ECHO dominates TNC, snaps skid in MPL PH


ECHO snapped its three-game skid after a dominant 2-0 sweep against TNC in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Eight, Friday night.

The squad, who took an early lead in the opening week before plummeting down the standings, zoomed to the third spot with 11 points through a 3-4 standing.

“Ginawa ulit namin yung best namin sa mga practices namin and yung mindset namin,” said ECHO rookie Rion “Rk3” Kudo.

Christian “Rafflesia” Fajura’s aggressiveness on Mathilda fueled ECHO’s dominant Game One win over TNC for the early 1-0 advantage in the series.

The two-time MPL champion showed great zoning capabilities as well as excellent rotations in the opener, allowing Benedict “Bennyqt” Gonzales’ Lunox and Mark “Hadess” Lazaro’s Hayabusa to snowball in the match.

Rafflesia ended up as the SMART 5G MVP with three kills and four assists against just a death in the 8-4 Game One win in 14 minutes and 58 seconds.MPL-PH-8-Echo-def-TNC-Game-1 ECHO dominates TNC, snaps skid in MPL PH ESports Mobile Legends MPL-PH News  - philippine sports news

Come the second game, Bennyqt stole the show with his signature Chou – dominating his lane matchup against Clarense “Kousei” Camilo (Lunox) which pretty much spelled the difference for the entire game.

Showing his familiarity and experience with the hero, Bennyqt took out the TNC gold laner twice before entering the three-minute mark while also carving out the gold shield in the top tower.

Though TNC showed signs of life, it was still not enough as ECHO sealed a Luminous Lord in the 15:47-minute mark for the win.

Bennyqt, who was awarded the SMART 5G MVP, finished with two kills and two assists without a single death in the 16:59-minute Game Two win.MPL-PH-8-Echo-def-TNC-Game-2 ECHO dominates TNC, snaps skid in MPL PH ESports Mobile Legends MPL-PH News  - philippine sports news
