Sibol’s ‘EnDerr’ dominant in SEAG Starcraft, advances to finale

Caviar “EnDerr” Acampado made sure to give the home fans something worth celebrating as the local Starcraft II star swept the group stages to head into the winners’ final of the 30th Southeast Asian Games, Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

Acampado ran roughshod on the visiting teams, beating Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, and Thailand, Indonesia, respectively, to top the Pool B of Starcraft II event.

Meanwhile, Acampado’s counterpart Justin “Nuks” Santos tallied a 2-3 record and finished fourth in Pool A. Santos will go through the playoff bracket.

On the other hand, after a lopsided Game One lost against Thailand, the Sibol squad brought the fight in Game Two to settle for a 1-1 draw, to cap off the group stage of the Mobile Legends Bang Bang tournament.

“May line-up kasi kaming pinapractice, tinry naming gamitin and hindi siya nag-work. Wala, na-snowball kami eh. Sobrang lamang nung kalaban kasi magandang hero din ‘yung pinick nila. Nung game two, back to basics lang kami kung saang komportableng hero kami,” said Angelo Kyle “Pheww” Arcangel, who played as the team’s marksman in the second game.

Arcangel tallied an impressive stat line of seven kills, one death, and two assists in just 11:56 minutes of play, steering Sibol’s domination of the Thais in the gold department, 43,003-30,015.

Karl Gabriel “KarITzy” Nepomuceno (Esmeralda), Kenneth Jiane “Kenji” Villa (Thamuz), Angelo Sancio “Lusty” Castromayor (Xborg), and Jeniel “Haze” Bata-anon also made huge contributions in the lopsided Game Two victory.

Sibol figured in a slow start against Indonesia in their opener, dropping Game One. They eventually scored the equalizer in the second match of the best-of-two series, settling for a draw.

The team then flaunted their dominance behind Karl Gabriel “KarITzy” Nepomuceno who spearheaded Sibol’s 2-0 rout of Laos.

Sibol ended the group stage with a total of four points, and will enter the playoffs through the lower bracket.

On the other hand, Jacinta “Jia” Dee Hearthstone Dee and Dustin “WaningMoon” Mangulabnan both recorded 2-3 records in their respective brackets in the Hearthstone event. The two will miss the playoffs.

The playoffs for all three events will be held on December 6, Friday, at the same venue.
