MSC: ECHO salvages third place

PHNOM PENH – ECHO secured a third-place finish after surviving a tough battle against the home team Burn X Flash, winning 3-2 in the battle for third place in the 2023 Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup at the Aeon Mall Mean Chey here on Saturday.

ECHO was coming off a heart-wrenching loss to ONIC Esports in the semifinals.

“Masaya pa rin naman po,” said Tristan “Yawi” Cabrera after the win. “Syempre achievement pa rin po na third place kami sa MSC at thank you pa rin sa lahat ng sumuporta. Babalik kaming malakas.”

Benedict “Bennyqt” Gonzales delivered a dominant performance on Harith, securing 10 kills and four assists without a single death in Game 1, leading ECHO to an 18-5 victory after nearly 18 minutes of intense action.

However, Burn X Flash managed to even the score in Game 2, with Mariusz “Donut” Tan leading the way. He achieved six kills and two assists with only one death on Brody in a hard-fought 10-9 win spanning 17 minutes.

Although the Cambodian team survived a backdoor play from ECHO in Game 3, the Filipinos were able to bounce back with Tristan “Yawi” Cabrera initiating a game-saving combo of Tyrant’s Revenge and Tyrant’s Rage, bringing the series to a decider.

ECHO sealed the victory with a decisive 12-3 win in Game 5 after almost 14 minutes of gameplay.

Burn X Flash’s fourth-place finish marks the highest achievement for any Cambodian squad in a Moonton-sanctioned international event.
