Eman “Emann” Sangco and Kenneth “Kenji” Villa finally made their RSG PH debut, leading the team to a 2-0 victory over RSG SG in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Invitational, Wednesday.
“For the RSG PH side, we really didn’t get the best result during the regular season. And so for this [tournament], I wanted to try our other reserve players which are Kenji, Emann, and also Exort. And then luckily it successfully worked out,” said RSG PH coach Brian “Panda” Lim.
The Filipinos put up a flawless performance in the opener, dominating the Singaporeans via a 12-2 victory in just 11 minutes and nine seconds.
Early rotations from Jhonard “Demonkite” Caranto (Balmond) and EJ “Heath” Esperanza (Mathilda) along with the gold garnered by Emann (Natan) propelled RSG PH to an early snowball.
Demonkite, who had a Maniac mid-game, finished with nine kills and an assist without a single death in the Game One win.
RSG PH then showed the same intensity in Game Two. They whipped their Singaporean counterparts through an 18-4 victory in 13 minutes and seven seconds.
The MPL Philippines Season Eight Best Rookie finished with eight kills and eight assists against just two deaths on Karina. Meanwhile, Heath’s Rafaela collected two kills, a death, and 12 assists in the Game Two victory.
Emann (Claude), on the other hand, ended up with six kills, a death, and six assists for RSG PH.]
RSG PH will go up against fellow Filipino squad ECHO tomorrow.
