in the lower bracket finals on Sunday.

LG Terra will be up against De La Salle University’s Viridis Arcus for the first-ever Valorant LAN event in the Philippine collegiate scene.

Unlike the first two games of the series that saw close encounters, Game Three at Ascent was total domination from the gamers of Katipunan, taking the 13-3 victory.

MTE Excalibur was looking to accomplish another come-from-behind win once again as they were trailing 9-3 at the end of the half.

Come round 13, RD Moses (Astra) opened the second half with a quadra-kill using a Frenzy to be within double digits early.

Ateneo then pulled off an eco-round win in the 15th frame to further bury MSE, they now trailed by nine, 12-3.

With no more option but to force buy, Mindanao State had a broken buy in round 16. And as expected, the gun disadvantage was too much for them. LG Terra capitalized with tiny securing a triple-kill before securing the final ticket to CONQuest.

Ateneo popped off with all of them breaching the double-digit kill mark, but RD Matteo was the clear match MVP with 18 kills and 10 assists.

For MSU, jessieNASH finished with 13 markers.

Mindanao State took Game One at Haven with a come-from-behind 15-13 win in overtime.

Game Two was another neck-and-neck affair with Ateneo claiming the 16-14 overtime dub.
