Work Auster Force’s late wipeout in Game Two capped off its 2-0 sweep of ONIC PH in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Season Seven, Friday evening.
The top team in the MPL qualifiers bolstered its bid to claim one of the upper bracket slots in Group A with 21 points through a 7-4 standing.
After a tug of war for the Luminous Lord entering the 17-minute mark, Work managed to get a kill on Jaylord “Hate” Gonzales’ Roger to kick things off.
Though Patrick “rTzy” Ibarra’s Kagura fell just a second after Hate, Daniel “Chuuu” Chu (Lancelot) took down Jay “Jay” Torculas’ Grock to tip the scales to Work Auster Force.
Dylan “Unravel” Catipon (Khufra) soon went down as Kairi “Kairi” Rayosdelsol (Mathilda) and Gerald “Dlar” Trinchera (Lapu Lapu) ganged up on the Work tank to make it a three-on-three fight.
However, Work still went out victorious as Clarense “Kousei” Camilo (Pharsa) and Frediemar “3MarTzy” Serafico (Benedetta) cornered Kairi between the middle lane towers while Chuuu singlehandedly took down Christian “Iy4knu” Manaog (Chang’e) and Dlar, respectively, near the river to cap off the match.
Chuuu, along with Kousei and 3MarTzy, marched down the middle lane to finish the game.
ONIC PH, led by Dlar’s Benedetta, fought back late but it was not enough as Work Auster Force trumped their unorthodox Lapu Lapu support pick.
3MarTzy, who finished with six kills and seven assists without a death, was named the SMART MVP of Game One. He also took a total of 124,070 damage for Work throughout the match.
“Ano po, nakakakuha kami ng space and vision po kapag nakakapag super cut po siya [3MarTzy] ng lane,” said rTzy on the Game One win.
The MPL-Philippines Season Six fourth placer suffered its fourth loss in 10 outings and now has a 6-4 card to remain at the third place of the same group — tied with Bren Esports.
Work Auster Force looks to solidify its upper bracket bid against defending champion Bren Esports tomorrow at 7:30 pm while ONIC PH will try to up its slate against Nexplay Esports on Sunday also at 7:30 pm.
