MANILA - ECHO Proud make quick work of ONIC Arsenals to secure their third win in the MLBB Developmental League - Philippines (MDL-PH) Season 2, two games to none, on Tuesday.

The defending MDL-PH champions dominated the hedgehogs in Game 1, 22 kills to ten, as Jankurt "KurtTzy" Matira and James "Jeymz" Gloria had their hands on their comfort picks Pharsa and Paquito.

ECHO Proud dominated from start to end, losing only two towers and a turtle in the process with Justine "Zaida" Palma snowballs with 11 kills and eight assists with his name while only falling one time.

KurtTzy again got his hands on the Pharsa in Game 2 when ONIC Arsenals priority banned Jeymz' Paquito that contributed to 17 of 22 ECHO kills in Game 1, but Zaida took the Lancelot to counter James "Jamespangks" Mendoza's Hayabusa pick.

Jamespangks and the rest of ONIC took two of three turtles available but ECHO countered with favorable kills to give themselves a small lead.

It was in the mid game when the orcas took over, winning two lords in the process and from there snowballed their way to the ONIC Arsenals base to finish the second game in 15 minutes, 16 kills to seven.

Jeymz with the X.Borg, was hailed as the MVP with two kills and eight assists, as well as the most damage dealt among all players in the series.

ECHO Proud will try to make it 4-0 as they will face winless Blacklist Academy LTX on Wednesday, while ONIC Arsenals, down 1-1, will try to regain their momentum on Thursday against Smart Omega NEOS.
