RSG PH forced a tie at the third spot after handing TNC its fourth-straight loss via a 2-0 sweep in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Eight, Saturday.
The team, who now stands at 5-3, forged a tie with ECHO (3-4) at the third spot with 11 points each.
“Opo, [may disiplina na] sa tulong ni coach Panda sa draft niya po, saka sa mga turo niya po sa amin,” said offlaner Nathaniel “Nathz” Estrologo after the win.
RSG PH fell early in Game One but managed to come back late all thanks to the plays set up by EJ “Heath” Esperanza’s Tigreal.
Maximizing his Conceal, Heath allowed RSG PH to scale up and even take the lead in the latter part despite the early exploits of Adrian “Toshi” Bacallo’s Beatrix down the gold lane.
In Game Two, RSG PH showed great performance in the early game which slammed the doors on TNC.
Christian “Iy4knu” Manaog’s Alice caught three TNC members inside their bottom lane inhibitor turret to complete the Game Two siege and seal the 2-0 sweep.
Iy4knu finished with six kills and three assists without a death while Jonard “Demonkite” Caranto, who spearheaded the early onslaught with his Paquito, was named the SMART 5G MVP with three kills and four assists against one death in the 13-5 win which lasted for just 11 minutes and 12 seconds.
This is TNC’s fourth-straight loss, dropping to a 2-5 record with six points at the seventh spot.
RSG PH looks to continue its winning ways against Omega Esports tomorrow, Sunday at 6:00 PM while TNC will return next week, Saturday at 4:00 PM against Blacklist International.
