MANILA - He's called bagyong "BennyQT" for a reason. 

Frederic Benedict "Bennyqt" Gonzales whipped up a storm to save Echo Philippines' MPL Philippines Season 10 opening match against Onic PH, 2-1. 

With Echo Philippines down big in the eighth minute of Game 3, Bennyqt's Wanwan let out the "Crossbow of Tang" for a triple kill that salvaged their chances. 
And after he repeated Wanwan's ultimate in the 13th minute leading to a mega kill, Echo never looked back and secured the win within 17 minutes. 

BennyQT emerged the MVP in Game 3, behind a 8/1/2 KDA record. 

Echo Philippines first got on the board in Game 1, with rookie Sanji and BennyQT melting down three Onic Philippines players near the 17th-minute mark giving them the breathing space for a death march, leading to the victory. 

Sanji earned the MVP honors in Game 1 with his Xavier, with three kills and six dimes. 

Onic Philippines equalized in Game 2, behind a masterful performance by Frince "Super Frince" Ramirez, whose Faramis earned 4 kills and two assists. 

In other MPL news, Bren Esports finally got one on the board by sending Onic Philippines to a 2-game losing skid. 

TNC, who ended last season at 4th place, slides to the last spot of the standings.
