QUEZON CITY, Philippines — Two-time champion AFP Cavaliers prolonged their winning streak to five after downing the Senate Defenders at the end of the first-round eliminations of UNTV Cup Season 7 last Thursday.

Two-time champion AFP Cavaliers maintains its pristine record after routing the GSIS Furies, 93-87, in a match held on Sunday at the Pasig City Sports Center.

Best Players of the Game, Vicente Evidor and Boyet Bautista, led the AFP with their combined scores of 40 points and 9 rebounds.

This fourth victory earns the AFP a ticket to the second-round eliminations while the GSIS Furies bid farewell to this season after failing to win any of their games.

“Hopefully, magtuloy tuloy. It’s a long way to go. Syempre, hindi pa kailangang mag-relax,” AFP Cavaliers Coach CPL Cornelio “Sonny” Manucat said.

(Hopefully, our winning streak will continue. It’s a long way to go. Of course, we should not relax yet.)

The AFP is set to face the Season 6 champion Senate Defenders in a match on November 8, Thursday.

Two-time champion Judiciary Magis, meanwhile, finally barged into the win column after clobbering the Ombudsman Graft Busters, 104-65.

Richard Litonjua and Edu Mustre’s combined 24 points led the Judiciary to victory which has now climbed up in the rankings with one win and three losses.

“Itong huling ensayo namin, hard practice na kami, more on defense na kami dahil yun ang nagiging problema,” Judiciary Magis head coach said.

(Our last practice was a hard one, we practiced more on defense because that’s where we are lacking.)

The Judiciary is set to battle with PhilHealth Plus, who keeps two-two win-loss record, in a knockout game on Sunday.

The Ombudsman meanwhile will collide with the NHA Builders in a non-bearing game on November 8.

The rookie team PITC Global Traders also gained a bigger chance to advance to this season’s second round eliminations after defeating DOJ Boosters, 74-60.

Rod Vasaloo and Haddi Porto earned the Best Players of the Game title after bucketing 22 and 15 points, respectively.

“Kaya masaya kaming lahat dahil alam namin na this game is very important to the team. We promised Boss Dave [ Alamarinez] na pag-uwi nya may lalaruan pa sya na liga. So eto nag trabaho naman lahat,” PITC coach Victor Ycasiano said.

(We are happy because we know how important this game is. We promised Boss Dave Almarinez that when he returns he still has a league to play in. So, everyone worked hard for it.)

Meanwhile, DOJ Justice Boosters Coach Reynaldo Tomas Jr. said, “Back breaker talaga yung dalawang tres ng (PITC) imbes na apat na lang yung lamang nila naging sampu agad, eh. So kahit papaano nakakabawas ng moral yun…kaya hindi na namin kinaya noong huli.”

(The 2 consecutive three-pointers of PITC were back breakers. Instead of catching up only 4 points, it ballooned to 10 points. It was quite demoralizing; we failed to recover.) — Bernard Dadis / UNTV News & Rescue

Games on Sunday, October 28

2PM – Judiciary vs Ombudsman
3:30PM – PITC vs DOJ
5PM – AFP vs GSIS

Venue: Pasig City Sports Center

 

The Senate’s three-game winning streak snaps Sunday after the Defenders fell to PNP Responders, 60-59, in a heart-thundering game at the Pasig City Sports Center.

Allan Omiping’s three-point shot in the last minute and 60 seconds of the ball game lifted the PNP to victory. Omiping also contributed 16 points to the game, but Anton Tolentino’s 15-point finish with two rebounds and steals and one assist earned him the best player of the game title for the second time.

The Responders also dominated all quarters after blocking the Defenders’ maneuvers.

“Inensayo talaga namin ung depensa namin. So yung mga guys di tumigil dumepensa, naging compose that’s why we get the win,” PNP Responders Head Coach Harold Sta. Cruz said.

(We really practiced our defense. So, the guys didn’t stop on defending, they were composed that’s why we get the win.)

The DA Food Masters, meanwhile, keep their share of Group-B lead by downing the two-time champion Judiciary Magis, 106-78.

Christian Dematera snagged the Best Player of the Game award after bucketing 28 points with four rebounds, one assist and a steal.

This is Food Masters’ third straight win while the Magis are yet to snag their first victory of the season.

“Kulang namin depensa, eh. Kung makikita mo yung mga kalaban namin, parang tira lang ng tira sa labas. Ah, di nagkaroon ng pag-uusap sa loob,” Judiciary Magis Coach Joey Yabut said.

(We lacked defense. Our opponents were just shooting freely from the outside. Internal communication was missing.)

“Credit ito ng mga players. Sila sila mismo gusto manalo. So, ginawa namin yung game plan namin,” DA Food Master Coach Zaldy Realubit said.

(Credit goes to our players. They really wanted to win. So we just executed our game plan.)

Rookie team PITC Global Traders, meanwhile, successfully barged into the win column after smothering the GSIS Furies, 94-61.

Rod Savallo and Luis Lopez led the PITC by exploding a combined 28 points aside from grabbing 20 rebounds in the tournament.

PITC Coach Victor Ycasiano attributes their win to a well-thought out plan and teamwork.

“Yung game plan namin nagawa namin. We have to run… sabi nga namin at the same time we hit our basket,” PITC Global Traders Coach Victor Ycasiano said.

“Talagang hindi naging maganda yung preparation namin this coming weekend,” GSIS Furies Playing Coach Rene Boy Banzali said.

(Our preparation for this game were awful, really.) — Bernard Dadis  / UNTV News & Rescue
