Blacklist quickly dispatches H2WO-less NXPE in Sibol ML tryouts

Blacklist International made quick work of the John Paul “H2wo” Salonga-less Nexplay EVOS, 3-0, to advance to the upper bracket semifinals of the Sibol Mobile Legends: Bang Bang National Team Selection powered by SMART, Friday.

Prior to the match, H2wo was rushed to the nearest hospital after experiencing pain in his stomach. This caused almost an hour of delay which prompted the officials to hand Game One to Blacklist International.

With H2wo out, Blacklist International pounced on a Nexplay EVOS side that clearly was overwhelmed with what happened to their teammate.

Kyle “Dominic” Soto (Phoveus) went berserk for the Tier One-backed squad, leading the dominant 16-4 victory with six kills, two deaths, and one assist in 11 minutes and 31 seconds.

Nexplay EVOS went with an unorthodox Uranus jungler at the hands of EXP laner Rainiel “URESHIII” Logronio. That, however, failed to produce an outcome as Blacklist International focused its resources down the gold lane to clamp down NXP’s late-game insurance in Mariusz “Donut?” Tan’s Wanwan.

H2wo powered through in the third game, suiting up for Nexplay EVOS after being discharged from the hospital. However, that was not enough to save his team from the lower bracket.

Even with NXP’s star jungler back, Blacklist International remained dominant as ever with a 15-4 win in just 12 minutes and 39 seconds of action.

Howard “Owl” Gonzales (Brody) took charge in the win with five kills and six assists against just two death while Danerie “Wise” Del Rosario (Aldous) had four kills and an assist.
