Bren Esports kept its top seed hopes alive after snapping Omega Esports’ three-game winning streak, 2-0, in the final week of the MPL Philippines Season 10 regular season, Friday at the ICITE Auditorium.
The former world champions upgraded its standing to 8-5 to tie ONIC PH (7-6) at the fourth spot with 21 points each.
“We’re still trying to aim for the upper bracket spot para secure kami sa next round. Kapag hindi ka kasi nag upper bracket single elimination lang e, so mas secure talaga kapag top four,” said Bren Esports assistant coach Paulo “Pauloxpert” Munsayac.
“Talagang naka-focus yung mga bata, focus pa rin, 100 percent, full throttle pa rin even for our next series against Nexplay. Don’t expect us to slow down,” he added.
Entering the 11th minute of Game One, Rowgien “Owgwen” Unigo (Atlas) caught Dean “Raizen” Sumagui’s Balmond near Omega Esports’ Molten Fiend pit which kick-started a clash that saw Stephen “Super Marco” Requitano (Melissa) take out Joshua “Ch4knu” Mangilog (Grock).
With their roamer out, Omega Esports allowed Bren Esports to take the first Lord of the game without contest. The latter never looked back and led by as much as 10K in the gold department before sealing the win at the 17th minute.
Super Marco once again had a flawless outing for Bren Esports, scoring four kills on top of an assist while Owgwen finished with a game-high nine assists in the 10-4 Game One victory.
Bren Esports secured five kills during the 10th minute Lord fight of Game Two to take advantage over Omega Esports and eventually win the game. Like in the opening match, Bren Esports never gave the opposing side a chance to comeback and ended the game in just 12 minutes.
Kyle “KyleTzy” Sayson (Julian) four kills and eight assists against two deaths in the 15-4 Game Two triumph while Owgwen had a perfect 2-0-10 KDA line.
The SMART-backed squad, who played its final game in the eliminations, dropped to 8-6 but remained tied with Blacklist International (7-4) at the second spot with 22 points apiece.
Bren Esports will face the also-ran Nexplay EVOS tomorrow, Saturday at 5:00 PM.
