SEA Games: SIBOL women’s ML reaches medal rounds; Valorant team settles for bronze

Sibol MLBB Women’s team successfully secured a spot in the semi-finals of the 32nd Southeast Asian Games in Cambodia after finishing second in the group stage on Tuesday.

Despite losing to gold medal contender Indonesia, the Philippines secured their place in the semi-finals with a dominant victory over Cambodia. The pivotal moment came in the 10th minute clash when Gwen Diagon (Arlott) scored a maniac, propelling Sibol to their opening win.

They finished second in Group A, behind their tormentors, and will now face the top seed from Group B, which includes Laos, Malaysia, and Vietnam, in a bid to reach the gold medal match.

The Sibol Women’s MLBB squad is comprised of the Smart Omega Empress stalwarts of Kaye Maerylle “Keishi” Alpuerto, Rica Fatima “Amoree” Amores, Sheen “SHINOA” Perez, Mery Christine “Meraaay” Vivero, Gwen “not ayanami” Diagon and ZOL Eastcreek mainstay Alexandra Dardo. They are coached by Mab “Bam” Unida.

On the other hand, the Sibol Valorant team failed to capitalize on their impressive performance in the group stage. They suffered a 2-0 loss against Indonesia in the semi-finals, settling for the bronze medal.

Earlier in the tournament, the Philippine representatives displayed their dominance by defeating Indonesia 13-2. However, they were unable to maintain the same momentum in the medal rounds.

Despite the bronze medal, the team still has a placement match against Vietnam. Both Vietnam and the Philippines will receive bronze medals for their performance in the event.

The Sibol Valorant team is bannered by Oasis Gaming led Brheyanne “Wild0reoo” Christ Reyes, Xavier “xavi8k” Juan, Jed “Draxii” Jamir, Nathaniel “Nexi” Cabero, George “Georggyyy” Lachica, Mark “Markyyy” Tuling and coached by Jose Carlo “Rbtx” Jamir.
