QUEZON CITY, Philippines — The Bureau of Customs Transformers aim to maintain their no-games-lost record at the UNTV Cup this season; a tour de force by the team after toppling every opponent in the first round elimination.

For this, the Transformers, headed by Coach Kenneth Duremdes are preparing rigidly for their upcoming match against the ferocious MMDA Black Wolves, who are known for their run-and-gun play on the UNTV Cup hard court.

“We will prepare hard kasi sayang itong record namin… hardwork  and kailangan namin ituloy. Itong laban ng Bureau of Customs para sa transformations,” Coach Kenneth Duremedes said.

(We will prepare hard because we don’t want to waste our record. Hard work and we need to continue this fight of the Bureau of Customs for the transformations.)

Although the BOC have proved to be the team to beat this season, they admit that the road to finals is no cakewalk.

Assistant Coach Bong dela Cruz added, “Every team dito sa UNTV Cup very tough, lahat sila naka-prepare, lahat sila magagaling so kailangan ready kami every game. Yung conditioning namin, yung stamina namin and yung strength namin kailangan mag-double effort kami.”

Every team here at UNTV Cup is very tough. They are all prepared. They are all good. So we need to be ready in every game. The team’s conditioning, the stamina, and strength, we need to make double effort because we are going into the second round.”

On the other hand, the MMDA Black Wolves, who now possess a 4-3 win-loss record, are gearing up before taking on the Transformers.

Meanwhile, Bureau of Customs Commissioner Nicanor Faeldon calls on other government agencies to take part in the league of public servants.

“Second round na tayo, pasalamat kami nakapasok kami dun. Hindi kami natalo sa first round… I also encourage the other government agencies to participate para mas masaya, 13 pa lang tayo gawin nating 20 yan mas maganda.”

“Of course, sa mga supporters ng UNTV Cup, please continue to support it this is a very nice public service.”

Rookie team PDEA Drug Busters eases to the second round eliminations of the league of public servants, UNTV Cup.

This, as the DOJ Justice Boosters toppled the Ombudsman Graft Busters, 95-73 on Sunday’s triple header.

Based on the league’s point system, the DOJ, Ombudsman and DA Food Masters get eliminated from the league this season, while PDEA reaches the next round.

Meanwhile, Group A’s DOH Health Achievers, COA Enablers and BFP Firefighters also exit the games.

In the AFP-DOH hard court battle, the AFP Cavaliers defeated the DOH Health Achievers 92-71.

With this, the soldiers share the 5-1 win-loss standing with the Senate Defenders in Group A.

And in the GSIS-PNP match, the UNTV Cup crowd saw an impressive win by the GSIS Furies over defending champion PNP Responders 76-68.

GSIS Furies Head Coach Myk Saguiguit said, “Ang will nila, talagang trinabaho nila nang husto. Kasi hindi namin inisip na we’re in sa second round. Sabi ko i-solidify pa natin, maka-tsamba tayo against defending champion PNP.”

(They willed it. They really worked hard for it. We didn’t think that we’re going to the second round. I said to them, “We must solidify ][our performnace]. Who knows, we may actually beat the defending champion, PNP.)

This win catapults the Furies to the third spot in Group A with four games won and two games lost, surpassing the Responders which now has a 3-3 win-loss standing.

PNP Responders Head Coach Erik Samson, “Nahirapan kami. Especially hindi kami gaanong nakadepensa nang maayos doon sa mga one-on-one nila, sa atake nila, at maaga kami nag-penalty.”

(We had a hard time beating them. Especially when we failed to guard them closely on their one-on-one plays, attack plays. And we got into penalty situation early in the game.)

Rene Boy Banzali and James Patrick Abugan were hailed as the best players of the game after bucketing 54 combined points.

Over 200 motorists ignored dry run of carpool lane in EDSA

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Monday, December 11th, 2017


MANILA, Philippines – Using a CCTV at its metrobase in Makati City, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) personnel strictly monitored the passage of private vehicles with 2 or more passengers along the 5th lane of EDSA.

Aside from CCTV’s, traffic enforcers assigned on overpasses have 3 handycams for clearer video footage of the vehicles.

From 6 in the morning to 12 in the afternoon, Monday, the MMDA monitored about 1,359 motorists not following the Carpool Lane Policy.

The agency admits not being able to determine the number of passengers’ onboard more than 3,700 heavily-tinted private vehicles.

The MMDA admitted it is one of the challenges they are facing in implementing the carpool lane.

“In terms of our cameras, there might be some adjustments in their positioning. There are cameras where when you use against the light, you could not see how many people are in the backseat. For now, we will maximize our resources,” MMDA Spokesperson Celine Pielago said.

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) is the agency in charge of regulating car-tints.

The LTO previously said it will study anew its regulation in terms of car-tints and will release new guidelines regarding the matter.

For now, the MMDA will not apprehend motorists violating the Carpool Lane Policy.

Meanwhile, the agency’s plan to enforce the said policy along EDSA drew flak among netizens.

Some netizens argue the Carpool Lane Policy will not be effective since cameras could not capture passengers in the backseat.

Some also said the Philippines cannot adopt the traffic system of other countries since Philippine roads are narrower and smaller.

The MMDA, meanwhile, clarifies that the implementation of the carpool lane along EDSA is still under study.

“Give us a week to assess this policy. If it’s not effective, we will not implement it,” said Pielago.

Should the enforcement of the said policy pushes through, apprehended motorists will face charges of disregarding traffic sign and reckless driving, and fines of up to P650. – Joan Nano | UNTV News & Rescue

DOJ-Ombudsman crucial game set on Sunday at UNTV Cup

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Saturday, December 9th, 2017

Any winner of this match between DOJ Justice Boosters and Ombudsman Graft Busters will not advance to the second round elimination round of UNTV Cup Season 6 (PHOTOVILLE International)

The fate of rookie team Department of Agriculture Food Masters and the PDEA Drug Busters lies on the outcome of the battle between the DOJ Justice Boosters and the Ombudsman Graft Busters on Sunday afternoon at the Olivarez Gymnasium in Parañaque City.

Should the Justice Boosters defeat the Graft Busters, there will be a triple-tie among the DOJ, PDEA and DA teams.

And based on the rules of the UNTV Cup point system, PDEA will advance to the next round while the DA will exit the league this season.

But if the Ombudsman beats the DOJ, the Department of Agriculture team will enter the next round based on the win over the other rule.

It should be noted that the DA team won against the PDEA team 104-100 last September 17.

Of the seven teams in Group B this season of the league of public servants, the Judiciary Magis, Malacañang-PSC Kamao and the NHA Builders all with 5 games won and 1 game lost will advance to the second round eliminations.

Meanwhile, the AFP Cavaliers is adamant to clutch its fifth win as the first round eliminations of the UNTV Cup Season 6 comes to an end on Sunday.

The two-time champion is set to take on the DOH Health Achievers in the third game.

The soldiers aim to level with the Senate Defenders which is on the top spot in Group A with a 5-1 win-loss standing.

Last Sunday’s neck-and-neck clash between the AFP and the PNP saw the soldiers triumph over the policemen, 100-92.

Under Group A, the BFP Firefighters, the DOH Health Achievers and the COA Enablers this season did not succeed to ease to the next round of the games. — Bernard Dadis | UNTV News & Rescue
