MANILA, Philippines -- Falcons AP Bren secured the last slot in the upcoming Mobile Legends Mid-Season Cup (MSC) by defeating RSG Philippines, 3-1, in the lower bracket finals of the MPL Philippines Season 13 playoffs.

The defending champions had a slow start, succumbing to the Raiders in Game 1, 15-4, in the almost 16-minute game. But they managed to turn the tide in both Games 2 and 3, even though RSG Philippines had a strong lead in the early game, to propel themselves to match-point.

Game 4 saw RSG Philippines valiantly try to extend the series, but the lord dance in the 18th-minute saw three heroes down on the side of the raider, which gave Falcons AP Bren the signal to end the series and book their ticket to MSC happening in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia next month.

Meanwhile, prior to the lower bracket finals, MPL Philippines awarded the top players as well as celebrated the different creative teams who had contributed to the league's 13th season.
