Work Auster Force put up a huge stand in Game Three to complete the 2-1 come-from-behind victory against Execration in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Seven regular season, Sunday night.
With no turrets left on their side, Work Auster Force pulled a Hail Mary against Execration in Game Three — taking out all but one near the 22-minute mark to turn the game in their favor.
The rookies then made a play for the Luminous Lord, while Renz “Renzio” Cadua (Barats) and Joshua “Ch4knu” Mangilog tried to contest.
Dylan “Unravel” Catipon (Jawhead) ended up securing the objective while his entire squad took down Renzio and Ch4knu.
With the two out for a minute, Work went on to complete the epic comeback and bag the series.
“Sa Game Three ano, inexpect talaga namin na ganun yung mangyayari. Mabubugbog talaga [kami] sa early pero alam kasi namin pang late game talaga yung hero namin,” said Work coach John “Lift” Ruiz.
Trailing by as much as 6k in the gold department, Execration rose back from the dead to trip Work Auster Force in Game One.
A skirmish down the bottom lane produced casualties left and right, but Kielvj “Kielvj” Hernandez’s Ling proved to be the winner of that scenario as he scored a double kill on Patrick “rTzy” Ibarra’s Claude and Clarense “Kousei” Camilo’s Alice to turn things around for Execration.
The MPL-Philippines Season Six third placer snowballed from there, winning clash after clash to secure the victory.
Work Auster Force then fought back in Game Two through the Pharsa of Kousei, taking a tight 13-11 win to even the series at 1-all.
Work kept the second place in Group A with 17 points through a 6-4 card while Execration remained at the fourth spot in a tight Group B with 12 points and a 3-6 standing.
