Letran College came up with a statement win over erstwhile unbeaten Arellano University to gain a share of lead in the Collegiate Center for Esports Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Season 2.
With the Chiefs acting as the revelations in the opening week, it was the Knights who killed off that hype by dominating them in their meeting and shaking up the CCE leadership anew.
Joshua Dave “Fezco” Dasigao’s Akai was near perfect with a 4-1-11 kill/death/assist count as Letran swept all three matches this week to move to forge a tie with Lyceum of the Philippines University with a 4-1 record in the country’s newest Esports league.
The Knights’ lone loss came last week against the Pirates, who likewise blanked their three counterparts this week for a similar 4-1 slate after being stunned by the Chiefs.
Lyceum, hunting for a back-to-back CCE title bid, stamped its class against University of Perpetual Help System Dalta, Mapua University and College of Saint Benilde in a searing redemption week.
CCE Season 1 Most Valuable Player Mark Kenneth “Mark” de los Reyes with his Leomord (4/0/17 vs Perps) and Katarina (8/2/5 vs Mapua) as well as Ralph Joshua “Alas” Araz with Khufra (7/1/10 vs CSB) took turns in Lyceum’s 3-0 week.
But the spotlight shone the brightest on the Knights, who also smothered Emilio Aguinaldo College and Saint Benilde.
Jade Michael “ImbaDeeJade” Mercado (Clint, 6/0/6) and Rafael Carlos “Amen” Silvestre (Barats, 6/0/11) joined Dasigao in capturing MVP citations for Letran, which also got ample support from Mark Raphael “Choco Mael O” Arellano, Matthew “Matsuu” Viray, Rov Jupiter “Jupet” Valles and Kurt Patrick “Xeero” Pugao.
