MPL PH: Echo sweeps half season with stunning win over AP.Bren

Echo completed a sweep of their half-season assignments with a 2-0 victory over AP.Bren Esports in Week 3 of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League (MPL) Philippines Season 12 at the Shooting Gallery Studios in Makati City on Saturday.

The Orcas now hold a 7-0 record with 18 points, which is seven points ahead of second-placed AP.Bren (3-3), currently at 11 points.

Despite the sweep, Echo’s head coach, Archie “TicTac” Reyes, was left impressed by AP.Bren’s performance, which pushed Echo to the brink of defeat before they managed to secure the win with pinpoint defensive plays.

“Ang ganda nung pinakita ng Bren ngayon. Sarap nila kalaban kasi balagbagan din eh. Nagkaroon lang kami ng magandang break nung second game kaya nagtuloy-tuloy na matalo namin sila,” Tictac said.

Frederic “Bennyqt” Gonzales spearheaded Echo’s Game 1 surge, finishing with a 7-2-5 KDA on Karrie, highlighted by a game-clinching triple kill in the 16th minute.

Alston “Sanji” Pabico (Kadita) also contributed with accurate targeting, resulting in a 6-2-11 KDA.

Echo then maintained control in Game 2 from the beginning, but AP.Bren showed signs of life after executing a 3-0 wipe following the 13th-minute lord dance.

However, after a failed base turret siege in the 14th minute, highlighted by Jaypee “Jaypee” Cruz’s (Chou) clutch defensive play, Echo responded with a 3-1 exchange, enabling the lord to advance in the bottom lane and take down AP.Bren’s base turret for the sweep.

AP.Bren will conclude their first half of the season against Blacklist International on September 24.
