Coming off a tough loss yesterday, ONIC PH vented its ire on Nexplay EVOS via a clean 2-0 sweep in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Eight, Sunday night.
ONIC PH strengthened its grip of second place with 22 points through a 7-4 win-loss standing.

It was a close game for both squads up until the eight-minute mark, where Gerald “Dlarskie” Trinchera’s Paquito dove inside Nexplay EVOS’ outer middle turret and took down Tristan “Yawi” Cabrera (Jawhead) and Jeniel “Haze” Bata-anon (Selena).
Dlarskie nabbed the SMART 5G MVP with six kills and six assists against one death in the 20:37-minute, 22-16 Game Two victory. Meanwhile, Kairi, who went berserk in the opening match, finished with eight kills and six assists against three deaths.
“Kaya po namin pinick yun [Karina] kasi bigla lang pumasok sa isip ni Kairi, gusto raw niya gamitin,” explained Markyyyyy.
Kairi’s Ling snowballed early in Game One, leaving Nexplay EVOS in the dust as he led his team to a dominant 10-2 win in just 11 minutes and nine seconds to take the early series advantage.
ONIC will square off against the playoff-bound Blacklist International next Sunday at 4:00 PM while Nexplay EVOS will open the league’s sixth week on Friday against ECHO at 6:00 PM.
