An Exciting One and a Boring One

October 23, Sunday

Global  vs.  Pachanga
                                            2                2

After John Bedic [#8] and Nixon Leonora [#7] put Pachanga ahead [2-0]  Global was put on the brink of elimination.         But, from that point onwards, as they say in the vernacular -"Napabayaan".  Izzu [#10] [Global] scored, barely two minutes after Leonora made his.  Capitalizing on a defnsive lapse by Pachangas, Guirado hit the open man, Franko Borromeo on the 89 minute mark.  Borromeo sent it home for a 2-all count, with barely a minute left in the match !!  Whatta Game !!!

This is Nixon Leonora's goal in the 70th minute which put
 Pachanga ahead 2-0.

- Global Strikes Back -
 Izzu scores !
[Picture above and below]

Diop [#21] had an opportunity to put Pachanga ahead by 2 again [3-1]
 but he went wide on his Penalty Kick.

Guirado found an open Borromeo [#7] in the dying minutes of the match.  
Franko finished.  Score [2-2] !!

Araneta Coliseum

Rain or Shine   vs.   Alaska
                                           120                     84

In the biggest blow out of the season, the Elasto painters outclassd the Aces in practically all departments --

Field Goal %                                 57.5   to   37.8
Rebounds                                      58             33
Assists                                          30             19
Points of Turnovers                        17              8
2nd Chance Points                         18              7
Steals                                            6               5
3-Point Shots Made                        14              6

Jeffrei Chan's 15 markers in the 1st Qtr set the tone of the match early on but LA Tenorio's perimeter shooting in the 2nd helped bring down Rain or Shine's 16-pont 1st Qtr. lead to 8 [Alaska ended the 1st half with a Baracael buzzer-beater lay up].  Come the 3rd, another Elasto Painter, Larry Rodriguez,  scored double figures' [10 poinbts],shifting the momentum back to Rain or Shine.  The 4th Qtr then  saw Yneg Guiao's boys plaster Alaska, outscoring them by 17 [39 to 22], to end the match with an impressive 36-point margin.

Actually, Jeffrei Chan was slapped a foul on this play.
