Killuash lifted Aura PH in Game Three to survive a tough stand by Aura Fire, 2-1, in the ONE Esports Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Invitational, Saturday evening.
With the victory, the new-look Aura PH squad will be going up against the revamped ONIC PH in the second phase of Group B.
Despite ending the match with a 2-2-6 kill-death-assist tally, Killuash made sure to show up when it mattered the most.
With all of Aura Fire’s turrets down, Killuash (Chou) popped his Way of the Dragon to secure a kill on Kabuki (Thamuz). The Indonesians were quick to react, punishing Hadess (Hayabusa) in the skirmish along with Greed_ (Hilda), who took down High (Ling) with him before going down.
Jaypee (Kagura) managed to get away from the fight with a sliver of health. Bennyqt (Esmeralda) then fought off the last three players standing from Aura Fire.
With Bennyqt keeping Qeira (Yu Zhong), VaanStrong (Luo Yi), and god1va (Minsithar) occupied, Killuash snuck right into the throne to finish the match.
Bennyqt led Aura PH with four kills, while Jaypee had three kills and an assist. Hadess, meanwhile, was limited to a kill, three deaths, and three assists.
On the other hand, High, who played phenomenally in the first two games of the series, was held to just three kills, three deaths, and four dimes.
Aura PH had the chance to close the series after taking Game One behind Jaypee’s support Harith, but fell to the Qeira-led Aura Fire in Game Two.
The Aura PH-ONIC PH rivalry will continue on international soil tomorrow at 12:00 p.m.
