Ian “Beemo” Sergio played the hero as Playbook Esports survived a tight 2-1 encounter against Smart Omega Esports in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Seven regular season, Saturday evening.
With both teams figuring in a crucial tug of war for the lord, Omega Esports looked like they turned things around in Game Three as they got a kill on Joshua “Aspect” Tating’s Granger and eventually sealed the lord, respectively.
However, Beemo (Benedetta) sneaked into Omega’s bottom lane to try and finish the match.
With only a sliver of health remaining on their throne, Adrian “Toshi” Bacallo managed to recall in time to take down the siege minion and Beemo. But that wasn’t enough as Nowee “Ryota” Macasa’s Barats stomped on the throne to end the match.
This is Playbook’s second win of the season as they now upped their tally to four points through a 2-3 standing — good for fifth in Group B.
Playbook took down turret after turret in Game One, making quick work of Omega to draw first blood in the series.
The Smart-backed squad is currently at third place of the same group with seven points and a 2-2 slate.
Laus Playbook Esports will go up next against Nexplay Esports next Saturday at 6:00 pm while Omega will try and bounce back against Aura PH this Sunday also 6:00 pm.
