MANILA, Philippines – Bren Victress emerged as the last Filipino team standing in the Mobile Legends Women’s Invitational after thwarting Omega Empress, 2-0, in their best-of-three quarterfinals on Saturday, January 29.

Drawn into an all-Filipino clash with Omega, Bren showed no mercy and cruised to back-to-back quick wins to set up a semifinal date with Indonesia’s GPX Basreng.

Krizzia Mae “Krish” Edangalino (Esmeralda) showed the way for the Victress in their series-clinching Game 2 victory, churning out 5 kills and 4 assists against 1 death as Bren disposed off Omega with a whopping 14-3 kill advantage.
