The GSIS Furies is set to face the DOH Health Achievers in the first game on Sunday at the Pasig City Sports Center in the league of public servants, UNTV Cup.
Both teams have one win – two lost record.
Aside from the game this Sunday, both teams have two remaining games which they must win in order to advance to the second-round eliminations which begin on December 14.
Meanwhile, the DOJ Justice Boosters is adamant to bounce back and claim its second win after losing from two-time champion Judiciary Magis through a double overtime on October 29.
Despite the loss, DOJ head coach John Agbayani Jr. is satisfied with his cubs’ dedication and performance.
“Ang ganda ng laro eh… happy rin kami sa ipinakita ng DOJ team kasi lumaban kami hanggang dulo… so were happy ngayon na ang DOJ ngayon ay lumalaban,” Coach Agbayani said.
(The game was great… we’re also happy with the performance of the DOJ team because we really fought hard until the end… so we are really happy now that DOJ is really fighting.)
The DOJ team now beefs up training ahead of future games, with eyes on the quarter-finals.
“Every team naman ngayon sobrang hirap kalaban, eh. So every practice namin, we consider it talagang importante kasi ang hirap ng mga schedule ng players ko. So every time na nagpa-practice kami isinusulit talaga namin yung practice.”
(Every team now is too tough to beat. So in every practice session, we consider it very important because it’s hard to find time in their respected schedules. So when we’re in practice, we make sure that we make the most out of it.)
“Mahaba pa naman yung season so, hopefully makapag-adjust yung team… maka abot kami sa quarter finals.”
(The UNTV Cup Season 6 still has long way to go, hopefully we could still make some adjustments and qualify to the quarterfinals.)
The Justice Boosters will battle against PDEA Drug Busters on Sunday at 3:00 pm.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has summoned Bayan Muna Chairman Neri Colmenares, members of youth party-list groups over raps filed by the Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG).
The PNP-CIDG has filed trafficking and child abuse complaints against the said individuals over missing high school student Alicia Lucena.
Complainant Relissa Lucena said her daughter was recruited by Anakbayan.
However, Alicia surfaced on August 14 and has denied claims that she was missing and was kidnapped by Anakbayan. She said she joined Anakbayan voluntarily.
Assistant State Prosecutor Christine Perolino has required Colmenares along with Kabataan Party-list Rep. Sarah Elago, Anakbayan spokesperson Alex Danday and other members of the youth groups to appear during the preliminary investigation of the DOJ on August 27, September 10 and 24. —AAC
