Jaylord “Hate” Gonzales dealt his former team a heartbreaking loss, leading ONIC PH to a tight 2-1 victory over Execration in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Seven regular season, Thursday night.
This is the third-straight victory for ONIC PH, who is currently at the third spot in Group A with 12 points and a 5-2 record.
Execration was seconds away from securing the Game One win, but a late entrance from Jaylord “Hate” Gonzales’ Ling turned the game around in just a blink.
Execration, after securing the lord, made a siege on ONIC PH’s camp and eliminated all of their turrets except for the base.
And just when they’re about to end the match, Hate came out of nowhere to save the day for ONIC — scoring a crucial Maniac to completely shake off Execration.
“Yung Game One po, yung picks namin alam naming lugi kami pero may isang hero po kami na inaasahan na pang late game which is yung Chang’e nga po,” said ONIC PH team captain Jay “Jay” Torculas.
“Tapos nung umabot na ng late game alam namin na kayang kaya na namin sila sa clash. Kaya iwas errors na lang ginawa namin then nung may clash na nagkaroon sila ng error tinake na namin siya as opportunity para i-end yung game,” he further explained.
Not wanting to go down without a fight, Joshua “Ch4knu” Mangilog went back to his old ways — setting up multiple eye-popping plays with Atlas to lead Execration’s Game Two win.
ONIC PH then leaned on rookie Marky “Markyyyyy” Capacio — who made his first appearance of the season — in the nip-and-tuck Game Three.
Markyyyyy’s Harith constantly invaded Execration’s jungle camp in the late game, securing buff after buff to make life hard for Kielvj “Kielvj” Hernandez’s Ling.
Execration (3-4) is currently tied with Nexplay Esports (3-5) in the third seat of Group B with 10 points each.
ONIC PH will next face the struggling Cignal Ultra tomorrow at 6:30 pm while Execration looks to bounce back against Blacklist International at 5:00 pm on the same day.
