MPL PH: Demonkite steers RSG to clean decider, grounds ONIC PH

RSG PH reclaimed the second spot after a 2-1 victory over ONIC PH in MPL Philippines Season Nine, Saturday evening.

Jhonard “Demonkite” Caranto’s Lancelot spearheaded RSG PH’s early aggression in Game Three, notching three kills and four assists in the first 10 minutes to lead the team to a 9-2 kill advantage and a 7K gold lead.

A Lord take allowed RSG PH to take down all but two ONIC PH inhibitor turrets past the 11-minute mark before eventually securing the Luminous Lord entering the 13th minute.

Demonkite ended with three kills and six assists in the crucial 14-4 Game Three triumph in 14 minutes and 40 seconds as RSG PH claimed the second spot in the standings with 13 points through a 5-2 slate.MPL-PH-9-RSG-def-ONIC-Game-3 MPL PH: Demonkite steers RSG to clean decider, grounds ONIC PH ESports Mobile Legends MPL-PH News  - philippine sports news

Playing the Johnson-Kadita strategy once more, ONIC PH was able to shut down RSG PH early in Game One, eventually taking out all of the team’s turrets except for the base.

The team, however, made a costly mistake in the end game which allowed RSG PH to come back.

Waiting for a perfect opening to initiate a clash, Allen “Baloyskie” Baloy (Johnson) found Nathanael “Nathzz” Estrologo (Esmeralda), Dexter “Exort” Martinez (Eudora), and Dylan “Light” Catipon (Franco) near RSG PH’s Serpent pit and hit them with Rapid Touchdown.

Exort managed to Flicker out to avoid contact, but Jaylord “Hatred” Gonzales (Kadita) was able to use his full combo to eliminate Exort.

RSH PH, despite losing a hero, ran over ONIC PH and bagged three kills. Kairi “Kairi” Rayosdelsol (Fanny) and Gerald “Dlarskie” Trinchera (Uranus) tried to defend, but the four-man RSG proved to be too much.

Nathzz, who used his body to block out Baloyskie’s Rapid Touchdown a couple of times, led the way with three kills and seven assists against one death in the tight 14-14 Game One win in 20 minutes and 42 seconds.MPL-PH-9-RSG-def-ONIC-Game-1 MPL PH: Demonkite steers RSG to clean decider, grounds ONIC PH ESports Mobile Legends MPL-PH News  - philippine sports news

Solid was RSG PH’s early game in Game Two with Demonkite’s Paquito securing kills on Kairi (Hayabusa) and Baloyskie (Gloo).

Timely Abyssal Arrows from Hatred (Selena), however, willed ONIC PH back to the match. A four-man wipe entering the eight-minute mark gave ONIC PH the advantage.

The MPL Philippines Season Eight grand never looked back from there.

Hatred delivered four kills and six assists without a single death in the 12-7 Game Two victory in 17 minutes and eight seconds.MPL-PH-9-RSG-def-ONIC-Game-2 MPL PH: Demonkite steers RSG to clean decider, grounds ONIC PH ESports Mobile Legends MPL-PH News  - philippine sports news

RSG PH starting middle laner Arvie “Aqua” Calderon missed the match due to fever.

ONIC PH, who dropped to 4-3, is currently tied with Nexplay EVOS at the fourth spot with 11 points each.

RSG PH looks to sweep its season match-up against Nexplay EVOS on Saturday at 4:00 PM while ONIC PH will face Blacklist International on Friday at 6:00 PM.
