Tiebreaker Times Haze leads SGD to bounce back win over Blacklist in MPL ESports Mobile Legends News  ULVL (Mobile Legends) Toshi Sunsparks Sterling Global Dragons Riddler Rafflesia KIL LER Jaypee Honda Beast Haze Greed Edward Blacklist International Basic 2020 MPL-PH Season

Coming off a deflating loss against defending champion Sunstar, Sterling Global Dragons-Omega vented their frustrations on Blacklist International, taking a 2-0 series sweep to move up to the fifth place of the Mobile Legends Bang Bang Professional League (MPL-PH), Friday. 

Despite experiencing technical difficulty in the opening game of the series, the Dragons were able to keep their composure intact and take a commanding 1-0 lead against BI behind SEA Games gold medalist and SGD playmaker Haze.

Blacklist, though, did not go down without a fight. The Tier One-backed squad came out with guns blazing, keeping toe-to-toe against the Dragons on the second game.

Unfortunately for them, Haze (Atlas) carried over his momentum from the previous match. He popped a three-man fatal link which brought down Riddler (Bruno), KIL LER (Uranus), and Edward (Kagura), giving the Dragons a spike in the gold department, 16,491-13,278, early in the game.

Blacklist’s Honda Beast (Kaja) initiated a clash at the bottom lane, taking down Toshi (Esmeralda) to wipe SGD’s main source of power off the map. However, Haze sneaked around the back lane and unleashed a four-man fatal link to completely shut off Blacklist.

With the victory, SGD pushed its standing to 5-3 with a total of four points – good for fifth place while BI slid down to the sixth spot with a 4-4 win-loss slate.

Haze finished the match with four kills, 11 assists, and one death. Meanwhile, core players Hadjizy (Claude) and Toshi combined for a total of eight kills and 13 assists.

In the second game of the evening, reigning kings of MPL-PH Sunsparks spoiled Basic’s return as they handed ULVL a 2-0 beating.

Sunsparks climbed up to the third spot behind BREN Esports and ONIC PH, respectively, with 10 points and 6-2 record. On the other hand, ULVL fell to eighth place with a 2-6 card (-7).
