Mark “Hadess” Lazaro played clutch as ECHO eliminated Aura Esports via a reverse 2-1 sweep in the opening round of the ONE Esports Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Invitational on Tuesday afternoon.
In the all-important Game Three, ECHO was able to force Aura out of the Luminous Lord pit entering the 25-minute mark with Jankurt “KurTzy” Matira (Paquito) and Christian “Rafflesia” Fajura zoning out.
Rafflesia ended up with six assists and three deaths while KurTzy added a kill and six assists against three deaths.
On the other hand, High’s 9-3-3 Ling performance went for naught as Aura once again suffered a first-round exit at the hands of the same team.
Hadess finished with 10 kills, three deaths, nine assists, along with two game-changing Lord steals that kept and won ECHO the crucial match. Rafflesia also provided the team with well-timed initiations on his Chou, ending up with four kills and 17 assists against four deaths.
ECHO will next go up against the winner of the RSG PH-RSG SG match on Thursday.
