MAKATI - ONIC Philippines continue to build upon their MPL Philippines Season 13 first-half momentum as they clip Blacklist International, 2-0, to end Week 3 Day 2 of the regular season.

It was their fourth straight win for the Sonics, who haven't lost a single series since conceding a first-series loss against ECHO in the first week, while Blacklist suffered their third loss of the season.

ONIC dominated the first game, getting a 14-3 dominant show in just 14 minutes, as designated roamer Jomearie "Escalera" delos Santos' Arlott put up 2/2/9 including crucial set-ups against several Blacklist members.

Frince "Super Frince" Ramirez have a stellar game with a 2/0/12 with the Luo Yi, while Jem "Jem" Lanojan took care of Edward "Edward" Dapadap, neutralizing any potential bsckdoors.

It was a closer affair between the Sonics and the Codebreakers, with the game extending to more than 20 minutes and Blacklist even leading in the late game.

However, Stephen "Sensui" Castillo's last-gasp lord steal went to naught as he was caught inside the lord pit against several ONIC PH members, overturning the odds for the Sonics.

Duane "Kelra" Pillas's Natan pick worked wonders for the men in yellow as he tallied four kills and nine assists without falling once, while Super Frince's Faramis and King Cyric "K1NGKONG" Perez combined for five kills and 17 assists while only falling once each.

Blacklist will try to avenge their loss on Sunday against ECHO, while ONIC PH will try to get win number five against TNC Pro Team.
