SEA Games: Sibol WR completes redemption tour, pockets gold

SIBOL’s Men’s Wild Rift Team asserted their mastery of Vietnam as they rampaged through a 3-1 win in the grand finals to clinch the gold in the 32nd Southeast Asian Games in Cambodia on Sunday.

The Philippine representatives completed the tournament undefeated after taking down Singapore in the preliminaries and surviving Vietnam in the upper bracket finals to secure their place in the finals.

This is the Philippines’ 14th gold in this year’s regional meet.

Sibol scored four unanswered kills to open the series then leaned on their mechanics to secure the 14th-minute Baron Nashor and take commanding control of the match.

They completed the dominant display with a 3-0 pick-off in the 15th minute to take the opener, 1-0.

With momentum on their side, Sibol continued to control Game 2 from the early game and used a 16th-minute 3-0 pick-off to secure the Baron Nashor and mount a game-winning Nexus siege by the 19th minute.

After a disastrous Game 3 that saw them squander a slim early to midgame lead, Sibol made sure to leave no stones unturned in Game 4 with a superb mechanical display during a 17th-minute dragon contest to pick off two enemies and complete the gold-clinching Nexus siege in the ensuing play.

The Sibol Wildrift Team is bannered by Nigma Galaxy mainstays Golden Hart Dajao, Gerald Gianne Gelacio, Reniel, Angara, Aaron Mark Bingay, Chammy Paul Nazarrea, and Justine Ritchie Tan with head coach Van Matthew Alfonso.

Sibol WR missed out on a podium finish last year.
