PCCL Tuesday - November 22

November 22
Arena, San Juan

Falcons Take Down Bombers
                                         Adu - 73                      JRU - 58

The JRU Heavy Bombers, fresh from their conquest of the NU Bulldogs, met their match in the Adamson Falcons.  In the rebounds and turnover departments, the Falcons had 12 more [47 to 35] and [25-13], respectively.  Field goal poercentage wise it was 37% for both teams.  Free throw wise, Leo Austria's boys scored 19 points out of 27 charities given them, Vergel Meneses' charges, on the other hand put in 7 points from 11 charities.  [That's a bonus of 12 points from the stripe for Adamson - and well deservingly so - thay were more agressive, thus being awarded more free throws, 27].  

 Austin Manyara's [5 pts] and Roeder Cabrera's [6 pts] combined output of 11 points in the 3rd was telling: Adamson outscored JRU 23 -13 in that quarter. Come the 4th Qtr, the Falcons scored 25 points to the Bombers' 18.  in the end, it was Adamson - 73 and J. Rizal - 58.  This one gave the Falcons the right to battle the
San Sebastian Stags on the following Thursday, Nov.24, also at the Arena.

Austin Manyara [in white] led the Falcons in scoring [16 pts], followed by
Janus Lozada [14], and Jerick Canada [10].

Janus Lozada, probably in his last time to don a Falcon uniform,
accumulated the most minutes [29].
He pulled down 11 boards, dished out 5 assists,
converted both of his two 2-point field goal attempts,
missed both his two 3-point attempts, and made 12 of his 15 free throws.
  The next two images are of Lozada:
 gaining control of a loose ball and laying up a sure twinner.

Leading rebounder [13 boards], 
 Falcon frontman Eric Camson contributed 7 points.
He converted on only 3 of his 11 2-point field goal tries.

Manyara streches to gain control to no avail.
[3-frame sequence]

Allen Etrone is simply too quick for his defenders - scores two.

Next match for the Falcons - the San Sebastian Stags
Nov.24, Thursday, Arena

Charging Knights Eliminate Archers
                                       Letarn - 66                      DLSU - 61

Like the Bombers before them, the Archers were outrebounded by their opponents by at least 10, and outscored [fell behind] in the 3rd Qtr.  This helped negate DLS' advantage in turnover points [21 for the Archers] [the Knights had only 11 turnover points]. Four Knights put in double figures: Kevin Racal [14], Kevin Alas [14],Mark Cruz [11], and Raymond Almazan [11].  Only Norbert Torres scored over 10 points for DLS [16].

It was Mark Cruz, the younger brother of former Fighting Maroon Marvin Cruz, and his timely perimeter conversions that gave the Knights enough cushion, entering the closing minutes of the 4th Qtr.  It seemd that the LaSallites couldn't contain the wily point guard.

Kevin Racal escapes his defender, Tata Marata, to get into scoring position.
                                           [4-frame sequence]

Si Idol, Kevin Alas,

pinanis si

Papot Paredes ng DLS.

Mark Cruz, the smallest guy on the court, shocked the boys from Taft

with his timely

perimeter conversions.

This helped

keep the Archers at bay and kept the pressure on them.

Again, Letran Go-to-Guy Kevin Alas eludes, this time, Olan Tampus,
and gets into the lane.  Norbert Torres ends up fouling Kevin.
