Rookie Kiel “OHEB” Soriano took the spotlight as Blacklist International cruised to its fourth-straight win after a 2-0 sweep of Nexplay Esports in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Seven regular season, Saturday afternoon.
The former Amihan player then flaunted his mastery of Alice anew in the following match, putting up eight kills and 12 assists against just one death in the 21-8 Game Two domination.
The Kristoffer “BON CHAN” Ricaplaza-coached took back the pole position in Group B with 11 points through a clean 4-0 record.
Nexplay Esports brought out the Franco card in the opener, but Tristan “Yawi” Cabrera — who is currently the top one Franco player in the world — had a hard time locking down members of Blacklist International no thanks to the added mobility given by Mark “ESON” Gerardo’s Rafaela and Johnmar “OhMyV33NUS” Villaluna’s Mathilda.
The release-control tactic of Blacklist International proved to be too much for Nexplay’s high-tempo lineup as the Tier One-backed squad took the win in 16 minutes and 25 seconds.
Blacklist then sealed the series with another Granger-Alice combo from Danerie “Wise” Del Rosario and OHEB.
Nexplay Esports will remain at the fourth spot in the same group with six points and a 1-4 win-loss card.
Blacklist International looks to extend their unbeaten run against Work Auster Force Sunday at 2:00 pm while Nexplay Esports will try to break their slump against Cignal Ultra on the same day at 4:00 pm.
