ONIC PH overpowered Origen Esports, 2-0, to enter the upper bracket of the Sibol Mobile Legends: Bang Bang national team selection on Thursday afternoon.
The M3 World Championship silver medalists flat-out dominated Origen Esports in Game One, putting on a 15-3 victory in just nine minutes and 33 seconds of game time.
Allen “Baloyskie” Baloy’s Lylia spearheaded the masterful outing with five kills and 10 assists without a single death while Jaylord “Hatred” Gonzales (Lancelot), who slid back to his old role, dazzled with seven kills and four assists against just one death.
Origen Esports kept up in the early game, but a turnback by Gerald “Dlarskie” Dlar (Uranus) and Baloyskie in the middle lane turned the once-tight match into a lopsided one.
ONIC PH then averted an upset in Game Two, securing the bag via a 16-11 win in 17 minutes and 38 seconds.
After a lopsided Game One affair, Origen Esports brought out an unorthodox five centered on Carlos “Choko” Miguel’s Carmila that gave ONIC PH a harder time than the first bout.
Origen Esports even threatened to take over the game entering the seven-minute-mark with Choko picking up a Maniac on the top lane. That, however, was not enough as ONIC PH’s composure prevailed in the latter part of the match.
Hatred (Ling) topped the match with five kills and 10 assists against just two deaths while Dlarskie (Esmeralda) had an immaculate 5-0-5 stat line.
With the victory, ONIC PH has advanced to the lower bracket while sending Origen Esports down the losers’ bracket.
Earlier in the day, RSG PH sent Omega Esports down the lower bracket via a 2-1 victory.
