Bennyqt’s Lunox rises as Aura PH outlasts Omega in marathon MPL playoffs match


Benedict “Bennyqt” Gonzales’s Lunox provided the damage in the come-from-behind Game Five win as Aura PH gutted out a nail-biting 3-2 victory against Omega Esports to advance to the upper bracket finals of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Seven playoffs, Wednesday night.

The former Execration core put up a game-high 11 kills and three assists against just three deaths to win the SMART MVP award in the match that lasted for 36 minutes and 12 seconds.

A pick off on EJ “Heath” Esperanza’s Hilda allowed Aura PH to take the Luminous Lord at the 35:05-minute mark.

Salic “Hadjizy” Imam (Granger) and Jankurt “KurtTzy” Matira (Kagura) tried to salvage the win for Omega with a last-ditch attempt to steal the Luminous Lord but Mark “LORD HADESS” Lazaro (Ling) was on point on his Retribution.

Allen “Greed_” Baloy (Valir) stole the first Lord of the game which bought enough time for Aura PH to come back in the match.

LORD HADESS had three kills and seven assists against a death while Greed_ added 10 assists laced with a kill and two deaths.

Adrian “Toshi” Bacallo led the fight for Omega with six kills, four deaths, and an assist.

“Nag train talaga kami para sa mga ganitong klaseng laban and every after game, even manalo kami or matalo nag uusap usap kami then nagre-reset kami so regardless kung ano yung pinagusapan namin from the previous match nire-reset namin yung mindset nila,” said Aura PH coach Michael “Arcadia” Bocado.

Omega Esports emerged victorious over Aura PH in the longest game of the season all thanks to the clutch split pushes coming from KurtTzy’s support Benedetta.

The Season Six grand finalist secured the win after Hadjizy (Ling) and KurtTzy caught LORD HADESS’ Granger and Ashley “Killuash” Cruz’s Thamuz — who were seconds away from finishing the match.

KurtTzy nabbed the SMART MVP honors in the 18-16 victory which lasted for 46 minutes and 19 seconds with three kills, three deaths, and five assists. This was the longest game this season.

Looking to even the series, Aura PH veterans Jaypee “Jaypee” Dela Cruz (Natalia) and Greed_ (Kagura) came alive in Game Two and led the 21-8 domination.

Bennyqt’s Harith won the SMART MVP award with seven kills and six assists against just two deaths in the 18:11-minute win.MPL-PH-Season-7-Lower-brack-Aura-def-Omega-Game-2 Bennyqt's Lunox rises as Aura PH outlasts Omega in marathon MPL playoffs match ESports Mobile Legends MPL-PH News  - philippine sports news

The two-time champions then leaned on LORD HADESS’ Claude in Game Three to notch the 12-12 victory in 17 minutes and 53 seconds. He was awarded the SMART MVP award with two kills and nine assists, pulling Aura PH a game away from advancing to the upper bracket finals.

But a perfect Gloo performance from Kenneth “Kenji” Villa in Game Four threw the series to a winner-take-all Game Five. The Southeast Asian Games gold medalist had a 4-0-8 line en route to the SMART MVP award in the 17-3 win.
