MPL PH: Demonkite, Iy4knu lift RSG to reverse sweep of ECHO for solo third


Jonard “Demonkite” Caranto and Christian “Iy4knu” Manaog joined hands in RSG PH’s 2-1 reverse sweep of ECHO in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Eight, Saturday night.

With the win, RSG PH strengthened its hold of the third spot with 16 points through a 7-3 win-loss record while ECHO remained at the fourth spot with 14 points off a 4-6 standing.

Iy4knu was crowded by ECHO to start Game Three but still had the last laugh after putting up eight kills and three assists against one death while Demonkite took charge in the early game with five kills and five assists against just one death.

ECHO tried to take out Iy4knu early in the match, however, EJ “Heath” Esperanza’s Rafaela managed to keep the former ONIC PH gold laner safe in time for him to take over the entire match.

Iy4knu was named the SMART 5G MVP in Game Three in the dominant 19-6 win in 15 minutes and eight seconds – the shortest in the series.MPL-PH-8-RSG-PH-def-ECHO-Game-3 MPL PH: Demonkite, Iy4knu lift RSG to reverse sweep of ECHO for solo third ESports Mobile Legends MPL-PH News  - philippine sports news

“Sobrang daming changes ngayon and sobrang hirap mag adjust kasi ang hirap hanapin ng tempo ng laro, kung saan puwedeng maperfect yung mga heroes ganun,” said Demonkite after the victory. “Kaya mag expect sila na mas lalo pa naming paparamihin yung hero pool namin.”

After a nip and tuck affair, ECHO showed great composure in Game One to take an early one-to-nothing advantage over RSG PH.

RSG PH took the lead after securing the first Lord of the match, but come to the second Lord, ECHO turned things around after taking down Iy4knu’s Natan and Demonkite’s X.Borg which gave them a free shot at the Luminous Lord.

ECHO ran the same composition in Game Two, but this time around, RSG PH got its much-needed boost from Demonkite’s X.Borg to send the series to a deciding Game Three.

The rookie jungler finished with nine kills and six assists without a single death to lead the 18-10 Game Two win which ran for 21 minutes and two seconds.MPL-PH-8-RSG-PH-def-ECHO-Game-2 MPL PH: Demonkite, Iy4knu lift RSG to reverse sweep of ECHO for solo third ESports Mobile Legends MPL-PH News  - philippine sports news
