MPL: ECHO gains momentary pole, demolishes TNC

Just hours after Omega Esports tied Blacklist International at the top, ECHO immediately took control of the number one spot after annihilating the also-ran TNC, 2-0, in the second round of the MPL Philippines Season 10 regular season, Saturday at the ICITE Auditorium.

This is ECHO’s fifth consecutive win of the tournament. They upped their slate to 9-2 with a league-high 23 points.

“Commended ko talaga yung mga players ko sa mga sacrifices nila. Pinaghahandaan talaga nila na makuha yung championship,” said ECHO head coach Archie “Tictac” Reyes.

ECHO handed the TNC with a 16-3 beating in Game One in just 11 minutes and 59 seconds of action.

Tristan “Yawi” Cabrera (Chou) led the demolition with a game-high 12 assists to go along with a kill and a death while Benedict “Bennyqt” Gonzales had a perfect outing, delivering six kills and six assists on Melissa.

TNC showed more fight in the second match, but it was not enough as ECHO bagged Game Two, 12-5, to take home a 2-0 sweep. Bennyqt’s gold lane Phoveus led the way with two kills and nine assists against one death in almost 15 minutes of action.

TNC, which fell to 1-11, suffered its sixth consecutive loss.

ECHO looks to extend its winning streak to six games against Blacklist International tomorrow, Sunday at 7:30 while TNC will try to end its slump against ONIC PH on Friday, also at 7:30 PM.
