MPL: EMANN provides timely sub as RSG averts Bren upset

Eman “EMANN” Sangco subbed in Game Three to save RSG PH against Bren Esports, 2-1, in the MPL Philippines Season 10, Saturday at the ICITE Auditorium.

After sitting out the first two games of the series, EMANN was subbed in for Clarence “Kousei” Camilo and provided immediate impact on his Irithel in Game Three. The reigning MSC finals MVP poured six kills and 13 assists against two deaths.

A four-man wipe in the 14th minute allowed RSG PH to secure the second Lord without contest. Demonkite then scored a triple kill in another four-man wipe in the final siege to help the team seal the series.

“EMANN was always playing in the lineup before, Kousei played better this week so he was in the first lineup. We also decided that we need to test their skills but we need to test them in the tournament,” said RSG PH head coach Brian “Panda” Lim.

“It’s not about their performance if they do well in the tournament, it’s also really about how you like the pressure, the communication,” he added.

With Game One still at a standstill, RSG PH went for the first Lord of the contest with Demonkite (Balmond) securing the objective through a crucial Retribution.

RSG PH then took out Vincent “Pandora” Unigo’s Paquito and Angelo “Pheww” Arcangel’s Cecillion during the siege to solidify its lead entering the 11th minute of the match.

The defending MSC champs never looked back from there, scoring a four-man wipe near the 15th minute to finish off Bren Esports.

Nathanael “Nathzz” Estrologo (Esmeralda), who missed the team’s last two assignments, spearheaded the 13-3 Game One win with three kills, a death, and eight assists while Demonkite had a 7-0-4 KDA line. Dylan “Light” Catipon, meanwhile, recorded a game-high 11 assists.

After a subpar outing in Game One, Pheww stepped up in Game Two, scoring four kills and two assists in the first seven minutes to give Bren Esports an early 7-3 advantage in kills and a 3K lead in gold.

Bren Esports, just like what RSG PH did in Game One, ran away from there and bagged a 16-7 win in 13 minutes and 54 seconds. The M2 World champion delivered six kills and seven assists against one death.

The defending MPL Philippines champion improved its win-loss standing to 2-2 while Bren Esports, who suffered its third consecutive loss, dropped to 1-4 standing.

RSG PH looks to sustain its momentum against the skidding Nexplay EVOS tomorrow, Sunday at 6:00 PM while Bren Esports will return on Friday at 6:00 PM against Omega Esports.
