Bren repeats over NXPE, picks up first streak in MPL season


Bren Esports picked up its first streak of the season after sweeping its season matchup against Nexplay EVOS via a 2-1 result in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Eight-Philippines, Saturday.

The reigning world champions were coming off a 2-1 win against the same squad last Sunday. They improved their standing to 3-6 for nine points to remain at the seventh spot.

After a nip-and-tuck affair in the first two games, Bren Esports stomped on Nexplay EVOS in Game Three, all thanks to the early game exploits of CJ “Ribo” Ribo (Chou) and Allan “Lusty” Castromayor (Khufra).

This gave KarlTzy free reins in the jungle, logging in 1,002 gold per minute. That helped him produce a 5-1-5 stat line in the 11-6, 14:57-minute victory in Game Three.

“Nag-ano lang kami, chill lang para ‘di antukin saka para hindi mainip,” Ribo said of the delay caused by the technical timeout prior to the Game Three of the ONIC PH-Omega Esports series earlier in the day.

Bren Esports started the game waxing hot with Ribo (Thamuz) and David “FlapTzy” Canon (Baxia) controlling the side lanes. They gave Karl “KarlTzy” Nepomuceno’s Natan more than enough space to secure objectives.

However, multiple setups from Tristan “Yawi” Cabrera’s Khufra allowed Nexplay EVOS to mount a comeback. Then, come the late-game, Renejay “RENEJAY” Barcarse’s Pharsa and John Paul “H2wo” Salonga’s Yi Sun-Shin took over to steal the tight 18-16 Game One win.

Yawi was named the SMART 5G MVP in Game One with a game-high 11 assists. He also had a kill and a death in the 23:14-minute match.

The tides turned to in Game Two when the Jeniel “Haze” Bata-anon-led Nexplay EVOS took the early game by storm.

Bren Esports, however, pulled a come-from-behind win of their own through exceptional flanks from FlapTzy’s Thamuz. FlapTzy took the SMART 5G MVP with four kills, a death, and eight assists in the tight 19-18 win which ran for 21 minutes and 49 seconds.

Despite the loss, Nexplay EVOS kept the fifth spot with 11 points through a 3-5 standing.

Bren Esports will take on ONIC PH later in the day at 8:00 PM. Meanwhile, Nexplay EVOS looks to bounce back against the same squad on Sunday also at 8:00 PM.
