ONIC PH scores come-behind-win vs RSG, remains in MPL PH top seed race


ONIC PH pulled off a 2-1 reverse sweep over RSG PH to bolster its bid of capturing the number one spot in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Eight regular season, Saturday night.

The win helped ONIC PH improve its standing to 27 points – a point behind the league-leading Blacklist International – off a 9-4 win-loss standing.

ONIC PH locked down Christian “Iy4knu” Manaog early in Game Three to take a slight advantage heading to the mid-game. RSG PH tried to fight back, but it was not enough as a well-farmed Kairi “Kairi” Rayosdelsol (Hayabusa) paved the way for ONIC PH to close out the series.

Kairi was named the SMART 5G MVP with nine kills, a death, and four assists in the 14:13-minute Game Three.MPL-PH-8-Onic-def-RSG-Game-3 ONIC PH scores come-behind-win vs RSG, remains in MPL PH top seed race ESports Mobile Legends MPL-PH News  - philippine sports news

“Habang wala siya [coach Yeb] nag tutulunga kami ng team kung paano mag da-draft this week, kung paano kami lalakas,” said team captain Allen “Baloyskie” Baloy.

RSG PH took out a disorganized ONIC PH in Game One – dissecting the second-ranked squad in the opener to seal their spot in the playoffs. EJ “Heath” Esperenza’s Ruby, who tallied 10 assists along with a death in the 15-4 win, was named the SMART 5G MVP in the 21:38-minute match.MPL-PH-8-Onic-def-RSG-Game-1 ONIC PH scores come-behind-win vs RSG, remains in MPL PH top seed race ESports Mobile Legends MPL-PH News  - philippine sports news

With RSG PH lacking the damage needed, ONIC PH pounced on the situation and took Game Two on the back of Kairi’s Hayabusa. He finished with a perfect 7-0-4 KDA line in the 13-10 Game Two victory which lasted for 17 minutes and 37 seconds.MPL-PH-8-Onic-def-RSG-Game-2 ONIC PH scores come-behind-win vs RSG, remains in MPL PH top seed race ESports Mobile Legends MPL-PH News  - philippine sports news
