DLSU WINS SECOND STRAIGHT UAC VALORANT CROWN AFTER A DOMINATING 3-0 SWEEP AGAINST ADMU
History repeated itself as the DLSU’s Viridis Arcus went on a rampaging sweep against ADMU’s LG Esports, 3-0, to secure its second-straight AcadArena University Alliance Cup-Valorant championship, Sunday evening.
DLSU went berserk in Game three after casting a jaw-dropping 13-0 run to claim the championship.
The first game of the series saw an intense match extend to a deciding overtime, but Xavi “xavi8k” Juan was right on time after dropping a 40-bomb on overtime to give the Green Archers the lead, 13-12.
The heroics of Jesus Ricardo “Susej” Guiab also helped the squad after taking down Dippy (Sova) and FleX in the late game.
Game 2 was just as tense as Viridis Arcus racked a five-point cushion, 11-6, to move a match away from wrapping up the league.
But LG Esports’ Yabba (Astra) and FleX (Skye) made it hard for La Salle after executing Clutch performances in the 18th and 19th round closing the gap within three points, 8-11.
Viridis Arcus picked up the pace and managed to close out Game Two through a 13-10 decision.
It was do-or-die for the Blue Eagles on Icebox and they were hoping to pull out a redemption card as they copped the first three rounds of the map.
That, however, was not enough, as the Green Archers orchestrated a jaw-dropping comeback that the men in blue never seemed to recover from, 13-3.
Xavi “Xavi8k” Juan (Raze) in Game Three ended with 20 kills, 12 deaths, and 4 assists while Jesus “suseJ” Guiab (Viper), finished with 19 kills, 9 deaths, and 7 assists for La Salle.
On the other hand, Matthew “Matteo” Brilliantes (Reyna) spearheaded Ateneo with 15 kills, 15 deaths, and 3 assists while Justin “Dippy” Ngkaion (Sova) added 11 kills, 14 deaths, and an assist in the Game Three loss.
Xavi “Xavi8k” Juan was named Logitech G Lodi of the Season which will bring home a whole set of peripherals that includes a G304 Mouse, G213 Keyboard, and G331 Headset.
Aside from claiming their second straight title of the VALORANT UAC CUP SEASON 2, Viridis Arcus will be receiving lion’s share of the PHP 120,000 prize pool in cash, grants, and limited merchandise.
